G&K Services, Inc. announced it has selected Tracy C. Jokinen as the company’s next Chief Financial Officer, effective June 29, 2014. Jokinen will succeed Jeffrey L. Wright, who announced his planned retirement last October.
 
Jokinen joins G&K from the Valspar Corporation, a global manufacturer of paints and coatings, where she worked for 22 years in positions of increasing responsibility within the company’s finance organization. Most recently, she served as Valspar’s Vice President, Corporate Finance, where she led the company’s tax, treasury, investor relations, internal audit, operations finance, and corporate accounting functions. Her previous positions at Valspar included Vice President, Finance & Strategy, and Vice President, Corporate Controller & Chief Accounting Officer. She holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Saint Cloud State University.

Milroy, Chief Executive Officer. “Tracy brings the right combination of financial expertise, strategic perspective, and proven leadership to help G&K continue to advance our Game Plan and deliver profitable growth.”
 
G&K’s current Chief Financial Officer, Jeffrey L. Wright, will continue in his position through June 28, 2014, after which he will remain with the company through a short transition period.
 
“I’d once again like to thank Jeff for his 15 years of leadership at G&K and for his support ensuring a smooth transition,” continued Milroy. “We wish Jeff and his family all the best in his retirement.”
