Pirtek USA Promotes Kim Gubera to CEO

New Pirtek USA CEO Kim Gubera to lead company’s strong focus on building franchises across the country and strengthening its brand.

January 07, 2019 // Franchising.com // Rockledge, Fla. - Pirtek USA has announced the promotion of Kim Gubera to the position of chief executive officer (CEO). A certified franchise executive with the International Franchise Association, Gubera previously served as Pirtek USA’s vice president and chief financial officer (CFO).

Gubera started out at Pirtek USA as corporate controller before her promotion to CFO in 2018. An experienced corporate financial professional, she served with a leading, national landscaping franchise where she held the position of director of finance before joining Pirtek USA. As CEO, she leads the company’s continued focus on strengthening the individual franchises and the overall Pirtek USA brand.

“Our vision as a company remains the same: partnering with our franchise owners to build successful businesses while expanding the PIRTEK brand in the United States,” said Gubera. “What I find exciting and challenging is working with the individual owners, their employees, and our corporate team, all of whom work each and every day to grow and support the brand while servicing our customers. Building relationships with, coordinating, and motivating these groups of talented people to work cohesively and in sync is a role that I welcome with enthusiasm.”

A Florida native, Gubera began her career in accounting and earned an MBA while successfully maintaining and advancing her career. In time, she became a certified public accountant and worked her way up to director of finance.

Among the most enjoyable aspects of her work is seeing the franchisee grow and succeed, she said. “There is nothing more rewarding than watching a franchisee develop a prosperous business using the PIRTEK model while meeting the needs of customers and employees, all at the same time.”

In her role as CEO, Gubera succeeds former CEO Glenn Duncan, who has more than 30 years at PIRTEK and now has transitioned to the leadership role of Pirtek USA’s executive chairman.
