“I am excited to start a new challenge with Service Group Distribution USA and look forward to working with Sarah Ortiz and the team to further develop their already extensive product and service lines,” says Austin. “I am very fortunate to be joining such a respected company that prides itself on top quality service.”

Sarah Ortiz, director of business development says, “Dick’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge has already made him a key addition to the Service Group Distribution family … Our new expanded high-end product lines and the increasing demand from our customers led us to look for an addition to our team who will fit in with our mission and our goals for exceptional service, and it is very fortunate that we were able to find someone of Dick’s caliber to fulfill this role. I’m confident that Dick will play a key role in providing and implementing high quality solutions for our dealers.”

Austin will also be taking Ortiz’s place on the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ show floor for the company’s security film demonstration, as Ortiz is out on medical leave.
