Ken Brenden to Retire from AAMA
Officials from the American Architectural Manufacturers Association announced May 12 that Ken Brenden, AAMA technical services director, will retire, effective May 22. Brenden has been an integral part of the association for eight years, and his contributions were enormous and essential to the value that AAMA offers to its members, according to officials.
“Ken's hard work, commitment and dedication were recognized by AAMA members and other industry associations alike. His retirement is a loss to AAMA and the industry, yet also a well-deserved change of pace for him,” officials said.
In Brenden’s absence, Joint Document Management Group activities related to the NAFS document will be handled by Andrea Rhodes, technical services manager, who has participated in the JDMG for several years. “Andrea's strong knowledge of the document process will make the transition of this responsibility seamless,” officials said.
Maureen Knight, government affairs/product stewardship manager, will serve as liaison for the association's national and regional code consultants. “Maureen's knowledge of regulatory issues and codes for our industry will help in ensuring a truly successful partner for our knowledgeable industry code consultants,” officials said.
