demonstrated to ensure Guardian’s leading position in its
industries,” said Croskey. “My years with the company  — combined with
our strength in manufacturing, technology and people  — will help carry
out Guardian’s strategy and vision.”

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, ultimately responsible for the
company’s West Coast operations, including float and fabrication


In 1988 he was named the company’s Employee of the Year.

Before joining Guardian, Croskey worked for General Motors Corporation.

Croskey received a bachelor of science in industrial engineering from
General Motors Institute (now Kettering University) in Flint, Mi., and a juris
doctorate from the University of Detroit School of Law. He has been a
member of the State Bar of Michigan since 1978.
