Tom Feeney, Safelite® President and CEO

At Safelite, we look for employees who demonstrate integrity, commitment, teaming, expertise and a drive for extraordinary results. We believe these individuals help deliver an exceptional customer experience. And we believe our service men and women demonstrate these traits. That’s why our Safelite in the Service series shines a spotlight on our employees who have or are currently serving in the military. We appreciate all you do.

Today’s spotlight is:

Doug Koester, Area Sales Manager
St. Louis, La.


Years at Safelite: 7 months

Branch: U.S. Marine Corps

Years of Service: 4

Locations: Japan | Italy | France | Beirut | Portugal

The United States Marine Corps is our nation’s first line of defense, our expeditionary force in readiness in a time of Crisis. The Marine Corps builds quality citizens, leaders, warriors, Marines – those that remain faithful to the mission, each other, the Corps, and our country – Semper Fidelis.

Doug knew the Marine Corps challenged individuals mentally and physically, building leaders who contributed to the reputation of the “First to Fight” – the defenders of our country.

Doug joined the Marine Corps in 1984. He was placed in the Motor Transport Division, managing fleet readiness. He focused on operational excellence, procurement, and safety throughout his career as a Marine.

“Being a Marine is a mindset and a lifestyle,” he said.

The values Doug embraced as a Marine carry to his position as an Area Sales Manager here at Safelite as well as a citizen of the United States.

“The importance of teamwork and support from those of all ranks was paramount,” he said.

As a dedicated leader here, Doug brings nothing shy of excellence to the table, motivating those around him to excel just as he does.

Thank you, Doug, for your service!
