MINNEAPOLIS — G&K Services has announced that Chief Executive Officer Douglas A. Milroy will be taking a planned temporary medical leave, starting Feb. 29, to treat an aortic aneurysm.
The company expects that Milroy will recover fully within four to six weeks and will completely resume his normal duties upon his return.
Milroy will continue to serve as G&K’s chief executive officer and as a member of the board of directors, and will, as circumstances allow during his recovery, remain actively involved in G&K’s operations and business.
Given the expected short duration of Milroy’s leave, the board has decided that G&K’s executive management team will jointly be responsible for the day-to-day business decisions and operations of the company.
“We wish Doug the best for a full and speedy recovery and look forward to his quick return,” says Lenny Pippin, G&K’s chairman of the board. “Both Doug and the board have full confidence in our very capable management team to run day-to-day operations and business during Doug’s brief leave, and continue driving solid results against our game plan.”
