What's Happening at Diamond Glass Company?
glassBYTEs.com has confirmed that Diamond Glass Companies chief executive officer
Doug Boyle and president Karen Christopher won't be at the helm
of Diamond Auto Glass in the near future. The two were relieved
of their daily duties yesterday. Whether each has been placed on
a leave of absence or are leaving the company has not been confirmed.
An initial report that Rich Wooditch was also leaving has been corrected
by the company, which issued a statement this afternoon saying that
he is still employed there. Also, not confirmed, but likely, is
the return of Norm Harris and Ken Levine.
No one has been talking about the reasons why Christopher and Boyle
have been relieved of their duties yet. In the last few months,
the company has changed its name, announced its expansion into the
flat glass business, instituted a fuel surchange and started safety
and quality control problems. Boyle and Christopher had both been
extremely accessible to the media of late, even appearing on the
cover of AGRR's July-August issue. The company was expected to issue
a statement at noon today but instead issued a two line correction
about Wooditch early this afternoon.
