Mr Glover, the managing director of West Yorkshire Windows, brings a wealth of industry experience to the role, along with an understanding of the way the GGF works, having spent time with the GGF Technical Groups under the Home Improvement Executive as part of his role as Chairman of the Window and Door Group.
Glover said of his appointment: “I am pleased to accept this new role at a time of much change in our industry.
“I look forward to helping the Federation meet the many challenges ahead to representing GGF Members as Vice President.”
Nigel Rees, group chief executive, GGF, added: “We are delighted Andrew has agreed to become our new Vice President and I am sure he will be a great asset to the GGF.
“With so many issues affecting our industry, his experience and input will be invaluable.”
Earlier this week, the GGF met with Shadow Chancellor, Ed Balls to discuss industry issues including the overly complex Green Deal and the Federation’s ‘Cut the VAT’ campaign.
Mr Balls discussed with Giles Wilson, deputy chief executive and director of technical affairs, GGF about the key issues surrounding the GGF’s ‘Cut the VAT’ campaigns on home improvement, maintenance and repair work and on energy efficient windows.
In addition, the briefing to Mr Balls outlined the current issues around the Coalition Government’s schemes on energy efficiency schemes and in particular Green Deal and ECO (Energy Company Obligation).
Wilson said: “This was a very positive start to the GGF’s engagement strategy with MPs in the run up to the election.
“It is important we get our messages across and that MPs are fully informed of our Members’ concerns, and the many solutions the GGF is offering to make the UK housing stock more energy efficient.”
