CHICAGO — Doug Calvert, former CEO of Cannon Hygiene Inc., has stepped down as the company’s top executive officer after the firm was acquired, according to a press release
Calvert said the recent acquisition was the result of Cannon Hygiene’s significant growth over the past three years, the release stated.
Calvert believes focusing on his customers, employees and “doing the right thing” — even in an uncertain economy — are the key reasons for the success.
“These are always good business practices that can also lead to growth,” he said. “In our case it was even stronger because everyone working at our Atlanta office also believes in these same principles.”
Calvert, who has already begun investigating new opportunities, has been in the JanSan industry for 30 years, starting with such well-known firms as S.C. Johnson and Kimberly-Clark.
