Standley succeeds Russ Reynolds, who will serve as an operating advisor to the company and board member.

Standley brings over 30 years of multi-location, service organization experience with expertise in strategic development, operations, business transformation, unit growth through both acquisitions and de novo site development, and customer relationship management, including loyalty programs and capital markets, to Spotless Brands.

“I am eager to build on the incredible work that has already been accomplished by Russ and the full team at Spotless Brands. Looking ahead, I have full confidence that we will continue to push the boundaries of innovation and drive Spotless Brands’ growth to new heights,” stated Standley.
