I’m a big believer in the Glass Doctor model and system and I look forward to working with our independent franchisees to continue our growth and position as the number one truly professional, full-service glass company in North America,” Gai said. “Having been a franchisee, it’s great to bring that experience and perspective to the table when working with the corporate team and franchisees to maximize the effectiveness of our proven system.”
Gai has been the Director of National Account Services for the past year. Before that, he owned the Glass Doctor of King & Pierce Counties franchise, the flagship shop in Seattle, Wash., for seven years. In those seven years, he grew the business from three mobile trucks to 18. Prior to that, Gai was President and CEO of A Sport, Inc., a cross-seasonal sporting goods company manufacturer and distributor. Prior to that, straight out of college, Gai was president and owner of Straight Line Watersports.
“This is a great role for Michael,” Glass Doctor President Mark Liston said. “Because of his tremendous success as a Glass Doctor franchisee, he truly understands what it takes. He is a not only a leader but also an inspiration for our franchisees who want to grow their businesses.”
