MEET OUR TEAM

See below an autobiography of the President and CEO of our team at Ideal Linen, Paul Mohr, as well as the rest of the team within the Corporate Office of Ideal Linen in order to match a face with a name when you are conducting business with Ideal Linen.

LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER

Hello, my name is Paul Mohr and I am the President/CEO of Ideal Linen. Ideal Linen is proud to be a family-owned and operated business that has been passed down through my family for generations. This company was once a small new business in 1907, and we are excited to see the growing business that it has evolved into today. I have spent my entire life around this business; witnessing its evolution from a small laundry to the service company it is today. Although my college degree is in Business Administration from Nebraska Wesleyan University, I started in this business from the ground up. I began in the washroom, moved to running one of our routes, and from there on to various other positions within the company. I have built relationships with all members of this company, and have experienced the thrill of working within the linen and uniform service. Then finally, I made my way to become President/CEO of Ideal Linen.

Through the years, I have watched Ideal expand from five routes and 45 employees to 16 routes and 117 employees. Today, we serve the needs of our customer partners in the following areas:  all of Nebraska, certain parts in Colorado, Wyoming, and Kansas.

I am proud of what our family has built and of the valuable services we provide.

Take a look at our office team below, we feature their stunning photos as well as inspiring biographies. Get to know the Ideal Linen family one by one.

Bill Ernst

Executive VP of Operations

After spending 35 years in the industry, I jumped at the chance to join the North Platte Ideal Linen team in January 2017. Leading a team that has consistently achieved stellar customer satisfaction scores was something that I just could not pass up. Our commitment is to be an engaged local partner while providing top shelf customer service in our service area. During my down time, I enjoy exploring and learning about all of the history this great area has to offer. Spending time with my four grown children and my grandchildren are at the top of my priority list.

Jeff Klein

Account Manager

On a daily basis (sometimes hourly) I interface with our larger customers, whose needs can be varied and unpredictable. I help create their subsequent orders and communicate that information directly to our team for preparation. Facilitating a prompt and flexible system is critical to the success of these accounts. When not at work, you’ll usually find me on the golf course, either playing or teaching.

Cierra Perreira

DISTRICT OPERATIONS MANAGER

I joined the Ideal team in August 2016 as a Territory Sales Manager for Northern Colorado. Growing up in “Colorful Colorado” allowed me the opportunity to assist in the expansion of Ideal Linen into the Colorado region. After a year of continued sales, I willingly accepted a position with the service team. My objective is to ensure that every customer is enthusiastic in continuing their business with Ideal Linen.

I have over 6 years of continued education that has provided me with the tools necessary to furnish viable resolutions to every customer in an expedited manner.

On a personal note, I was born to play basketball! There is nothing a game of basketball can’t fix!
