SAN FRANCISCO — Independent certification organization America’s Best Cleaners™ (ABC) reports that Catherine McCann, formerly of Best Cleaners of Albany, N.Y., has joined the organization as partner and operations director.
“Catherine brings a next level of energy and expertise in to our existing team with her background in organizational management and operations, financial analysis, unique perspective from being in both the corporate world and the drycleaning business owner,” says Chris White, ABC partner and managing director. “She is very dynamic and has always brought a ton of energy to all of the projects we have worked on together in the past.”
McCann spent more than 18 years with Fortune 500 company AT&T, where she served in a variety of executive roles, including global sales operations director and global sales CFO.
