Penn Named BEC Division Technical Committee Chair
May 13, 2009

The Glass Association of North America's (GANA) Building Envelope Contractors (BEC) Division announced that Doug Penn of United Glass Corporation is the new chairman of its Technical Committee. He succeeds Henry Taylor of Kawneer Company, who was elected as chairman of the BEC Division earlier this year.

"The BEC Division Technical Committee has a proven history of success," said Penn. "I look forward to guiding the committee as we build on those successes and continue our valuable contributions to this industry. I hope that others will see the impact that the Technical Committee can have and will join our effort."

Penn graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in marketing and joined PPG Industries as a management trainee. He progressed through several positions within PPG's branch system, including contract manager, salesman, branch manager and regional sales manager for the company's architectural aluminum group. He left PPG to form PITTCO and manage the new company's fabrication and distribution center, as well as their marketing group. Penn started with YKK AP in 1995 when PITTCO shut down to coordinate the development of the company's installation instructions and help establish the marketing department. He remained at YKK AP until 2008 when he joined United Glass Corporation as the company's national architectural product manager.

The BEC Technical Committee has been responsible for several projects over the past five years, including the GANA Project Managers Reference Manual, as well as development of informational bulletins about shop drawings and more.
