AFFLINK President And CEO Announces Retirement
Dennis Riffer, AFFLINK president and CEO, has announced his intention to retire. Riffer joined AFFLINK in 2003 following an extensive and successful career in cleaning industry distribution. He previously has served as general manager for Kimberly-Clark Corp., parent company of Kimberly-Clark Professional, and director of global accounts for Scott Paper. Riffer will stay on through AFFLINK’s annual summit in June to assist with a successful transition.
“After a lot of reflection and conversations with my family over the past few months, I believe in my heart that there is no better time than today — on my 65th birthday — to announce my retirement from AFFLINK,” Riffer said. “It’s been a great ride, and I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished during my time here. Growing this business into what it is today has been one of my most treasured accomplishments, and I would never have been successful without everyone’s support and friendship along the way. I have truly been blessed.”
