Kaz Spiewakowski and Timothy Perry have been appointed to the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers’ (GAI) executive committee.
Kaz Spiewakowski, managing director at GEZE UK (pictured above), has been appointed as treasurer. He joined the architectural ironmongery industry in 2007 and was MD of Exidor for almost six years before moving to his current role at GEZE UK. He has served on the GAI executive committee since 2014.
Timothy Perry, architectural hardware consultant at Franz Schneider Brakel GmbH & Co (FSB), is the newest member of the executive committee. He has worked in the industry for more than a quarter of a century and is also on the GAI education committee.
He started his career in architectural ironmongery at the trade counter of a Lloyd Worrall and gained his GAI Diploma in 2004. Timothy then went to work in Germany for FSB before moving to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Singapore, writing international project specifications for Häfele.
Now back in the UK and back with FSB, Timothy is an architectural hardware consultant for American, British, European and Singapore standards for its global projects.
Julian Newman, president of the GAI, said: “Kaz and Timothy’s combined industry experience and commitment to their own professional development make them fantastic role models for the industry and they add yet further expertise to the GAI’s executive committee.
“We’re looking forward to utilising their knowledge and experience to deliver value to our members all over the world.”
