May 14, 2010

Safelite AutoGlass has been named a finalist in the customer service department of the year category in The 2010 American Business Awards. According to a release from the company, its executive services department achieved consistently high average scores during more than five weeks of preliminary judging and will be awarded a certificate of finalist recognition along with five other companies in the same category.

"We are thrilled to be a finalist in the 2010 American Business Awards," says Tom Feeney, president and CEO of Safelite. "Our executive services department works extremely hard to support our goal of 100 percent customer delight, and their contributions are a strong component to the success of our company. This is a stellar achievement and I'd like to congratulate each member of the team."

This year's Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 21, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

In addition, Safelite has announced that more than 230 of its employees will be participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Columbus, Ohio, on May 15. As a gold-level sponsor, the Safelite Charitable Foundation donated $25,000 to the cause.

In addition to the corporate donation, Safelite employees have raised additional funds through events such as a bake sale, 50/50 raffle and pre-race tailgate party taking place on May 14. These events, which created awareness for the cause, raised $1,755. Combined with the funds raised by race participants and friends and family, this brings the total of Team Safelite's donation to $5,285.
