The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) hired of Nathalie Thibault as technical manager, glass products and Canadian industry affairs. Thibault is attending FGIA’s annual conference Feb. 10-13. Throughout 2020, Thibault will shadow Marg Webb, glass products and Canadian industry affairs director at FGIA to prepare to take on her duties when Webb retires in 2021.

Janice Yglesias, executive director at FGIA, said, “[Thibault] comes to us with over 15 years’ experience in the insulating glass arena. With sales, project management and technical roles throughout her career, she is well-positioned to represent FGIA in various Canadian standards and regulatory arenas, as well as to guide the work of our glass products council members. Her work ethic and experience plus her Canadian residency and fluency in French all came together to produce the ideal candidate for this role.”

Webb said, “The glass initiatives of FGIA are critical to the new organization, so it’s exceptionally beneficial to have [Thibault] on board so early in 2020, allowing us about a full year of operating together on all glass and Canadian activities. We have the opportunity to travel together throughout this year to all relevant industry events, creating direct access to firsthand learning experiences. With the volume of knowledge and the vast array of contacts to be retained within this role, a comprehensive and coordinated plan executed over an ample time frame is sure to create a seamless transition.”
