The Association recognizes a member with this award each year as one who excels in work toward improving the Association and the Glass Products Council. Awards were presented by the previous year’s winners, who recognized recipients for their many efforts toward progressing the work of the Association and the industry overall.
“Bill can see what others enjoy and care about, even if he doesn’t totally appreciate that thing himself,” said Sanders. “This characteristic is evident in his engineering, industry committee work and equipment design. He carefully listens to input from customers and industry associates. Then, he considers this input and includes requests whenever possible.”
For years, Briese has been a presenter at the annual IG Fabricators Workshop, where he shows demonstrations of glass cutting and washing.
Briese’s impact on the industry is especially visible in the area of education. For years, he has been a presenter at the annual IG Fabricators Workshop, where he shows demonstrations of glass cutting and washing. His prominent roles within the Association include serving as Chair of the IG Fabricator Workshop/Preventing IG Failures Task Group and GPC Co-Chair of the Education Steering Committee.
