Executive Vice President Brian Grell receives 2015 CLA Industry Award

Every two years the Coin Laundry Association names its recipient for the CLA Industry Award. In 2015, that recipient was our own executive vice president Brian Grell.

The idea behind the award is to recognize special dedication and service in the coin laundry industry. Every day Brian proves that he is willing to go above and beyond for his colleagues, vendors, brokers and clients, and he has done an incredible amount to raise awareness of the CLA and its mission.

“Grell recognized in the coin laundry industry.”

Brian was one of the founding members of Eastern Funding alongside President Michael Fanger, and since that time he has been able to integrate his accounting, construction and industry development knowledge into the business. Brian has had faith in and dedication to the coin laundry industry and its members since the very beginning.

Come celebrate at 2015 Clean Show
If you’d like to offer your congratulations to Brian in person, the best place to do so will be down at the 2015 Clean Show at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

The event is scheduled to run from April 16 to April 19, and booth 1407 will be home to our Eastern Funding team. Furthermore, Coin Laundry Association will also hold its 2015 CLA Awards Reception during the Clean Show. The reception will take place on that Saturday at 5:00 pm, as awards recipients will be presented a customized plaque and formally recognized for their skills.

Once again, congratulations to Brian on this award and we all look forward to having him as a part of the coin laundry industry for many more years.
