After leaving his position as a public company CEO, Scott Paul looked for an opportunity to own a business in Hawaii, where he lived with his family. “I explored a few start-up company ideas, but was not comfortable with the cash flow risk,” he explains. “I was also close to accepting a position as the Hawaii director for a national energy company, but wasn’t excited about working for another large company. Meanwhile, I had been in discussions with the former owner of Kleenco, who started the company in 1971. Although we were both skeptical at first, we quickly realized that we shared the same values and business philosophy, and I was able to close on the purchase of the company in December 2012. I found the economics to be compelling, especially the opportunity for growth, and I was encouraged by Kleenco’s favorable reputation in the community.” Here, he discusses his unique perspective on the BSC industry, as well as how he handles the big challenges.
