Glass America to Co-Sponsor Auto Glass Week™ Keynote Speakers
July 11, 2011

Noted auto glass retailer chain Glass America will co-sponsor Auto Glass Week™ keynote speakers Mike Eruzione, the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team Captain, and Lauren Fix, the Car Coach®, during this year’s Auto Glass Week in Memphis, Tenn. The event will be held September 15-17 at the Memphis Cook Convention Center and Memphis Marriott Downtown.

Eruzione, who led the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team to its improbable Gold Medal victory in Lake Placid, N.Y., will speak on teamwork and the necessary steps to be successful. Fix, who is a nationally recognized automotive expert in car care, repair, safety issues, buying and selling new and used cars and trucks, and driving skills and served as car care expert on the Oprah Show for many years, will speak on customers and how companies are viewed by its clients, especially women.

“Glass America is honored to participate in Auto Glass Week,” says David Rohlfing, president and CEO of Glass America Inc. and Auto Glass Service. “I’ve been working in the auto glass repair and replacement industry for 39 years, and there has never been an event like this one. This is an opportunity for all of the organizations within our industry to truly come together and further our shared mission. It’s a chance to give back to the AGRR industry for the many opportunities that we have been given over the years.

He adds, “These sponsorships will promote the connection and communication among attendees, and, of course, consumers and drivers.”

“Sponsorship of Auto Glass Week demonstrates a commitment to the future of the auto glass industry,” says event director Holly Biller. “We appreciate Glass America’s generosity in helping to support these key speakers.”

Auto Glass Week will bring together all of the major auto glass groups, including the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards Council (AGRSS), Independent Glass Association (IGA), National Glass Association (NGA), and the National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA), along with AGRR™ magazine’s Pilkington Clear Advantage Auto Glass Technician Olympics and Walt Gorman Memorial Windshield Repair Olympics. The International Window Film Tint-Off and Conference™ also will be held concurrently. The event is managed by AGRR magazine.
