Glass.com is the handiwork of Lyle Hill and Debra Levy, who together combine glass industry know-how with glass information and media services. Lyle is a 40-year veteran of the glass and metal industry who has managed glass retail, contract glazing, mirror, architectural windows, window film and automotive glass businesses throughout the United States. He holds an MBA from IIT with a concentration in Technology and Engineering Management. A noted author and columnist, Hill is often called the “face” of the architectural glass industry in North America. Lyle has led glass installation all over the United States. He is also the author of “The Broken Tomato and Other Business Parables”, a book available on Amazon.com.
Debra Levy is the owner of Key Communications Inc., a full service media company that specializes in glass industry information and data. Deb’s company produces six industry related print and digital publications (USGlass magazine, Door & Window Market magazine, Architect’s Guide to Glass magazine, Auto Glass Repair & Replacement (AGRR), Auto Glass Journal and Window Film magazines), four daily e-newsletters and three weekly ones, runs several industry trade shows and publishes books and technical papers related to glass. She holds a Masters in Science with a concentration in Community Economics from Southern New Hampshire University. Deb also sits on a variety of industry committees including the ANSI Z 97 Safety Glazing Committee, The Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standards Committee and the Automotive Glass Replacement Safety Standards Committee among others.
