Fenestration Canada has announced changes to its 2014-15 executive.
Al Dueck, president of DUXTON Windows & Doors has resigned effective July 15, 2014, the association said in an announcement.
“The past two years have been an excellent experience, working and getting acquainted with a group of very dedicated professionals within the industry,” Dueck said. “However, I have become aware that I need to find a better balance between immediate family and a young, growing business. It has been my special pleasure to participate in the creation of our own Ottawa office.
“Robert Rivard, executive director, and his team have made a significant impact and did an excellent job organizing the AGM in Winnipeg. I intend to make ongoing efforts to continue to give back through continued involvement as the importance of the Fenestration Canada continues to grow.”
“Al’s dedication and persistent support of the association as an officer will be missed,” says Fenestration Canada president Skip MacLean, from Tru Tech Doors in Vaughan, Ontario. “We wish him well in his future endeavors as he focusses on family and business issues.”
Fenestration Canada’s nominating committee has appointed Greg Dickie of Atlantic Windows Ltd. in Port Elgin N.B. to replace Dueck as first vice-president. Dickie currently serves as chairman of the association’s Canadian code compliance committee.
“We are very pleased to welcome Greg to the executive and look forward to his fresh approach and energetic contribution to the association” says Yvan Houle, (Portes et Fentres Prsident Inc. – Longueil, QC) who serves as the immediate past president and chairman of Fenetration Canada’s nominating committee.
Continuing to serve on the executive are: Allan Doyle of Global Windows and Doors, Richibucto, N.B. as second vice-president and treasurer Kevin Pelley, Kohltech International Ltd., Debert, N.S.
