New board member

Fensa has appointed Phil Slinger, chief executive of Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB), to the Fensa board.

GGF president and Fensa chairman Tony Smith said: “It’s a dynamic and diverse board with one broad aim: to make things better for our industry.”

The Fensa board now has representation from all the trade bodies representing the framing materials in the industry. CAB joins the British Woodworking Federation, Steel Window Association and British Plastics Federation on the board of the government-authorised scheme that monitors Building Regulation compliance for replacement windows and doors.

Phil Slinger said: “It’s important that CAB is represented at industry meetings and that we work with other trade organisations for the benefit of our members and the wider industry.”

Anda Gregory, chief development officer for the GGF, said: “The culture within Fensa is one of collaboration. We work with partners and industry leaders to ensure the Fensa community have unparalleled access to experts, products and services that help their business thrive. We’ll continue to drive forward change for the betterment of our industry and our members.”
