Rick is Lerma’s field general. He oversees all installation crew activity on every project, including setup, scheduling and execution. He is expert in devising creative methods of installing all types of window films in challenging circumstances. And his calm demeanor under intense deadlines has impressed his many clients.
Like many window film installers, Rick got his start in the business tinting car windows in 1990 in his native Wichita Falls, Texas. Soon after he branched out into residential and commercial window film installation focusing on solar control and security window films.
Following the tragic events of 9/11, Rick’s expertise as a security window film installer placed him in high demand as the government and commercial sectors moved to secure the windows in their buildings. He soon became one of the country’s leading security window film installers.
By the mid-2000s, Rick began training other installers in various novel installation methods that he helped pioneer and are commonly used today. In particular, Rick is one of the country’s experts in the effective wet glaze attachment system that Lerma is known for.
Among Rick’s favorite projects is Lerma’s security window film installation work at the U.S. Capitol dome. Additionally, Rick was the lead installer on projects at St. Louis Lambert International Airport, the U.S. Institute of Peace, numerous FBI buildings, the World Financial Center in New York City and SeaTac International Airport.
While Rick is Lerma’s builder, Glenn is the company’s architect. He develops all new business and directs Lerma’s sales and marketing activities. Glenn deals directly with Lerma’s customers and helps coordinate project specifics with Rick Lerma and his installation crews.
After earning his bachelor’s degree in business, Glenn began his window film career – like Rick Lerma – as an auto window tinting specialist, starting his own business in his native Pittsburgh. That business evolved into U.S. Film Crew, a full-service window film company that installs window films of all types.
Glenn has developed a reputation in the window film installation industry as someone who can efficiently and effectively organize any project. Glenn’s philosophy in the window film installation business can be boiled down to two words – trust and confidence.
“I firmly believe the reason for our success has been our ability to gain our customers to trust we can handle any project and have confidence we will get it done right,” he says.
Over the years, Glenn’s high-energy personality and can-do attitude have fueled a number of entrepreneurial successes.
