Ebeid to Retire from Guardian this Year
April 13, 2011

Guardian Industries has confirmed that Russ Ebeid, president of Guardian Glass Group, will retire this September. Guardian has plans to announce a successor very soon.

Ebeid, who has been with Guardian since 1970, is well-known and well-respected in the glass industry.

“There is a book called 'The Legend of Guardian Industries' and Russ is truly one of those [a legend] in the glass industry--known throughout the industry and around the world,” says Earnest Thompson, Guardian marketing and brand management. “USGNN's glasstec video from last year between Lyle Hill and Russ is a classic in that regard.”

Ebeid will make an industry farewell address during Glass Performance Days in Tampere, Finland, June 17-20, 2011.
