The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has announced Kevin Buckley will become the permanent GGF Group Chief Executive.

The news should be welcome to GGF Members, as it confirms the stability and long term commitment the GGF Board has made in ensuring the Federation moves ahead in the right direction, with a permanent and experienced leader heading it up.

John Agnew, GGF President, commented: “On behalf of the GGF Board and the Members, I would like to congratulate Kevin in his new permanent role and I have no doubt, he will continue the sterling work he has done for the GGF Group over the past year.

“We all look forward to him leading the GGF and our subsidiary companies onto greater achievements for the benefit of all connected to the Federation.”

With almost 30 years senior management experience, Kevin (pictured) has played a crucial role in growing and developing international companies, such as technology and telecoms giant NEC and in various strategic and leadership roles with diverse organisations such as Hertfordshire Local Authorities and university start-ups.

Kevin hopes to use his substantial expertise in business development and transformational management to benefit the GGF.

On accepting the role, Kevin said: “I am delighted to accept the position on a permanent basis. For the last twelve months, I have been an interim employee of the GGF Group, working initially on the GGF’s commercial subsidiaries before taking on the role of interim Group Chief Executive.

“With our long term strategies firmly in place and the support of great staff and our Members, I look forward to helping the organisation grow and develop across all parts of the GGF Group.”
