Rich Glover, Safelite AutoGlass’ vice president of manufacturing and distribution, has received two company awards: a Wall of Fame award and the 5th annual “People Powered Leadership” award.
Glover oversees Safelite’s windshield manufacturing facility in Enfield, N.C., as well as two distribution centers in Ontario, Calif. and Braselton, Ga.
Safelite’s Wall of Fame is a peer-nominated award given to the company’s top performers. Extreme weather caused by the 2014 Polar Vortex created an “unprecedented need for vehicle glass replacements,” according to a statement from the company. In response to the demand, Glover added a third shift back at the Enfield plant to produce 20 percent additional units.
He earned the “People Powered Leadership” award by improving his employee engagement score from 72 percent to 87 percent.
Glover has worked for Safelite since 1997.
