First AGTO Olympic Gold Medalist Wins Another Competition
Jeff Olive of Glasspro Inc. in Mount Pleasant, S.C., was named the 2008 American Master Auto Glass Installer during a competition held in Las Vegas over the last two days. Randy Layton of Go-Glass in Bridgeville, Del., took second place. Seven pre-selected entrants competed.
Olive won $5,000 and a trip to Dusseldorf, Germany, where he will compete in the International Master Fitter Competition held in conjunction with glasstec, October 21-25. Olive will then return to judge the big one--the Fourth Annual Auto Glass Technician Olympics (AGTO)--to be held Nov 7-8 in conjunction with the NACE Expo in Las Vegas. First prize is $10,000 in cash. Olive also was the winner of the first AGTO in 2005.
The AGTO is co-sponsored by AGRR magazine and the Independent Glass Association.
