Meet the Team
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 – Chief Operations 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.”
Wanda Smith – Sales Associate
Wanda grew up in Sarasota, her background in business has always included cleaning services. She owned and managed her own residential, commercial and construction cleaning company for 21 years.
