RICHMOND, Ky. — The Association for Linen Management (ALM) named Cindy Molko senior vice president, filling the position vacated by Tom Mantey in July. Molko moves into the role after serving as vice president for the organization.
Richard Griffin, manager of Keystone Laundry in Colorado, will fill Molko’s vacated position as vice president.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to serve ALM at the national level and believe my experience in hospitality laundry services will provide a valuable addition to ALM’s outstanding educational programs,” says Griffin.
Meanwhile, Sarah James has resigned from her board position as administrative secretary. Her resignation is in compliance with ALM’s bylaws, which hold that only regular members—those serving in laundry operations/distribution role—are eligible to serve on the board of directors. James held her post on the board while serving as the director of medical laundry at TriCities in Bristol, Tenn., but has accepted the position of senior project manager with IPA in Duluth, Ga.
“Even though I will not be serving ALM from a position on the board of directors, I will continue to support the organization and our mission,” says James.
Judy Murphy, director of laundry services at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, Miss., will replace James as administrative secretary. Murphy began at North Mississippi as a staff nurse, transitioning to the clinical liaison for materiel management, where she provided clinical consulting services to the laundry.
