LAUREL, Md. — Each year, the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI) Board of Directors brings on new members as other members retire or move into Executive Committee positions.
This August DLI bid farewell to Chairman Bobby Patel of BeCreative360 and Kona Cleaners in Orange, CA and Ed Longanecker of Iris City Cleaners in Mount Pleasant, IA.
Coming onto the board is Dan Sims of Jim’s Formal Wear in Trenton, IL and David Grippi of Clean Brands in Naples, Florida.
DLI made this presentation at its 2023 Summer Board Meeting.
Jeff Schwegmann II moved to the Chair position while Kathy Benzinger became President for the 2023-2024 term. Kyle Nesbit became President-Elect and Toran Brown was elected Treasurer. All Executive Committee positions are for the 2023–2024 term.
All Executive, Director, and District Committee Member leadership positions are volunteer. DLI greatly appreciates the time and resources all members of the Board of Directors share in guiding the Institute.
