Management

Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan, President

Michael came to direct our business via a non-traditional route. He brings a wealth of knowledge – degrees in chemistry, electrical engineering and business – and some rather atypical professional experience. He joined the Air Force in his early 20s and spent his career designing satellites for the Department of Defense. A rewarding career to be sure; however, when he got the call to take over the family business, his interests turned from space, back to earth. No more temporary assignments, Phoenix is indeed his home base.

Michael became president and owner of Bell Cleaners in 2001. He has served as the Chairman of the Board and President of the Western States Drycleaners and Launderers Association, and was named Drycleaner of the Year in 2004, 2005, 2007.

In 2004, he purchased the CRDN franchise for the state of Arizona. Within one year, Michael was asked to join the Partners Advisory Committee and recently completed a 10-year commitment. CRDN recognized Michael as its "Shining Star" in 2004; the Arizona franchise has achieved Platinum Level in sales each year of operation.  In addition, CRDN of Arizona has been ranked the Number One franchise in the nation on two occasions since it opened its doors.

At the most recent convention, May 2015, CRDN again was recognized for its impressive sales, customer service and commitment to the CRDN mission. Michael, and the entire CRDN crew, is proud to remain affiliated with this international textile restoration company.

In the local community, Michael has served on the St. Francis Xavier Finance and Development committee, and currently serves on the St. Francis Xavier Parish Council.
