Minnesota Harmon Auto Glass Under New Local Ownership

Minneapolis-based Harmon AutoGlass has announced today that it has named a new management and executive team to lead its independent glass retail chain, which it says is the largest in Minnesota with 23 retail stores.

Scott Leiferman recently returned to the state to purchase and manage Harmon AutoGlass. As its new President and Owner, Leiferman says he will transition the company to continue to leverage Harmon AutoGlass as an industry leader in auto, home and business glass repair and replacement.

While Harmon has been known in Minnesota for auto glass services, it will also focus on building up a lesser known segment of its portfolio: home and business glass repair and replacement, which includes windows, mirrors, tabletops and more.

Leiferman's vision for Harmon focuses on returning to the core elements of the business and planning for the company's growth by renovating and upgrading retail stores, installing a new call center and improving upon existing operations, updating information technology (IT) structures and installing a new Point of Sale system at Harmon retail locations.

"We are excited that the Harmon name is staying in Minnesota," said Leiferman, president and owner of Harmon AutoGlass. "We are returning to our roots and continuing to offer customers the highest levels of service that they have come to know and expect."

Additionally, Jerry Jensen has been named vice president of sales and Tom Wolf has been named operations manager. John Redmond has also been named controller. Both Jensen and Wolf have worked for Harmon for a combined thirty years and have been promoted to these new positions. Redmond joined Harmon AutoGlass in late March from a previous position with Nash Finch Company in Minneapolis.
