Cleaning & Restoration Association News

Hello, CFC

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Bob Lindsay. I've been a journalist all of my professional career. From a three-year stint in the US Army, where I worked as military journalist stationed in Hawaii, to a decade as the editor of a weekly community newspaper, my life has revolved around journalism, news, writing and photography.

Some industry folks may recognize my name. I've been writing about carpet cleaners and the cleaning industry for the last several years. When my publisher, Evan Kessler, called to offer me the editor's job at Commercial Floor Care, I jumped at the opportunity. I knew Evan after our paths crossed at various industry conventions. I liked him, enjoyed his company, and put a bug in his ear about future opportunities. I thought I could do great things with the company, if I only had the chance.

Well, now's my chance. I'm looking forward to this opportunity, and fully expect to be sitting in this chair a decade from now. I want to get reacquainted with the industry, and to get to know every facility manager I have the privilege to meet.

So, let's get to know each other, and to do good things for the professional cleaning industry. Commercial Floor Care is my home, and I want to share it with each and everyone one of you. Don't be afraid to write and let me know what you think. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on the magazine, articles you'd be interested in reading and issues that are of paramount concern to you.

My door is open, my email address is available (lindsayr@nycap.rr.com) and my phone number is there for your use (518.346.0493). Drop me a note or give me a call; I'm here for you, and interested in what interests you.
