AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – (June 20, 2007) – Guardian Industries Corp. has announced the appointment of attorney David Jaffe as its General Counsel, responsible for all worldwide legal matters. He also was named Secretary of the corporation.

Jaffe joined Guardian in 1990 and has held a variety of legal positions over the past 17 years. He lived and worked in Luxembourg and served as General Counsel of Guardian Europe, S.A.

Throughout his Guardian career, Jaffe has been closely associated with Guardian's corporate and international development activities including negotiating and providing continuous legal advice for the company's joint ventures around the world.
