September 06, 2012 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas – Bradley Voreis has been named Vice President of Glass Doctor, following the recent resignation of Douglas Dotson.
“I am honored to accept this position and feel very confident in addressing the challenges that come with being the Vice President of Operations,” Voreis said. “Moreover, it is also a good feeling to know that I will be supported by great team members who also feel a strong obligation and commitment to serve the franchise organization to the highest level.”
Voreis has been in the role of Franchise Consultant at Glass Doctor for more than 30 franchisees across the U.S. the past year. Prior to working with the corporate office, Voreis worked as Chief Financial Officer and Operations Manager at the Glass Doctor of North Texas franchise, owned by Larry Patterson. He has a degree in Economics from Denison University. While at Denison, Voreis swam competitively and earned NCAA honors as an All-American and National Champion.
“Over the past year working as a Franchise Consultant for The Dwyer Group coupled with my previous five years working in a Glass Doctor franchise, I have gained the experience necessary to run a successful and profitable operation,” Voreis said.
Dotson, who left in order to commit full-time to the family business, the Glass Doctor – Heart of Texas franchise located in Waco, Texas, has been a part of the Glass Doctor team for more than 11 years.
“Doug did a fabulous job for us, but we’re excited to see what Brad will accomplish in his new role,” Glass Doctor President Mark Liston said. “Many of Brad’s franchisees over the past year have commented on how helpful he was with their business. Those five years working with Larry Patterson gave him a great understanding of our business and what it takes to grow a successful franchise.”
