The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) has hired Fred Chuck as its new Geosynthetic Materials Association (GMA) executive director.

Chuck has over 38 years of geosynthetics industry experience and recently served as the chairman of the GMA executive council.

‘Fred has served GMA for many years in numerous roles, and distinguished himself in each one,’ said Bryan Gee, director of education and training at Tensar Corp who will become chairman of the executive council, succeeding Mr. Chuck. ‘His broad industry knowledge and dedication to advancing the geosynthetics industry make him an ideal fit for his new role.’
