Taylor Bids Farewell to NWRA and Repair Industry with Sale of Cindy Rowe

The National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA) announced earlier this week that David Taylor, outgoing chief operating officer for Cindy Rowe Auto Glass, had resigned from its board of directors. Taylor, whose company has been purchased by Belron US, spoke with™/AGRR magazine in an exclusive interview this week.

"Windshield repair has been very important to our business, which was founded as a windshield repair business, and we have always been very interested in repair industry," Taylor said. " … We look forward to watching the new regime take us into the new century here."

Taylor, a seven-term NWRA president and founding member, noted that he doesn't intend to continue his involvement with the NWRA, as he feels those involved in such an association should be its stakeholders.

"I've always felt that trade associations … if you're on that board and you're there making decisions or are part of the decision-making process, you need to have skin in the game," he said. "It needs to be your pocketbook, your neck, and it won't be my pocketbook, it won't be my neck …"

The NWRA elected two new board members this week to fill Taylor's spot and two other openings. In addition, election of NWRA officers was scheduled for this week as well.
