On March 10th, the Board of Fenestration Manitoba voted to elect Mr. Gord Seier as its new President, following in the footsteps of Mr. Al Dueck, who had previously announced his intention to step down from the role.
The Board of Directors wishes to thank Mr. Dueck for his unwavering devotion to our industry and particularly to Fenestration Manitoba. Without his will and determination, our membership and accomplishments would not be what they are today. FenCon, Al’s brainchild, has come from an idea only a few years ago to a sought-after international gathering bringing manufacturer from across North America to Winnipeg to network and learn. What a great accomplishment – one that has brought visibility to Fenestration Manitoba and our industry. Al, Fenestration Manitoba owes you a debt of gratitude. You are a force of nature and we appreciate all that you have done for our Manitoba Industry. THANK YOU!
Al remains an active member of Fenestration Manitoba and will be spearheading FenCon 22 once our lives have returned to more favorable travel and in-person meeting conditions. Stay tuned, we have certainly not heard the last of Al.
Gord comes with a wealth of Industry knowledge, experience and connections having been an active participant in the window and door Industry for many years.
After starting his career at Willmar Windows, where he developed extensive experience in manufacturing, Gord spent most of his career in the fenestration Industry and has experience in the vinyl, fiberglass, wood and glass sectors. His strong technical background makes him an ideal candidate for leading our Industry. Gord’s implication and volunteering is not limited to his industry but also extends to his community. Gord has volunteered in many Fenestration Manitoba events, serving also on IGMAC’s certification committees while being an active member Toastmasters for 15 years and being involved with Mission Mobilizers.
Gord has the full support of the Board of Directors of Fenestration Manitoba and we will do all that we can to help him, and our association succeed. Thank you Gord for stepping up! Please join us in welcoming Gord Seier to Fenestration Manitoba.
