Throughout her career, Glass has overseen large interdepartmental teams and led merchandising strategies through mergers, expansions, and crucial technology improvements. She has held senior leadership positions for seven years and used her role to initiate and lead professional development training, company culture shifts, and lean process improvements.
“I’m excited to be part of a company that is as passionate about their associates and the work we do as I am,” said Glass. “The culture of excellence is evident in the team and customer service they provide. I’m looking forward to engaging as a leader and growing with Huyett.”

In our selection process, we specifically look for servant leaders that not only build systems and processes, but more importantly, build culture and will develop talent. Candi checks all those boxes.”
