Phil Hart, president of Kannegiesser ETECH Inc., has accepted an invitation to fulfill the unexpired term of Allied Trades Director, left vacant by the unexpected passing of Mark Mann of MIP Inc. in January, according to a news release. Hart will hold the post through June 2024.
“An organization draws on the strength and experience of its leaders, and ALM is proud to announce the addition of Phil Hart, president and CEO of Kannegiesser ETECH, Inc., to our Board of Directors,” said ALM Board President Richard Bott, RLLD, CLLM.
Hart joined the laundry industry in 1995, holding a variety of positions from sales and sales management, marketing, and technical operations. In 2013, he assumed the role of president and CEO of Kannegiesser USA. Hart was at the helm when his contributions brought Kannegiesser USA and E-Tech, Inc. together to form Kannegiesser ETECH, Inc. in 2017.
“I am excited Phil has joined the ALM Board,” said James Mangini, RLLD, current president-elect. “His years of experience within our industry are an asset, and it’s important to have representation from an equipment manufacturer as ALM continues to move strategically into the future. I look forward to working alongside Phil and the leadership he will provide.”
Much of that future includes building on the broad educational foundation ALM provides for every layer of the textile care industry.
“ALM’s educational solutions align with our goals to move the industry forward,” said Hart. “I look forward to working together with ALM leadership and membership now and into the future.”
