Russell J. Ebeid Passes Away

Former president of Guardian Glass Group Russell J. Ebeid, passed away at age 77 on Sunday, July 30.

During his tenure with Guardian Industries he worked at all ranks – from maintenance to plant engineering, production manager, plant manager and group vice president – before being named president of the Glass Group worldwide.

Ebeid joined Guardian in May of 1970 during the construction of its first float glass facility in Carleton, Mich.  After several engineering and manufacturing assignments, he was named plant manager of the Kingsburg, Calif., facility where he was eventually honored as Guardian’s Employee of the Year in 1979.

When Guardian expanded into Europe in 1981, Ebeid’s responsibilities were broadened and he was named a group vice president. Shortly after Guardian became a private company in 1985, Ebeid was named to the board of directors and assumed the presidency of the Glass Group. He also served as chairman of the board of Guardian Europe S.A. and director of Guardian Japan. During his time with Guardian he was responsible for the worldwide glass sales, marketing and manufacturing activities on five continents. He retired in 2011.

Before joining Guardian, Ebeid spent seven years at General Motors Corp. where he served in a variety of engineering assignments as a senior mechanical engineer.
