Brad Austin Appointed to GANA Board of Directors

The Glass Association of North America (GANA) has announced the appointment of Brad Austin of Apogee (Viracon) as an officer on its board of directors. Austin will begin serving as secretary and will eventually become president in 2008.

"Brad brings a new and exciting viewpoint to the board," said Dennis Csehi, GANA president, of Atwood Mobile Products. "I look forward to working with Brad in our continuing efforts to increase the already excellent quality of GANA for our members."

Austin has spent his entire career with Viracon, starting in 1978 in sales. In 1985, he was named director of architectural sales, and was later named vice president and general manager of Marcon Coatings, another Apogee company, for 18 months before returning to Viracon as vice president of sales and marketing.

"From my past association with GANA, participating in Glass Week and the BEC division program committee, it is very rewarding to be nominated to the GANA board of directors, so that I can further support our GANA members and help focus our efforts on the issues facing the industry," said Austin.
