Top 50 Glazier Gamma Curtain Wall, a division of Far East Global Group Ltd., has united its two separate organizations, Gamma USA and Gamma Windows and Walls International Inc., under the name Gamma North America. The change reflects a seamless, one-unit, continental operating strategy, according to company officials.

To lead and implement this strategy, Jim Mitchell has been promoted to president of Gamma North America. Former president of Gamma's Canadian operations, Mitchell has more than 30 years of industry experience. Elliot Kracko will remain as chairman and continue to focus on business development, customer relationships and strategic planning.

Matthew Baum is now head of Gamma’s U.S. field operations. Baum is a long-time Gamma partner, member of Gamma’s top management and a recognized industry leader in field operations and installation, company officials report.

“The evolution today into a single North American-wide operating unit reflects our very strong marketplace performance in the U.S. and Canada in 2013,” said Kracko, in a release. “It enables us to further strengthen Gamma’s distinctive service hallmark for customers."
