The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) has announced the retirement of stalwart industry leader Marg Webb after 22 years in the glass industry.  Webb began her time at the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Association of Canada (IGMAC) in 2000 prior to that organization’s transition into the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance, where Webb led as executive director for nearly two decades.  At the beginning of the year, she resigned her post as FGIA’s Glass Products and Canadian Industry Affairs director for a long-deserved retirement.

         “Webb has been a strong guiding force within the glass and especially insulating glass industry for many years,” said Janice Yglesias, FGIA executive director.  “Her exceptional work ethic, strong leadership, and no-nonsense approach have paved the way for advancements and growth in that market.  Her reputation has always preceded her throughout the industry and her knowledge and expertise are well respected.  With Webb’s retirement will most certainly come an obvious hole in the glass industry, and one that will be felt by many for some time.  But this rest and relaxation has been earned after many years of dedicated service to the industry and is well-deserved.”

         “When I started with IGMAC right before the merger, I was the only female leading an industry organization,” said Webb, who was hired at the time for her background in certification, having previously written a program for the Canadian Manufactured Housing Institute and organization development and change management.  “Now, 22 years later, they are all led by strong, competent women.  I’d like to think that I had some influence in opening up executive positions for women in the industry.”
