A Guardian Industries senior management team met recently to implement the provisions of the transition plan set up in recent years by Guardian owner William (Bill) Davidson. This team had been individually selected by Davidson to make long-term management decisions for Guardian going forward. These senior Guardian leaders elected a five-member board of directors that includes Russell J. Ebeid, president, Guardian Glass Group; Duane Faulkner, president, Guardian Building Products Group; Robert Gorlin, vice president, Guardian Industries; Jeffrey Knight, chief financial officer, Guardian Industries; and Peter Walters, group vice president, Guardian Industries.

The new board elected Ebeid as its chairman and reaffirmed the appointment of the four presidents of Guardian's operating business groups: Ebeid; Faulkner; James Davis, president of Guardian Automotive Glass Group; and Kevin Baird, president of SRG Global, a Guardian company that manufactures automotive trim. The executives will continue to exercise day-to-day operational responsibilities in their respective groups, reporting to the board of directors, which has responsibility for setting overall direction and overseeing the ongoing operation of the company.
