Tommy Car Wash Systems is pleased to announce that Alex Lemmen has joined the company in the capacity of Chief Operating Officer.
Lemmen brings an international perspective and growth-centric mindset to the Tommy Car Wash Systems team, having served for approximately five years with distinction as a management consultant at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG). BCG is a highly respected global management consulting firm and the world’s leading advisor on business strategy.
Ryan Essenburg, President of Tommy Car Wash Systems, stated: “Alex brings a perspective and skill set that is essential to our sustained growth and profitability. His experience with BCG puts him in a select group of individuals with the experience needed to scale a business to a national and international level.”
While his former responsibilities focused on global consumer goods and retail sectors, primarily concentrated in Latin America and the United States, Lemmen will now be responsible for helping the company navigate the aggressive growth triggered by the successful launch of the Tommy’s Express Car Wash franchise.
Lemmen is a native of West Michigan and holds a Bachelors of Business Administration degree from the University of Michigan’s Stephen M Ross School of Business.
The Michigan-based VisionQuest Inc. family of companies celebrated another year of growth and camaraderie at the Summer 2018 corporate rally in Holland, MI. Team members from sister companies including car wash developer Tommy Car Wash Systems, the Tommy’s Express Car Wash franchise corporate office, beloved West Michigan car wash brand Quality Car Wash, Tommy’s Express Car Wash corporate locations, corporately-owned Tim Horton’s franchises, and professional marketing group Navigate all gathered to share the year’s accomplishments and reinvest in a shared identity of service, value, and mission.
Today we’re highlighting Ryan Essenburg’s recent presentation “Fundamentals of Express Car Wash Success… Blue Ocean Vs. Red Ocean Site Selection.” This session was originally presented to an overflow crowd at The Car Wash Show 2018 in Las Vegas, NV. Ryan Essenburg serves as the president of Tommy Car Wash Systems.
The session will be held Thursday, April 26 from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m in the Las Vegas Convention Center. All attendees are also formally invited to visit the Tommy Car Wash Systems exhibit during regular show hours. We’ll be highlighting the new WASH CLUB Licence plate Reader setup, Easy-Chem Car Wash Solutions System, and our original equipment and building designs.
The people of the United Arab Emirates, who have built the tallest building in the world and some of the most magnificent creations on the planet, who import nearly everything from a global marketplace, have been unable to import professional car washing. In the United States we place conveniently located tunnel car washes at a rate of around 1 tunnel car wash location for every 20,000 vehicles. In Dubai there are a mere handful of car washes serving a city of millions who thrive on vehicle pride. So why such a failure in Dubai? How can it be that a city with so much figured out could fall so short in one category?
The Tommy’s Express Car Wash Franchise, proudly powered by Tommy Car Wash Systems, is pleased to announce that as of February 2018, fifty five Tommy’s Express franchise locations are under contract around the United States, with an additional international site planned for Saudi Arabia.
