Brian Grell Elected Chairman of the Coin Laundry Association

Brian Grell – co-founder of Eastern Funding, LLC – has been elected Chairman of the Coin Laundry Association for 2020. Grell previously served as on the CLA board as treasurer.

Brian entered the laundry industry more than 30 years ago, when he became a controller for the largest distributor of coin-operated laundry equipment and route operator in the United States at the time. After a decade in that role, Brian joined forces with Michael Fanger and together they started Eastern Funding. This company has become a leading financial lender to vended laundries in the United States.

As a CLA board member, Brian has always been focused on helping laundry owners improve their businesses. Michael Fanger: “Brian has been integral to our success since we founded Eastern Funding in 1997.  We are delighted that he is bringing his boundless energy, positive attitude, and love of the vended laundry industry to the CLA. The industry has and will continue to benefit from his contribution.”
