PPG Auto Glass vice president of operations Glen Hartman has retired from the
company on January 31, 2005 after 35 years with the glass manufacturer.
"Glen was well-known and well-respected for his technical knowledge and
expertise. He will be missed by many throughout PPG Industries," said Marc
Talbert, president of PPG Auto Glass in a news release issued February 3.
Hartman, 55, started with PPG at a branch in San Antonio in 1971 and became
branch manager in Harlingen, Texas, in 1975. Six years later he moved to Philadelphia
to serve as the area manager for Northeastern States for the company's Commercial
Construction Group and in 1990 returned to Texas as a regional sales manager for
the southwest. In 1995 he assumed the role of director of sales and distribution
of the Automotive Replacement Glass (ARG) division West, a position he maintained
until being named senior vice president of the central region of PPG Auto Glass
upon its formation in 2000.
In June 2004 he was named vice president of operations for the Auto Glass Division.
