Coverall Cleaning Concepts, a leader in the commercial cleaning industry, announced today the purchase of the Eastern Tennessee Support Center by husband and wife team Tom and Michelle Clark. Coverall of Tennessee opened on June 1. Their Support Center is located at 109 Northshore Dr., Suite 402 in Knoxville and can be reached at (865) 588-5200.

With more than 28 years experience with Coverall combined, Tom and Michelle bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding to their new Coverall endeavor. Tom's experience of over 11 years with Coverall started in the San Diego Regional Support Center as an outside sales representative securing accounts for franchise owners to service. He has worked as a Field Consultant and in the corporate office as the National Accounts Subcontractor Manager. Tom continued his career to head up a division of Coverall called Aegis Floor Systems, which he worked directly with restaurant owners and service providers for the last five years.

Michelle's experience of 17 years with Coverall started in the Chicago Regional Support Center originally in administration, but quickly moved to the sales arena. For being a consistent high producer in securing customers accounts, Michelle's career advanced to include being a Regional Sales Manager, a corporate sales trainer, a Regional Director in several cities, and a National Director of Sales & Franchise Development.

"Knoxville is an ideal market for this industry due to its low cost of living, strong population and business counts, beautiful surroundings and rapid growth rate," Michelle Clark said. "We are relocating to Knoxville with our children, Adam (4) and Katelyn (2) to put Coverall of Eastern Tennessee on the map quickly."
v "Coverall Cleaning Concepts is thrilled to be expanding into the Eastern Tennessee region," said Ted Elliott, President and Chief Executive Officer of Coverall Cleaning Concepts. "Tom and Michelle have been exemplary Coverall employees, and we will assist them however we can in their new endeavor."

At Coverall of Eastern Tennessee, Tom and Michelle intend to service any type of facility that needs to improve their quality level of cleaning, but will place their primary focus on general offices, medical institutions and retail establishments. In the coming years, they plan to develop two additional regional support centers in Johnson City and Chattanooga, while hopefully becoming the preferred quality-cleaning vendor of Eastern Tennessee.
