RICHMOND, Ky. — The Association for Linen Management (ALM) reports that Chip Malboeuf joined its Board of Directors at the end of June as president-elect.
The longtime ALM member succeeds Jim Mangini, RLLD, Maine Medical Center Linen Services, as Mangini moves into the role of president.

“I am honored and humbled at being selected for this position,” Malboeuf says. “I look forward to working with the ALM leadership and members and am excited for the opportunity to share my knowledge of the industry and to give back to ALM members.”
Malboeuf has taught myriad ALM educational programs throughout the years, and his history with ALM has built a foundation for collaboration with both the incoming and outgoing Board presidents, according to the association.
“I am excited that Chip Malboeuf has been chosen by our membership to serve as the president-elect of ALM,” says Mangini. “Chip’s extensive background within our industry is an asset to not only our membership but also our Board.
“I welcome the opportunity to work side-by-side with him over the next few years.”
