After more than 40 years in the glass business, the last five years as Director of Architectural Services with Walker Glass, Steve Morren is announcing his retirement effective December 31st 2019.
Steve kicked off his career with PPG (formerly Canadian Pittsburg Ind.) in 1978 and then joined Walker from 1982 to 1989 as a Sales Representative. From there, he went on to Fulton Windows in various sales roles. In 1995, Steve was named President of Eastern Float Glass where he led the company’s growth for over 10 years. Prior to re-joining Walker in 2014, Steve held a leadership position as Vice President and GM with Triple Seal Ltd.
“Steve’s vast industry experience together with his reputation as an approachable, highly knowledgeable and trustworthy executive will be sorely missed here at Walker.” says Ross Christie, Vice President Sales & Marketing, who goes on to say, “over these last five years with Walker, Steve’s deep understanding of the glass fabrication and glazing businesses has helped us enormously to educate the architect community as well as our Architectural managers on how to best integrate our products into their designs. He really understands the glass business from A to Z.”
Steve will remain very active through to the end of 2019 mentoring Walker’s architectural team and working with architects, fabricators and glaziers on numerous Walker-specified projects, notably the company’s AviProtek line of bird friendly products.
Walker Glass is North America’s market leader in the development and manufacture of acid etched glass substrates and premium quality mirrors. In addition to its three AviProtek® lines of bird-friendly gazing solutions, the company’s Walker Textures® brand of interior and exterior glazing substrates includes the Traction® collection of anti-slip glass flooring surfaces, the Nuance® and Transition® families of decorative stock and custom etched patterns as well as a comprehensive line of full-surface etched finishes and opacities. Growing and evolving since 1942, Walker Glass proudly serves US and Canadian architectural glass fabricators from coast to coast, supported by the largest inventory of etched glass, acid-etched mirror and mirror on the continent.
