Chris Johnson: TNT Cleaning Services. It all began on a rainy spring day in April 1976 at Truesdale Hospital where a baby boy was ….
Okay, I’ll fast forward things a little. After growing up in Fall River, his first job was at the China Royal. From there he went on to run a plethora of businesses. This included various restaurants and his own cleaning company on Nantucket, a cafe in California as well as the Ruby Tuesday in Swansea, Ma and Middletown, RI. He had been an independent insurance agent for 8 years and recently left a position as account manager for a local supply company. Over the past 20 years, Chris Johnson has maintained being a strong advocate and supporter of local communities.
Chris has always made sure he has aligned himself with people and businesses that share the same business philosophy that he has- "do right by your customers and clients and everything else will fall into place".
Chris is currently the Business Development Manager for TNT Cleaning Services Inc. His role with TNT is drawing attention to the tremendous value that comes along with doing business with them. He is also heavily involved in networking with local organizations and area Chambers of Commerce. He is a member of the Metro South Chamber; he recently became an Ambassador with the New Bedford Chamber of Commerce and he has been an ambassador with the Fall River Area Chamber for the past 2 years where he was named Ambassador of the Year for 2012-2013. He continues to use his strong ties in the business community to help promote, grow and improve the community. He is a proud father of his 12 year old son Saige and his 9 year old daughter Emily. They are the driving force that gets him through the day.
