award to his friend, Jean-Louis Tourikian.


 

Tourikian married his wife, Rita, in 1967. They have two children, Eric and Valerie. A third, Stephanie, died in a traffic accident in 1994.

From 1968 to 1974, Tourikian was a supervisor at Western Electric . He then spent five years in sales at Inmont Specialty Chemicals. He worked from 1979 to 1993 as the national sales manager for PRC Chemicals, then from 1993 to 2008 as a business manager at Cardinal Glass . Tourikian still works in the industry under his own company name, Tourig Consultants.

Tourikian's association involvement has been outstanding. He served as a director of the Canadian Window and Door Manufacturer's Association (now Fenestration Canada) for 15 years, including a term as president in 2005 and 2006. Tourikian was deeply involved in bringing the CWDMA under the management of the Wood Manufacturing Council, and initiated most of the committee structure that persists to the present day.

Fenestration Canada president Yvan Houle gave the award to Tourikian in a bilingual presentation at the President's Dinner on the first night of the AGM. "Jean-Louis is professional, loyal, sincere and a good friend to have," Houle said.
