John Cloud – President
John grew up in Sarasota after moving here in 1966 with his family. He attended Sarasota High School and Vanderbilt University, graduating with a Business Degree. He was involved with Force Engineering a local company that created and manufactured the Stiletto Catamarans. In 1983 he took over a family timber business in NW Arkansas, later growing it and selling to a larger company. He developed the land in North Carolina where the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed, creating "Firefly Cove" a wonderful lakeside retreat in Lake Lure.
He created Gorilla Kleen because he saw the need for a well-informed, well trained and fully capable exterior cleaning company.
I am seeing that good cleaning relates more to technique and the proper cleaning solutions or chemicals than to simply blasting away with a pressure washer. Just because someone owns a pressure washer doesn’t mean that they are well trained and capable of solving your cleaning issues. We have a full line of chemicals, cleaning solutions, sealers and biocides that are designed to solve your cleaning issues properly and with long lasting results."
Tanya Hunn - General Manager
Tanya Hunn was born in New Mexico and raised in West Texas. Her previous experience in crisis management, marketing and social media, and event planning brings a new attention to detail to Gorilla Kleen. Tanya is the proud mother of 2 children, a daughter and a son, and enjoys home improvement projects and spending time with family and friends.
Two things drew me to Gorilla Kleen, the customer-focused business model with a focus on making each guest experience the absolute best, and the truly employee-centric working environment. “
