The Group Finance Director for Anglian Group, Phil Tweedie, has been appointed Chairman of the Glass and Glazing Federation Home Improvement Executive, it was announced yesterday. The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is the primary trade association for companies that make, supply or fit flat glass and related products, representing more than 60 per cent of the industry’s turnover. Tweedie will also sit on the Glass and Glazing Federation Board of Directors, thereby becoming a key member of the industry steering group.

This is a significant appointment at a critical time for the industry, with economic and environmental issues high on the agenda. With 13 years’ experience in the glazing business at Anglian, Tweedie will play an important role in steering the industry towards greater technological innovation.

Speaking about his appointment, Tweedie said, “I am honoured to have been asked to join the GGF board, giving me an opportunity to further focus the industry on developing solutions to reduce energy consumption. It is an important time for the glass and glazing industry, particularly with the forthcoming introduction of the Green Deal scheme. Increasing energy costs mean home owners are looking for ways to reduce their energy requirements and the GGF has a central role to play in challenging the industry to develop and provide affordable ways to do this.”
