GULF BREEZE, Fla. — Commercial laundry equipment distributor Commercial and Coin Laundry Equipment Co. (CLEC) has promoted Greg Reese to sales manager, the company reports. Reese has been with CLEC since 1997.
“Greg has been an asset to the CLEC sales organization since he started,” says company President Craig Dakauskas. “With our significant growth and acquisitions, we expect that Greg’s impact will be amplified in building and supporting the entire sales staff.”
Reese has served both the coin laundry and on-premises laundry markets in southern Alabama and the southern half of Mississippi. Dozens of new investors have relied on his expertise to build their first vended laundries, CLEC says, and his track record of success, industry knowledge and communication skills have made him a trusted laundry industry resource in his territory.
In his new role, Reese will be responsible for directing the CLEC sales team in expanding its presence in existing markets, while also uncovering new opportunities.
“I am looking forward to making a positive impact on Commercial and Coin Laundry’s overall business for many years to come,” Reese says. “The first 20 years have been quite rewarding watching the company expand its leadership position into other markets behind respected brands like Speed Queen and UniMac.”
CLEC boasts a staff of more than 25 employees, as well as expansive equipment and parts inventories. The company recently purchased Greenwood, Miss.-based Delta Laundry Equipment, which distributes Speed Queen coin laundry equipment throughout the state of Mississippi.
