KANSAS CITY, Mo. — GreenEarth® Cleaning, a company focused on environmentally friendly dry cleaning and providing non-toxic cleaning alternatives, recently named Tim Maxwell as its chief executive officer (CEO). Maxwell had served as president of the company since 2003.
In his role as CEO, Maxwell will continue oversight of GreenEarth Cleaning and the company's network of Affiliates. GreenEarth's proprietary products and processes are available at more than 6,000 points of consumer contact around the globe.
"What has been most gratifying to me over the past 20 + years, has been the commitment by so many members of both the Affiliate network, and the staff at GreenEarth to innovate the system to not only reduce energy and additive usage, but provide the lowest overall operational cost to garment care providers,” says Maxwell.
Expansion of the company’s Affiliate Network has been deliberate and measured over the past 24 years, Maxwell says, and has provided the company with sustainable growth during that time
"We are proud to include some of the finest garment care providers in the world among our Membership,” he says, “whether that be a 7-Star hotel in Dubai, the holder of the Royal Warrant in England, or a family-run counter in Minneapolis."
Added Maxwell, “Providing a kinder clean in even more markets in the coming years is a ‘challenge accepted’ for the GreenEarth Team.”
Maxwell and his wife, Karen, enjoy traveling from their home base in Kansas City with their two adult children, Kelsey and Kolin.
GreenEarth was founded in 1999 by partners, General Electric, Procter & Gamble, and three dry cleaners - Jim Barry, Ron Benjamin, and Jim Douglas to develop environmentally non-toxic solvents for dry cleaning.
