Technoform Glass Insulation, a member of Technoform Group, welcomed Helen Sanders, Ph.D., to its North American market team. Sanders will help develop strategic markets and relationships, and industry-leading fenestration products, while guiding and supporting the company's continued focus on energy performance and sustainability, according to a company release.

"TGI has an amazing story to tell about how its products contribute to energy-efficient fenestration systems – both in the glass edge and in the frame," says Sanders. "I believe they are best-in-class at what they do and how they add value for their customers and for high-performance buildings. I am excited at the opportunities ahead for me as part of TGI's team, for the company and for our industry as a whole."

"We are very excited for Helen to join the Technoform team," says Brian Stephens, TGI market team manager. "Helen's entrepreneurial spirit will be a great fit within the Technoform culture and will allow us to grow and continue to be a major player in the North American façade industry. Helen's personality, skills and experience align well with our team's strategic focus on business development and innovation."

As part of TGI's North American market team, Sanders' efforts will be focused at a high, strategic level. She will work with colleagues within Technoform and across the industry. 

During the last 17 years of her 22-year career in the glass industry, Sanders has been involved in creating and developing a new market for electrochromic glazing, and in EC product development and commercialization. Most recently, she served vice president of technical business development at Sage Electrochromics Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Saint-Gobain. Sanders currently serves on the board of the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance and as chair of its Emerging Technologies and Innovation Committee. She is also chair of the Glazing Industry Code Committee, and vice chair of the Glass Association of North America's Energy Division.
