Legend Brands has named John Ormsby as president of the company effective August 18, 2021. He will report to Bill Bruders, who will continue his involvement as the company’s CEO.
Throughout his 22-year career with Dri-Eaz and Legend Brands, Ormsby has displayed strong leadership in positions of increasing responsibility. He has worked closely with Bruders to grow Legend Brands from its origins as solely a restorative drying products manufacturer to the global leader in professional restoration, cleaning and environmental control solutions.
Together, Bruders and Ormsby have led Legend Brands into a new era—investing in high-tech manufacturing efficiencies across its U.S. plants, while integrating the latest connected technology in equipment to help automate customers’ work.
“I share Bill’s vision and passion for Legend Brands and look forward to continuing to advance our mission of providing the best products and solutions for our customers—whether they’re dealing with the extreme challenges of disaster clean-up or everyday needs for cleaning, maintenance and drying innovations,” said Ormsby.
Legend Brands is home to several long-trusted brands in the professional cleaning and restoration industry, including Dri-Eaz, Chemspec, Prochem, Sapphire Scientific, Mediclean, Unsmoke and ODORx, plus its latest lines of Un-Duz-It and Goodbye consumer products.
