Ken Wentworth
President/Director of Sales and Marketing

As President, I wear many hats that touch all aspects of the company. By applying over 34 years of formulary experience, I direct our team of chemists on creating the best new and innovative cleaning products.  I also manage an amazing team of sales and marketing specialists to optimize our resources and focus our expertise. I am extremely confident in our team’s innovation, dedication and extensive knowledge of the Car Wash Industry. By applying these traits, we are able to partner with our customers to maximize their profitability.

Personally, I am passionate about our local community and work with several organizations as well as our Local School District to help give our youth additional guidance and experiences that will help them throughout life. I am married with two adult children and enjoy traveling, boating and fishing.  I also use my formulary skills as an award winning Home Brewer.  Another diversion to my busy life is singing Barbershop Harmony in both The Great Northern Union Chorus and a quartet called SWYPE.

Steve Girard

Steve Girard
Regional VP of Sales
Central Division

I bring over 29 years of experience to the Vehicle Care Industry.  I started my first Mobile Pressure Washing service called Professional Power Wash Systems in 1990.  Shortly after that I started a commercial truck wash called Better Bright in 1993.  I was given the opportunity to partner with ChemQuest in 1996 and helped to implement our unique Stay-Full Delivery Program. I believe what makes me and ChemQuest successful is our relationships.  We are your partner and care about your business and how successful you are.  I live in Wisconsin with my beautiful wife on a hobby farm.  When I am not working I enjoy taking care of our farm, our animals (1 horse and a couple of cats), and I find peace in mowing my very large lawn.  I also enjoy spending time at our cabin cruising the lake on the pontoon, fishing and working on projects.

Ryan Vossen
Regional VP of Sales
West Coast Division

I am the Western Regional (more or less west of the Mississippi River) VP of Sales and have been with the company for 14 years.  Half of that time was spent in the lab, where I  was developing/formulating new products or performing quality control, and the other half has been as a salesman. I am married with 3 kids from ages 8 to 2.  They keep us plenty busy between school and activities.  When we are not tied up with the kids’ activities I enjoy getting outdoors to hunt (or at least take in nature) and keeping my lawn nicely manicured.  Taking in the occasional sporting event (primarily Hockey) has also grown in interest with my oldest child.

Adam Keene
Regional VP of Sales
East Coast Division

Clean cars are in my blood- being a third generation “car washer”. I bring over 30 years of experience in the industry and with more than 20 of them working at ChemQuest. Growing up in a family-owned car wash company as well as owning my own wash has given me a unique knowledge of how to make chemical perform best in all types of equipment. I believe in building long term relationships with customers & have a desire to see my customers succeed. There are several customers whom have been with me nearly all my 20+ years at ChemQuest. To this day I continue to ask myself one simple question- “How can I make them better”. I live in Ohio with my wife & 2 daughters. When I am not working or at my carwash I enjoy vacationing with my family, which under protest, always includes a trip to the local carwash!

Sales Engineer
East Coast Division

I bring 16 years of experience helping customers create a productive and profitable chemical program for their business.  I love my job and the challenges it brings.  Being able to help someone succeed by sharing my experiences and knowledge is one of the greatest parts of my career.  Yes, at the end of the day it is all about a "Clean, Dry, Shiny" car but, knowing what it takes and how to get there is what makes us different.  Outside of work I love spending time with my wife and 3 boys.  If I am not working in the car wash, you can find me working on my grill cooking something great!

I am second generation in this business and have over 10 years in the industry which includes working in sales and in carwashes. By working in carwashes I feel I understand the needs and wants of my customers. To me this job is a partnership and we both have to do our best to grow. I believe my ability to understand, ability to provide great customer relationships, and the company I work for are keys that I have to bring to customers. When not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife and family. Without God and them I would not be where I am today. When not spending time with them I am watching sports like football and basketball.
