Whitman Global Carpet & Floor Care, an APEX Surface Care Company, announced today the promotion of Brendan Wires to regional president, Pacific Northwest. In his new role, Wires will be responsible for leading the operations and growth strategy of the company, which serves some of the most prestigious companies in the Puget Sound region and surrounding area.
Wires joined Whitman Global as director of operations in May 2018 and quickly became an invaluable member of the team. He has more than 25 years’ experience in the B2B industry.
“Brendan has certainly earned this position, having proven his ability to lead by steering the company successfully throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” said APEX Surface Care CEO Thomas Holland. “He has our full confidence, and I look forward to seeing him take Whitman Global to new heights.”
Wires is replacing Lottie Whitman, who is retiring after more than 16 years with the company. Whitman led the company through a period of explosive growth, including the merger with Dallas-based APEX Surface Care in early 2021.
“I know I am leaving the company in more-than-capable hands,” Whitman said. “Brendan truly cares about each and every one of our clients and goes above and beyond to ensure we meet their high expectations. He is committed to excellence and embodies our core values.”
“I am excited to take on this new challenge and maintain the stellar reputation that Lottie built with her father, David Whitman,” Wires said. “On behalf of the entire APEX team, I want to extend our deepest appreciation to Lottie and wish her the very best in her well-earned retirement.”
Whitman Global, which is based in Woodinville, Washington, has more than 40 years of commercial carpet and floor cleaning expertise. Since joining the APEX Surface Care family of brands last year, the company has expanded its offerings and added new team members to better support client success, including Vice President of Client Relationships Mark Ramey, Client Relationship Manager Jon Begg, and Vice President of Strategic Accounts Mariesa Oxford.
