In her new role, Scott will become a member of the company’s Executive Leadership Team, reporting directly to Zillmer, and will oversee the company’s nearly 20,000 employees who serve approximately 400,000 customers providing uniform, laundry and allied services.

Brad Drummond, who announced his retirement from the company at the end of the year, will serve as an executive advisor during his transition.

“Kim is a growth-oriented executive with extensive commercial experience closely related to our business model,” Zillmer says. “Her pragmatic leadership and strategic thinking will help accelerate our profitable growth while enhancing our employee and customer experience.

“As we focus on growth and better alignment within the industries we serve, we are confident that under Kim’s leadership the business will reach new heights of performance success.”

“I am excited about the opportunity to lead this team of dedicated associates,” Scott says. “Together we will drive profitable growth in the business, creating opportunities for our people and delivering exceptional service for our customers.

“Building on our strong track record of success, our innovative thinking and our deep consumer insights, Aramark Uniform Services will be well-positioned for future success.”

The company says Scott brings more than 26 years of experience to her new role. A graduate of Auburn University, she has an extensive commercial background leading large, dispersed workforces in route-based distribution businesses.

She brings deep experience in strategic and plant operations, logistics, engineering, procurement and M&A. Before her most recent role as chief operating officer of Terminix Global Holdings Inc., Scott held key leadership roles including president of Rubicon Global Holdings.

During her 11-year career at Brambles Limited, she rose through the ranks from manager, strategic operations, CHEP USA, to president, CHEP North America.

Her early career was spent with the United States Steel Corp. and the General Electric Co., where she held positions in environmental engineering, procurement, and health and safety.
