Matthew Gilman Named President of Richclean

Succeeds his father Barry Gilman in leadership position at this drycleaning supplier

RICHMOND, Va. — The Board of Directors of Richclean announces the promotion of Matthew Gilman to president of the company.


“Matthew succeeds his father, Barry Gilman in this position,” the firm says. “Barry held the leadership position since the company began in 1975,” it notes.


Richclean serves the cleaning industry in Virginia, Maryland and D.C. with quality supplies and expertise for dry cleaners, laundries, lodging, healthcare, and coin-ops, the company relates.


“Barry decided that it was time for him to scale back his activities and responsibilities at RichClean and partially retire. There has been a long-time strategy in place for Matthew to step into Barry’s position when he retired,” the firm says.


“For the last 21 years, Matthew has been ‘learning the ropes’ and the Richclean Board of Directors felt that he was ready to step up to the leadership position,” the company indicates.


Vernon Norris, Chairman of the Board says, “I am proud of Matthew’s accomplishments over the years and have full confidence that he will successfully lead Richclean going forward.”


Norris also states that, “Barry will still be around, fulfilling various roles and offering advice and wisdom when needed.”


Richclean operates from a 20,500 square foot warehouse facility in western Henrico County just outside of Richmond, Va., the company points out.
