Belron US Promotes McClain and Poderys

Belron US has promoted Shawn McClain to group warehouse manager and Eric Poderys to general manager.

McClain previously worked as general manager in Columbus, Ohio, where the company is based. His career with Belron US began through the company's Leadership Development Series, a program offered by Belron US to prepare managers for their new roles with the company. In his new position as group warehouse manager, McClain will be focused on adding four new warehouses to the company's operations in the northeastern part of the country. McClain also will assume operational responsibility for a to-be-determined number of warehouses in the northeast.

A seven-year veteran of the military, McClain worked for five years as a district manager in asset protection for Home Depot. He has a bachelor's degree in sociology from Ohio State University and a master's degree in business from the University of Phoenix.

In Poderys' new role as general manager, he will be responsible for day-to-day operations of 58 employees and for growing sales and market share in an area that includes three locations throughout the Central Ohio area.

Poderys began working for Safelite as a store manager in Columbus in 1990 and then left the company to work for Diamond Triumph Glass. When Belron US acquired Diamond Glass earlier this year, Poderys became an area operations manager.

Poderys has a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania.
