The Marketing Committee will be chaired by Christine Shaffer, the marketing manager at Viracon. Her responsibilities at Viracon include overseeing the public relations and communications department as well as performing brand management, advertising, market research and analysis for Viracon and its products. She also directs the company’s outside marketing agencies.

“It’s an honor to help further the valuable services GANA provides to all of us in the glass industry,” said Shaffer. “The committee will focus on ways to promote GANA as a whole along with synergistically promoting each division.”

Shaffer began working in the glass industry 18 years ago as a member of the customer service team at Viracon. She then worked as a supervisor of the international sales department prior to becoming the product manager for Viracon’s protective glazing/security glazing products. Shaffer assumed the responsibility for Viracon’s marketing activities in 2000.

She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing and management. Shaffer is an active participant in the glass industry. She has participated in activities with the Glass Association of North America (GANA), Protective Glazing Council, the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM), and SafeAmerica.
