GDS' VP of Operations is Named as Sign Leader in ISA Elite 2018 Honors List

GDS, an architectural signage solutions company announced today, Chris Glanzman Vice President of Operations at GDS was tapped as Sign Industry Leader by the International Sign Association.

The International Sign Association established the ISA Elite Program with the mission of encouraging young professionals to step forward as leaders in the sign industry. Centering their efforts on individuals in the field, ISA studies and selects the most capable professionals to join the exclusive program. This year, following the review of 175 potential candidates, ISA selected only 36 industry leaders to join the ISA Elite Class of 2018.

"The selection for the ISA Elite program is extremely competitive, and each year the bar is raised," said Lori Anderson, ISA's president, and CEO. "Christopher and the rest of the 2018 ISA Elite are the future leaders in our industry and bring an enthusiasm about the sign, graphics and visual communications industry that is inspiring to be around."

"I believe in collaboration, and through the ISA Elite Program, I'll have the opportunity to join forces with 35 of my colleagues to achieve a greater understanding of advancing technology, new materials, and current research studies," said Glanzman.

"Chris Glanzman brings a fresh perspective to an industry that is constantly evolving," said GDS CEO and Founder, Joe Motta. "Chris was hired as a Creative Designer, but we recognized his strengths and quickly promoted him to Director of Operations for the New York Region within a year to Vice President of Operations."

Motta adds, "Chris truly is a 'triple threat' combining his design skills, project management, and operational expertise. His leadership skills have allowed GDS to grow its design services business exponentially over the last five years to become a healthcare industry leader."
