St. Paul, MN – NOVUS Glass is proud to welcome new franchisees Trent and Kari Alberts. The Alberts will be bringing NOVUS’ high standard of quality automotive glass service to the Des Moines, Iowa area. ‘We are determined to continue our focus on growing and strengthening the NOVUS franchise network worldwide in 2017,’ stated Rick Christiaanse – Chief Commercial Officer VP of Operations, TCGI. ‘We are excited to have Trent and Kari join our team and we know that they will do an outstanding job representing NOVUS in the central Iowa market.’
Working with glass is not new for Trent. For over 17 years Trent worked for Pella windows, from installing sashes into window frames to his most recent role of HR Compensation Manager. He enjoyed working at Pella, but was ready to move on to a new phase in his live. Witnessing the success his brother and sister-in-law had achieved in their own businesses Trent wanted to try starting a business of his own. ‘My wife Kari has been extremely supportive, encouraging me to go after what I love to do,’ shared Trent. ‘The timing was right, and working with NOVUS has been a green light the whole way!’
After researching in depth about every type of business Trent could possibly own, he concluded that NOVUS had the proven game plan of building a successful business. ‘Once I made the decision to pursue operating a business of my own, I’m pretty sure I researched every type of business, and I thought through every scenario,’ stated Trent. ‘NOVUS was the clear leader of any business I could imagine owning/operating.’ Trent was pleasantly welcomed by the NOVUS team and appreciated their responsiveness and attention to detail. In the end it was NOVUS’ innovative products and services that led to Trent’s decision to start his own NOVUS franchise. As shared by Trent, ‘Ultimately, it was the NOVUS product, literally being the best automotive windshield repair product in the market that made me thrilled to put my name alongside the NOVUS Glass brand.’
