Executive Team

Hygiene, healthy communities and a healthy environment: these have always been three pillars of focus for the Sani Marc Group’s executive team. This shared vision has allowed all our subsidiaries to excel in their respective fields, and the partnerships our founders built our success on are as relevant today as they were when the company was first created.

When 27-year-old Geoffrey Wood founded “G.H. Wood and Company” in Toronto in 1922, his goal was to improve public health.

When René Laroche started up his cleaning services business in Victoriaville in 1952, he specialized in building maintenance and window cleaning.

And when G. W. Wyant founded Wyant Limited in 1950, the company quickly became a national distributor of sanitation products, and a direct competitor of Geoffrey Wood’s company.

Meanwhile, Jean-Claude Goudreault and RenĂ© Laroche co-founded Sani Marc in 1969. Over the years, Jean-Claude’s son, Pierre, rose through the ranks and became the President of Sani Marc in 1997. He focused his growth strategy on the acquisition of several businesses, making Sani Marc the benchmark for cleaning and sanitation in Canada. The purchase of Wood Wyant in 2005 led to the creation of the Sani Marc Group as we know it today.
