IKECA Announces New President
The International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association (IKECA), an international non-profit trade organization, committed to fire prevention and life safety by advancing the quality of cleaning, inspection, and maintenance of commercial exhaust systems worldwide, announces the appointment of Randall (Randy) Rauth of Hood Cleaning Inc. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Rauth started his career in the restaurant service business. His first job was working for Safety-Kleen in Waukesha, Wisconsin, as a Route Salesman for grease filter service. He did well in that position and as a result, he was promoted to the national sales team. In 1984, Randy and his wife Patti started cleaning kitchen exhaust systems. They incorporated in 1989 as Hood Cleaning Inc.
Hood Cleaning Inc. now services commercial kitchens, restaurants, universities, senior living centers, and corporate kitchens throughout SE Wisconsin.
"I welcomed the opportunity to become President of IKECA and lead such a great group of people," adds Rauth. "My goal is to continue to reinforce IKECA's position as the industry leader and expand recognition of all the great members who play such a vital role in the life safety of our community."
