Wanstrath Elected President of National Windshield Repair Association
October 20, 2010
Glass Technology president Kerry Wanstrath was elected president of the National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA) during a meeting of the association’s board of directors last week.
“I believe the NWRA is going to focus on promoting the successes of the association and lobbying on behalf of the small independent glass shops to allow them to utilize repair to their benefit and the consumer’s benefit,” Wanstrath told glassBYTEs.com™/AGRR magazine in an interview this week.
He also hopes to work more directly with the association’s membership.
“I would like to see us re-establish a credible line of communication with our root base of customers—small shops and small independents in the repair and replacement business,” he says. “[I want to] try to lobby on their behalf.”
One of the main concerns Wanstrath says he hears about from members involves insurance claims and he hopes the association can assist with this effort.
“They all have issues with handling insurance claims, whether it be the actual claim process or the actual phone conversation and directing of the assignment of the repair,” he says.
Wanstrath succeeds Mike Boyle of Glass Mechanix.
