Mike Russo, executive director of the Independent Glass Association (IGA), left his position at the end of April. I feel it“s time for me to go off and pursue other interests and those interests are outside the auto glass industry. I expected this to be a transition period. I didn“t expect the contract to be renewed, says Russo. I“ve been in the industry over 11 years and in my experience I think the focus needs to be placed on consumer harm. I believe the only way that the industry“s woes will be corrected is to involve the consumers. I“ve talked to government officials and legislators and they are fully aware of the interference that shops are experiencing, but they are not hearing a word from the consumers.
