Viracon of Owatonna, Minn., has named Jacques Ouellette of TGI Technical Glass Inc. of Surrey, British Columbia, as its newest sales representative. Ouellette will serve western Canada in this role.

Ouellette has more than 35 years of sales experience in the glass industry. His career began at PPG Industries of Pittsburgh, where he eventually served as director of sales for their Montreal distribution center. From 1990-2008, Ouellette enjoyed stints at Glaverbec, AFG/AGC Glass and Bronco Industries. He won five sales awards with AFG/AGC, including the top North American Salesperson in 2006.

In 2008, Ouellette started TGI Technical Glass Inc. “We’re thrilled to welcome Jacques to the Viracon team,” says Garret Henson, vice president of sales for Viracon. “His strong relationships with architects and glazing contractors in western Canada will allow us to effectively promote Viracon in the region. The success he’s had with TGI Technical Glass Inc. speaks to the success Viracon will enjoy from his expertise.”

“I’m honored to have TGI Technical Glass Inc. represent Viracon,” says Ouellette. “… This opportunity allows me to deal directly with architects, and I’m looking forward to working with all kinds of building influencers from the design stage of a project all the way to its completion.”
