Date: 11/01/2012 – The REDRHINO Leadership team is pleased to welcome Mr. & Mrs. Theo van de Sande as the organization’s newest addition to the organization’s team of franchise owner - operators.
Maureen and Theo have been married for six years and have one son, Luke who is three years old and one daughter, Bridget who is two years old.
Maureen and Theo are originally from the Netherlands, where they owned a successful commercial greenhouse construction and service company. Theo first visited California in 1999 during an internship for his bachelors in Business Economics. He immediately fell in love with the United States of America and wanted nothing else but to call this country his new home.
For the past 6-1/2 years Maureen and Theo have lived in Southern California where they were blessed with two beautiful children. During this period, Theo has worked as a project manager for a well-known produce company. In this fashion he initiated, organized, executed and brought to successful completion numerous construction and maintenance projects. Theo has a long and proven track record of leveraging his organizational skills, educational background and common sense approach while always working hands-on, in order to excel in his personal and professional endeavors.
In his capacity as project manager, Theo worked closely with REDRHINO in the execution of multiple complicated protective coating solutions.
“After an in-depth comparison of all deliverables, REDRHINO beat the ‘competition’ hands-down. No other organization demonstrated the knowledge or was able to explain the process in an understandable way. Additionally, REDRHINO provided all the necessary critical performance guarantees. The workmanship provided by REDRHINO turned out to be fantastic and REDRHINO has been our only epoxy flooring company ever since”. Theo van de Sande
As an entrepreneur with almost 20 years of construction, business and people management skills, Theo and Maureen are moving their family to the San Francisco Bay area from where they will be serving the complete area of Northern California.
“The response has been tremendous. The organization has entertained many requests from franchise candidates seeking the opportunity to open an office in the bay area. Northern California represents an incredible and untapped market for our brand. It was important that we find the right partner who is able to succeed in such a huge and aggressive market. We could not risk degradation in client satisfaction in this very important market. Theo is this person and represents the ideal franchise partner.” Michael Kenealy, the owner and founder of REDRHINO: The Epoxy Flooring Company
REDRHINO is the viewed as one of the leader in epoxy coating solutions. The organization is headquartered in Los Angeles California and has traditionally focused on the Western United States. Today, with a rapidly growing franchise network, the organization has taken a successful business model and replicated it through strong franchise partners in key U.S. markets.
Respectfully & Sincerely,
Michael D. Kenealy
