The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) Group has announced the appointment of Kevin Buckley as interim Chief Executive to take the Federation and its subsidiary companies through its next phase of development.

Kevin joined the GGF Group almost a year ago as interim CEO of the subsidiary companies but has more recently worked as a strategic consultant for the Group. He also boasts nearly thirty years worth of senior management experience at international companies such as technology and telecoms giant NEC and leadership roles with Hertfordshire Local Authorities and university start-ups.

Kevin comments on his new role: “I am delighted to accept this role and very much looking forward to great progress ahead. The GGF and its five subsidiaries are in good shape but there is of course always room for improvement. During the second half of 2017, I have been responsible for the management and planning processes for the GGF’s commercial companies and I am now looking forward to making a real difference for the GGF and its membership.”

John Agnew, GGF President, also comments on the appointment: “We are pleased that Kevin has accepted the role. I have no doubt his wealth of experience and senior management skills in numerous complex organisations will be of great benefit to the GGF and our group of subsidiary companies.”

Kevin concludes: “I am aware of some negative comments made recently in the trade media and of course when people leave an organisation it is inevitable opinions will be formed. However, I prefer to deal with the facts and the future. The facts being the GGF is the leading trade body in the sector, it has a highly skilled and very experienced professional staff. It also has a loyal and growing membership and is financially secure. My role in the immediate future will be to bring greater stability and to work closely with the GGF Board and other senior leaders to complete our transitional period and to build on our strengths for the benefit of our Members”.
