“As a glass person, I’m eager and excited to help the CGA navigate the management shift and begin to re-unite the commercial glazing industry across Canada,” says Porayko. “Due to personal and professional commitments, I’m am unable to be considered for the permanent position so as interim ED, part of my role includes recruiting my successor, which will not be easy. The CGA board has high standards and are looking for the right fit for the long term.”
