MGA Honors Kritta
The Minnesota Glass Association (MGA) recently honored PPG Auto Glass's market manager, Jeff Kritta, with its "Glass Dealer of the Year" award. According to PPG, Kritta was recognized for his service to the association as treasurer for the past six years and his work in developing continuing education programs for the association's members.

Kritta has been with PPG Auto Glass since its inception in August 2000, when PPG's auto glass distribution business merged with Apogee. Previously, he had been employed as a market manager for Apogee.

"The fact that Jeff, as a representative of a glass supplier, was selected as "Glass Dealer of the Year" by an association of primarily retail glass shops speaks volumes about him," said Wiz Wyatt, senior vice president, North region, for PPG Auto Glass. "Jeff is smart, hard-working and a wonder representative for PPG Auto Glass."
