The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has appointed Phil Pluck as its new chief executive.

Phil is currently the managing director and commercial director for the Royal Town Planning Institute which has a membership base of 23,000. He has also worked with and advised on operational and commercial strategy for a number of other membership bodies as well as holding commercial directorships in the charity, private and government sectors.

“It is a very real privilege to be joining the GGF as their next CEO,” Phil said. “It is clear from my discussions with the board that they wish to see the federation grow its influence across the sector and with government. Being part of the GGF at this time to both support its current success and to take it to the next stage of its growth is very exciting.”

Phil will officially start at the GGF on May 2, 2017, taking over from Brian Baker who is currently interim chief executive.
