HUTTON Announces Appointment of ModWash CEO

HUTTON announces the appointment of John (JT) Thomson as Chief Executive Officer of ModWash, a new express car wash operator. Thomson comes from GO Car Wash.

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 2023.

“I’m very excited for the opportunity to help launch 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 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.

“HUTTON and the ModWash team are thrilled to have JT on board. We’re confident that he’ll bring the expertise, strategy, creativity, and leadership that we need and the value on the ModWash team,” said Karen Hutton, President & CEO of HUTTON.
