Southern California Glass Management Association Names Deveney Pula as New Executive Director

The SCGMA Board of Directors continues to advance the organization’s goals to provide additional value. In doing so, we are extremely pleased to announce that we have unanimously selected Deveney Pula to assume the position of Executive Director while Jeannie Simpelo transitions to a full time role with our partners – Northern California Glass Management Association (NCGMA) and Northern California Allied Trades (NCAT).

Pula began her journey with SCGMA in 2013 as the Director of Business Development, launching and grooming our strategic marketing program to be a great success. Her fresh perspective, in conjunction with her commitment to continual learning in the field, has allowed her to execute innovative strategies to address the many problems facing our contractors and industry.

While Pula continues her journey with the association in a more involved role, Jeannie Simpelo will remain a solid influential leader as SCGMA maintains a strong, collaborative relationship with NCGMA and NCAT. This evolving dynamic provides some exciting possibilities of advancing our association partnerships to better serve union contractors state-wide.

We very much look forward to Pula’s new role in helping our association grow and bringing our members what they need to succeed.

If you have any questions, please contact us at We appreciate your support and look forward to an exciting year!

From Our Members

The SCGMA has been beneficial to our company in staying up to date with changes happening in our industry and with our union. The association has held seminars and contractor summits that add value to our organization and leadership training. The SCGMA is also a very valuable link to many other California construction organizations and gives us access to those resources when needed. We look forward to continuing our involvement and membership with SCGMA.

I would say that one of the greatest benefits that Giroux receives as a member of the SCGMA is that we are kept informed of industry changes , both current and what's coming down the pipeline. This was evident in the most recent contract negotiations with the union as it helped to know what was happening in other negotiations. The SCGMA provides an avenue for help if we are experiencing problems with labor issues or any type of legislation that might be impacting a particular job or the industry as a whole.
