Brad Glauser recently joined forces with Wausau Window & Wall Systems in April 2012. After receiving his education from University of Utah, and being the fourth generation to continue in the in construction industry, he followed his career path into construction management. Along the way he found his knack and love for the commercial glass industry.

He started by cutting his teeth between the Salt Lake City, Denver & Las Vegas markets as an estimator and field manager, his desire to grow lead him to the Northwest. Here, he's worked as a project manager for a national manufacture and glazing installer. This gave him the opportunity to work in various markets in the U.S.; from Virginia to Hawaii, Texas to Alaska, and Oklahoma to Northern California. This broad experience gave him a unique perspective of the required local, state & federal codes, building practices, and installation methods; especially when the Public Sector meets the Private Sector.

Since joining Wausau he has seen a lot of success in being an education source for the design and contracting community. He is passionate and very involved in the design and building community to assist in forwarding the progress and knowledge in further understanding commercial envelope glazing.
