“Smart companies recognize the harmony between the employee and the customer. When you take care of one, you take care of the other. At PEER Chain we take care of both with equal measure — because this is how lasting relationships work. And relationships are our passion.”
For 27 years, Glenn was Vice President of Sales & Operations at Peer Bearing Company. In 2012, Glenn became President of PEER Chain. He is a graduate of the Kelley School of Business at the University of Indiana. Glenn believes in transparent leadership and treating others — employees and customers alike — the way he would like to be treated. He also believes in making PEER Chain the definitive chain solution for the customer — both in terms of product availability and customer support. Happily married since 1991, Glenn and his wife have three wonderful children, and in his spare time, he enjoys Chicago Blackhawks hockey, travel, cycling, golf, and attending classic rock concerts.

“Creativity in business is a game changer and a differentiator, whether you’re selling cars, cheese, or chain!”
Danny Spungen is power transmission! It’s in his DNA.

Danny has a very big vision of “family.”
Vice President of Strategic Alliances
“Family, family, family. What else is there to say?”
What do you say about a guy who has been in the bearing and power transmission business for over 40 years? Yes, besides being a little crazy! But here’s the thing. Chuck loves selling chain, and he loves working at PEER Chain. Why? Because chain is a technical product, and he enjoys the science of it. And PEER Chain is like a family — a family with principals, who have principles, personality, and character. Moreover, PEER Chain is dedicated to seeing its customers succeed as well as its industry grow. When Chuck isn’t moving chain, he’s attending his grandsons’ baseball, soccer and hockey games, reading, taking walks with his wife, Linda, who he has been with just as long as he’s been in this business. Oh, and here’s something else pretty cool about Chuck. Now a retired Colonel, Chuck served his country for 35 years in the Army Reserve, where he learned that people are and always will be our greatest asset.
Vice President of Product, Solutions & Experiences
“Treat others with kindness and respect, the rest will take care of itself.”
A consummate people person, Jeremy finds the work he does with his PEER Chain customers incredibly rewarding. Being able to solve challenges for the PEER Chain customer is something that gets Jeremy out of bed each morning, and he loves the culture and network of talented individuals with whom he works. Jeremy joined PEER Chain in 1997 as a Regional Sales Manager. He was then VP of Sales before assuming his current role of Product Manager. When he isn’t solving power transmission conundrums, Jeremy is all about his family. He and his wife have two teenagers who together love to travel, especially to Disney World. He also enjoys classic muscle cars and the great outdoors.

And perhaps a dram of scotch occasionally.
Power Transmission Product Manager
“Exceeding customers’ expectations is a home run in the World Series of Life.”
Most people wouldn’t use the word “passion” when describing power transmission products, but that’s exactly what you get with Art. Interacting with PEER Chain customers is what keeps him coming to work every day. Art joined PEER Chain in 1996 and held a number of positions from Regional Sales Manager to VP-Strategic Sales. After taking a short hiatus in 2012 to pursue an MBA, he returned to PEER Chain in 2015 to assume his current role of Power Transmission Product Manager. When he isn’t solving power transmission conundrums, Art is all about family and enjoying every moment he gets with his son, Arthur Jr. He also is a huge sports fan, following baseball, football and hockey, but he truly bleeds Cubby Blue.
Manager of Engineering & Quality
“Delivering nothing less than precision to the PEER Chain customer is off the table.”
A more befitting title could not be given to Eric, unless it was too also include something about his strength of character. Engineering and quality is what Eric lives, breathes, and embodies day in and day out. Since coming to PEER Chain in 2010, he has thrived in his role because of his intellect, dedication, and motivation. Eric loves the family-owned business environment and leadership at PEER Chain, and finds it to be the perfect platform for exercising his knowledge and experience of the power transmission industry. Eric holds a B.S. in Material Science, an M.S. in Chemical Engineering, and another M.S. in Computer Science. And if that weren’t enough, he also is a Certified Professional for Supply Management (CPSM). When he isn’t developing precision chain solutions for our customers, Eric enjoys time with his wife and teenage son, as well as music and sports.
