GreenEarth Cleaning appoints Lien as Technical Director

GreenEarth Cleaning has promoted Andy Lien to the position of technical director. Announcing the appointment this month, the company’s president Tim Maxwell stated: “Andy has demonstrated terrific technical, communications, and managerial skills during his six year tenure with our team.”

Lien is the second technical director in the 20-year history of the company. Since its beginning  as a start-up company Jim Douglas (co-founder) has acted in the role throughout its growth to being a major environmental dry-cleaning brand. Jim Douglas added: “Andy is tremendously capable, and I know he will provide great guidance and support to our Affiliated Members during the coming years. He’s an outstanding talent and we’re fortunate to have him on our team.”

Lien graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Minnesota State University. After two stints as a manager in the service industry, he served as the general manager and director of operations for Camelot Cleaners in Fargo, North Dakota from 2006 to 2013. It was during this period where Lien became familiar with Green Earth’s sustainable dry-cleaning process and helped to convert the operation from perchloroethylene to GreenEarth.
