From 1983 to 1998, Mr. Rex Altree had been a high earning sales manager with several national companies serving well-known customers such as Motorola, AJ's Fine Foods, and the NFLs Arizona Cardinals. He had been up the corporate ladder and wanted to be in business for himself. Rex's background uiquely qualified him to understand both the process of sales and the business of a consumer-based service industry. After several months of working with a small local glass shop in sales and operations, Rex launched a sole proprietorship in May of 1999. The new operation took take a decidedly different approach to the auto glass business with much greater responsiveness to customers' lifestyles and buying habits. Until late1999, Rex explored a variety of sales venues and delivery techniques sensitive to consumer activity, and as a result began to enjoy a significant increase in business
In March of 2000, Rex and his wife Debbie, formed an LLC and named the newly launched entity New Image Auto Glass®, LLC. The moniker was intended to let everyone from employees to customers know that this was going to be a different approach to the glass business. Rex led the organization as CEO fashioning departmental responsibilities,generating important community contacts, and providing overall management. Debbie Altree, drawing on her twenty years with IBM's sales support department, gave oversight to the administration and processing activities. Throughout this second year New Image capitalized on ground gained and paid careful attention to the inevitable mistakes made.Personnel with exceptional performance records were hired to fill critical slots in sales, service, installation, and processing. In early 2001, Rex recognized the need to formalize the procedures and policies that guided New Image's daily activities. Expertise was sought in accounting, financial reporting, and human resources.
