Legend Brands CEO Bill Bruders has announced that John Ormsby will become President of Legend Brands. Bruders will continue his involvement as the company’s CEO.
Throughout his 22 years at Dri-Eaz and Legend Brands, Ormsby has displayed strong leadership in positions of increasing responsibility.
He has worked closely with Bruders to grow Legend Brands from its origins as solely a restorative drying products manufacturer to its current status as the global leader in cleaning, restoration and environmental control products for institutional, industrial, commercial and residential users as well as professional cleaners and restorers.
Together, Bruders and Ormsby have led Legend Brands into a new era – investing in high-tech manufacturing efficiencies in its U.S. plants while integrating the latest connected technology in equipment to help automate customers’ work.
Ormsby praised Bruders’ significant contributions and said, “I share Bill’s vision and passion for Legend Brands and look forward to continuing to advance our mission of providing the best products and solutions for our customers, whether they’re dealing with the extreme challenges of disaster clean-up or everyday needs for cleaning, maintenance and drying innovations.”
Legend Brands is home to several long-trusted brands in the professional cleaning and restoration industry, including Dri-Eaz, Mediclean, Unsmoke, ODORx, Chemspec, Prochem and Sapphire Scientific.
