“We are thankful to Bob Schrum for resisting the temptation to sell to one of the large acquisition groups. When I started working for Flagstop in 1994 as a car wash attendant, Bob had always talked to me about his desire to leave the company to the folks that help make him successful. I am excited to see his dream realized and start the next phase of Flagstop’s growth” says Jamie Nester, Flagstop’s new President and CEO.

Schrum states “As I enter into my retirement years I couldn’t be happier to leave my company in the very capable hands of Jamie Nester, Craig Marable, Derek Haynes and Lauren Denny. These great leaders have over 50 years of combined service with Flagstop and are ready to take Flagstop Car Wash into the future.”

Craig Marable, Flagstop’s Chief Operating Officer, stated that Flagstop is planning four to six (4-6) new locations throughout central Virginia in the next five (5) years through new construction or acquisition.
