Belron US (formerly Safelite Auto Glass) released a number of key employees last week, including two senior staffers, several members of its field force and several district sales managers, according to a source familiar with the company. The two senior employees that have been released are Rod Ghani, vice president of information technology, and Rahmat Taghvai, who worked in the company's accounting/analysis departments and assisted with the establishment of client pricing.

Belron US also told a number of employees that no bonuses will be offered this year, due to "challenging circumstances" and "declining revenues, according to the source, who wished to remain unnamed for fear of reprisal.

Belron US spokesperson Jenny Cain declined to comment, but did cite the pressures of the economic downturn.

"We do not comment on the specifics of internal human resources initiatives," she says. "Like all companies, we have been affected by this economic downturn. However, it is part of our company’s operating culture to continually monitor our expenses in relation to our revenue and make the necessary adjustments to ensure that we are a thriving organization that meets its financial goals and generates profitable growth."

At press time, attempts to reach Ghani had been unsuccessful, and magazine had not yet located a phone number for Taghvai at press time.
