Safelite Group Announces Senior Leadership Promotions

The Columbus, Ohio-based Safelite Group has announced several promotions within its ranks. The promotions, which include the newly created positions of senior vice president of manufacturing and fulfillment and chief client officer, follow the company's announcement of a new corporate structure and the appointment of Dan H. Wilson as president and chief executive officer in late 2003.

"The timing of these two events provided an excellent opportunity for us to better align our senior leadership team with the new Safelite Group family of companies," said Wilson. "We have been able to offer new opportunities to a number of our top performers, many of whom have been with Safelite for years and have, literally, come up through the ranks."

His new responsibilities include overseeing the manufacturing, distribution and retail auto glass service operations.
