Guardian board names new chairman
Charles (Chuck) Croskey, an international executive with more than 40 years’ experience in the glass industry, has been named chairman of the board of directors for Guardian Industries. A board member since 2010, Croskey has been with the company since 1970, most recently as group vice president responsible for all of Guardian’s manufacturing, marketing and distribution operations throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East. His depth of knowledge in glass and manufacturing, as well as his critical leadership and management skills, have resulted in the company’s strong growth in his regions of responsibility, according to a Guardian release.
Croskey replaces outgoing chairman Peter Walters, who completed two terms as board chair. Walters remains a member of the board.
Croskey began his career at Guardian’s first float glass plant in Carleton, Mich., and went on to hold several posts at the company’s Kingsburg, Calif., float glass plant, where he was ultimately responsible for the company’s West Coast operations, including float and fabrication facilities.
Before joining Guardian, Croskey worked for General Motors Corp.
