British Glass CEO Dave Dalton has joined the Glass Futures’ Board.

Dave is passionate about building the future of glass through serious academic application, close partnership with industry, and a total commitment to skilling its personnel.

An acute political observer, he was a key driver in the foundation of Glass Futures.

He has worked in the sector for more than 35 years, originally in R&D and over the past decade as the political lead for the glass manufacturing sector in the UK.

He is a passionate advocate of technology and innovation and works closely with BEIS driving the Industrial Strategy agenda.

As CEO of the British Glass Manufacturers’ Confederation, he leads the representation of the UK glass industry in the political arena through the trade association members, and also sits on numerous committees, working groups, boards and review panels at both UK and EU level.

Richard Katz, Chief Executive at Glass Futures said, “Dave was instrumental in Glass Futures’ conception, and I am thrilled to welcome him to our Board as he brings a breadth of experience in glass technology and R&D.”

Dave Dalton said, "It's great to get back on board with Glass Futures as the global industry begins to engage and with 2022 being designated the United Nations international Year of Glass, I'm sure we can do fantastic things for both glass and society: I really look forward to being part of it"

Dave is also CEO of British Glass’ technology arm, Glass Technology Services (GTS).
