Claire is the chief operating officer of International Carwash Association™, the trade group representing the retail and supply segments of the global professional vehicle care industry.
Claire joined the International Carwash Association in 2004 as the Director of Education. During this time, Claire designed and developed the educational programs offered to both the operator and vendor members of the association.
Claire helped to launch a new environmental stewardship initiative for car wash owners and operators, known as WaterSavers. This program has grown to just under 2000 locations and has proven an effective method for car wash owners to communicate their environmental stewardship practices to their customers.
