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.

My experiences and the good years the glazing industry has provided me and my family are what compel me to take on the challenges and successes of being a part of the Southern California Glass Management Association. It provides me with the platform to give back to our industry.
Our goal is to serve contractors’ needs through advocacy, forward thinking strategies, and innovation. It is the dedication and enthusiasm of contractors that will help drive this organization and provide the success to our strategies. We need to work as a team to set the standards for the industry, to mentor our future leaders, and to advocate in one collective voice.
I look forward to working with you all as we continue building Southern California Glass Management Association to be an organization that gives back to our members’ businesses and the industry.
