WACO, Texas (Sept. 19, 2013) – Glass Doctor has hired Thomas “Tommy” Patterson as their newest Sure Start Coordinator. Patterson will bring a vast amount of industry experience to the Glass Doctor Franchise.
“I believe I have found a home here that promotes the values and moral beliefs that have so long been set aside and it is refreshing to know they still exist,” said Thomas Patterson. “I believe Glass Doctor has the core values necessary to continue their growth and I fully expect the company to be viewed as the yardstick by which others measure their success.”
Most recently, Patterson was the Market Manager for the Mygrant Glass Company where he developed and built their market share.
Patterson has also worked as the Senior Sales Manager for Pilkington North America where he oversaw the market development of the company.
“We here at Glass Doctor are excited to have Tommy on board. Tommy is a great asset to the Glass Doctor Franchise,” said Mark Liston, president of Glass Doctor. “We know that he brings a lot of knowledge of the glass industry as a whole with him and he will allow new Glass Doctor franchises to grow quickly. In addition to his duties, we are confident that he will work closely with Frank Levesque, our Technical Manager, and serve as a back-up for him.”
Patterson received an Associate of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Pennsylvania State University and a two-year certification in heating ventilation and air conditioning from Beaver County Vocational Technical School.
