Seth Glauberman has been named president of Barberton, OH-based Malco Products Inc. He succeeds his father, Stuart Glauberman, who has transferred from day-to-day management to an advisory position within the company after 32 years of leadership. Malco Automotive, a division of Malco Products, provides a comprehensive line of automotive detailing products and accessories.
Seth Glauberman started out in the Malco automotive division in 2004 and served 15 years as vice president of automotive sales. He graduated with a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and earned his MBA from Case Western Reserve University.
Stuart Glauberman said the company has been working toward succession for several years and is confident the time is ripe to turn over the reins to the next generation. “My goal over the next few years will be to support our new leadership and identify opportunities to strengthen our overall business.”
Stuart, a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, joined the company in 1973 and served as president for 32 years. He began planning two years ago to step down from the company’s leadership role in January 2020 as part of a succession plan. His new title is chief change agent, a reference to his longtime request asking every employee to be an agent of change.
Stuart’s Glauberman’s daughter, Lauren Osina, also works at the company and will continue as digital marketing manager. She earned a BA degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and has her Masters in Reading and Literacy from Ohio State University.
The company has been in the same family for four generations. Stuart Glauberman’s father, Murray Glauberman, who was a chemist, founded Malco Products Inc. in 1953 in Akron, later welcoming his father Abe and brother Lionel into the family business.
