Jake Glaser named 2020 YFP President

We are so proud that our own, Jake Glaser, has been announced as the 2020 Young Fastener Professionals President.

As a Regional Sales Manager at Sherex Fastening Solutions, Jake is focused on helping clients improve their products through fastening innovations. He has worked at Sherex since 2014, working his way from inside sales to outside sales and becoming an important influence at the company.

While working at Sherex, Jake’s dedication to the fastening industry has only grew, becoming a member of YFP in 2019, culminating with his appointment as the president of the Young Fastener Professionals this year.

“We are very proud of Jake,” said Sherex president Adam Pratt. “He’s learned and grown so much over the last six  years and he’s earned this leadership role at YFP.”

“I’m very excited,” Jake said. “YFP is great organization and a great way to get involved in the fastener industry.”

The Young Fastener Professionals is an organization “that provides empowerment and career development by providing resources and support to future leaders,” according to its website.

Professional development, celebrating success, networking events, and collaboration are some of the YFP’s core competencies and Jake hopes to continue to spread the word about the positive impact YFP can have.

“We want to continue to build and grow, and play a bigger role in not only influencing young people in the fastener industry, but in the fastener industry in general.” Jake said.
