The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) has hired Amy Roberts as its new director of Canadian and technical glass operations. Roberts will be training with Marg Webb, FGIA glass products and Canadian industry affairs director, prior to Webb’s retirement later in 2021. Roberts has more than 20 years of industry experience in both residential and commercial window manufacturing as well as glass and insulating glass manufacturing.
“Amy has experience as a technical committee and board member at the Fenestration Association of BC as well as within the market transformation committee in Canada,” says Janice Yglesias, FGIA executive director. “Her sales background supports strong customer service and interpersonal skills and her intense interest in the technical performance standard requirements and code development aspects of our industry make her an excellent fit for this position. We are thrilled to welcome Amy to FGIA.”
Roberts will be working from her home in British Columbia, Canada, and will be attending the upcoming FGIA Virtual Annual Conference, February 23-25.
“The glass initiatives of FGIA are critical to the relatively new organization,” says Webb. “In 2020, when AAMA and IGMA combined the distinct strengths and knowledge of both organizations to better serve the glass and fenestration industries, both parties committed to making FGIA a resource for U.S. and Canadian markets and members alike. Roberts’ addition to FGIA’s staff further cements this promise.”
