Tom Kruse literally grew up in the commercial cleaning world, working side by side with his father on a cleaning route when he was in grade school. He officially entered the workforce in 1984 as a cleaner at Scioto Services in Columbus, OH. Over the next 15 years Tom took on management and administrative roles and earned his degree at Ohio State University. His passion for the business culminated with his purchase of Scioto Services in 1999.
Tom’s first deal was selling his firm to Marsden Holding, LLC in 2005. His operational acumen and successful divesture uniquely qualified him to lead Marsden’s mergers and acquisitions effort. Since 2005, Tom has brought over 30 companies to the Marsden family.
His extensive involvement in the business community includes many charitable causes, a Business Leader of the Year recognition, and his recent ascension to the Board President of the Building Service Contractors Association International.
