CEO of Mint Eco Car Wash Wins 2022 Small Business Person of the Year

WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, June 1, 2022 — Geoffrey Jervis, CEO and Co-founder of Mint Eco Car Wash, was named the 2022 Small Business Person of the Year Award winner last week by the Chamber of the Palm Beaches during their Business Awards breakfast. The annual award honors an individual who is a business leader that exhibits dedicated involvement to the community. Geoff was selected as one of four finalists, from over 80 nominations.

During his acceptance speech, Geoff shared with those in attendance: “If you know Mint Eco, you know how uncomfortable it is for me to accept an award that signifies individual accomplishment.  Mint Eco is a cultural experiment based upon subordinating self-interest to the interests of the organization.  What I have seen during my career is that organizations get it wrong.  What they lack is trust: that everyone in the organization is not only working towards a common goal, but that everyone is willing to subordinate their own self-interests to those of the organization…and, when necessary, to the other members of the team.  This is what we are trying to do here at Mint Eco.  Not as individuals, but as a team.”

The award comes on the heels of several other accolades for Mint Eco, including 2022 Best Car Wash in Palm Beach County and the Employer Patriot Award, given by the Office of the Secretary of Defense to those who support employees serving in the National Guard or Reserve.
