Kannegiesser President Hart appointed in ALM Board

Phil Hart – president of Kannegiesser ETECH Inc. – has accepted an invitation to complete the unexpired term of Allied Trades Director within the Association of Linen Management (        ALM). This position became vacant by the unexpected passing of Mark Mann of MIP Inc. in January. Hart will hold the position until June 2024.

Hart entered the laundry industry in 1995 and held (senior)positions in sales and sales management, marketing, and technical operations. In 2013, he accepted the role of president and CEO of Kannegiesser USA. Under his leadership Kannegiesser USA and E-Tech, Inc. joined forces to form Kannegiesser ETECH, Inc. in 2017.

James Mangini – RLLD and current president-elect – stated that Hart’s years of experience within the industry are an asset. According to Mangini it is also important to have representation from an equipment manufacturer, as ALM continues to move strategically into the future. That future will also include continuation of the broad educational foundation the association intends to provide for every layer of the textile care industry.
