This essential and informative seminar is presented by Attila Arian, president of Schüco USA and Lyle Hill, president of Keytech North America and Glass.com®, “C-Suite Changes Coming in the Contract Glazing Industry” will be held Wednesday, March 27 from 1:30 – 3 p.m.

No, we don’t mean personnel changes but rather compelling and disruptive trends that will change how the contract glazing industry obtains, bids and executes work. This session, led by two of the most knowledgeable authorities in the contract glazing business, will discuss the developing changes in channels to market, customer base changes and more. A not-to-be missed session due to the importance of the subject.

Attila Arian is a senior level executive with more than 25 years of progressively responsible experience in the construction industry of Germany and the U.S. He has served as CEO of several German design-build contractors before he joined Seele in 2009 as the president of its New York-based U.S. operation. Under Arian’s leadership, Seele grew to a recognized façade contractor in the U.S. with an impressive project portfolio including the Apple Cube, the Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C., the Miami Art Museum, the Kimbell Art Museum in Dallas and The Broad Museum in Los Angeles.

Lyle Hill has more than 40 years of experience, including ownership of one of the country’s largest glazing contractors for nearly 25 years.
