Glass Doctor recently named two Rookies of the Year. The U.S. award went to Justin Eimers of the Glass Doctor of Sioux Falls franchise In addition, Glass Doctor honored Joe and Wendy Barrieau of the Glass Doctor of Kawartha Lakes franchise with the 2009 Canadian Rookie of the Year Award. Both awards were given during the company's 2010 Annual Reunion Conference in San Antonio.

The Rookie of the Year Award is given to Glass Doctor franchisees who demonstrate outstanding performance in sales and building their franchises during their first full year of operation.

Eimers started Glass Doctor of Sioux Falls in February 2008 and also was among the top 10 percent of franchisees who earned the Top Gun designation, which recognizes outstanding sales, manpower growth, personal growth and franchise development for the prior calendar year.

Wendy Barrieau of Glass Doctor of Kawartha Lakes accepts the first Canadian Rookie of the Year Award from (left to right) Glass Doctor president Mark Dawson, vice president of operations Mark Liston and vice president of franchise relations and training Dan Mock.

"Justin Eimers is a great example of an overwhelmed self-employed auto glass technician who made the successful jump to owning his own business," says Mark Dawson, president of Glass Doctor. "Justin realized he had to work on his business, not in his business, and it has made a huge difference.Despite an economic recession for the past two years, Justin opened his first shop and then outgrew it and opened a second shop. That growth is a tribute to Justin's great work ethic and the outstanding performance of his team."

The Barrieaus opened the first Glass Doctor franchise in Canada in January 2009.

"Joe and Wendy Barrieau have such a great spirit in them, to rise to the challenge of being pioneers by adding a full-service glass franchise to their successful auto body business," says Dawson. "We are extremely proud of their achievements in such a relatively short amount of time. We have added 10 more franchise owners in Canada, and we can confidently point them to Glass Doctor of Kawartha Lakes as the example of what the Glass Doctor system should look like."
