The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has announced the appointment of Mark Austin, Marketing Director of Hazlemere Windows, as Vice-President.

Mark was elected for the role by his fellow members of the Home Improvement Executive to represent the Home Improvement side of the industry on the GGF Board.

Mark is currently Chairman of the GGF Window and Door Group and has plenty of experience working with membership organisations with his roles as Director in the football industry (for Wycombe Wanderers and QPR), Chairman of the southern region of the Marketing Managers Association (MMA), and chairman of the quarterly meetings of commercial managers from the Premier League, Championship, Leagues One and Two. 

In addition, in 2008, Mark joined Hazlemere Window Company Ltd, working in the Commercial team doing Marketing for the Retail & Trade Divisions, along with promoting the Group’s six websites and its showrooms in High Wycombe and Welwyn Garden City.

Mark comments on his appointment, “I am pleased to have been elected as GGF Vice-President and happy to represent and express Members’ interests and concerns across all the sectors within the industry. I would also encourage each member company to get the maximum from their GGF annual membership fee by ensuring they get a return on their investment through benefits such as networking at the numerous meetings and events the GGF organises all over the country. I’d also like to Members to take full advantage of all the marketing and PR tools offered free to Members via the members area on the new GGF website.”

In his role as Vice-President, Mark will support the current GGF President John Agnew until 31st December 2019 when John’s tenure expires. Both roles are purely voluntary ones, along with all the other elected Directors who sit on the GGF Board. With lots of personnel changes over the last few years, Mark explains how he hopes to offer stability for the company: “I hope we can steer the GGF ship into less choppy waters and revitalise what is at heart a superb organisation with over 40 years of history.”
