INWOOD, N.Y. — Laundrylux, distributor of Electrolux and Wascomat laundry equipment, has promoted Robert Hinojosa to regional business manager, coin, for its Northeast Territory.
“Robert is a great asset to our company,” says Laundrylux President Howard Herman. “He started out in Inside Sales about four years ago and has steadily taken on additional work and responsibilities. Robert served as an interim RBM for the West Coast over the past year and did a super job.”
Hinojosa was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, where his father and grandfather were partners in multiple coin stores. “Needless to say, I spent many weekends with my father keeping the stores clean and maintaining machines,” he says.
After college, Hinojosa’s grandfather, a long-time Wascomat distributor, asked him if he would like to work for his company selling Wascomat equipment. Hinojosa says the first-hand experience gave him great insight into the distribution business.
“Robert joined Laundrylux with the goal of becoming a regional (business manager), and he worked very hard to achieve that goal,” says Laundrylux COO John Sabino. “When this new opportunity arose, we knew the timing was right and (that) Robert was the man for the job. His knowledge of financing, new store development, and products has continued to grow, and we are confident he will be a great asset to the Wascomat and Electrolux coin distributors in the Northeast region.”
