ModWash Announces The Appointment of JT Thomson As New CEO

ModWash, a new express car wash operator, today announced the appointment of John (JT) Thomson as Chief Executive Officer. Thomson comes from GO Car Wash and replaces the company’s interim CEO Hans Weger.

Thomson brings a wealth of car wash experience to ModWash as the company sets out to have 16 car washes operating by the end of 2020, 30 by the end of 2021, and 100 by the end of 2023. ModWash’s current growth plan focuses primarily on ground-up developments paired with redevelopments and an occasional strategic acquisition. All ModWash locations will feature state-of-the-art car wash equipment and technology, resulting in an environmentally conscious wash and an exceptional guest experience.

“I’m very excited for the opportunity to help launch the ModWash brand and lead the ModWash team. It has been an incredible privilege to work at GO with such a great team and group of investors. Now I’m thankfully and enthusiastically looking forward to big, bright opportunities at ModWash with our strong team of motivated, strategically minded people. I look forward to helping make the ModWash vision a reality, creating positive and lasting ripple effects in the local communities we serve,” said Thomson.

Most recently, Thomson co-founded GO Car Wash in January 2019, where he started as the Chief Operating Officer and became the Chief Development Officer and President. GO Car Wash currently operates 31 stores with four additional stores in development that are anticipated to open by the end of 2020. During the first 12 months, Thomson helped shape the management team, build the GO Car Wash brand, oversee marketing strategy, and work with the team to create strategic systems and processes for operations. JT played a critical role in the growth of GO Car Wash.
