Ormond Beach, FL 11/9/2020 – Germfree’s CEO Keith Landy passed away last week. The entire Germfree family is deeply saddened by this immeasurable loss.
Germfree was founded by Keith’s father in 1962 and Keith spent his entire life in and around the company, first in Miami and later in Ormond Beach, Florida. In more than twenty years under his watch, Keith expanded on his father’s work by creating new product lines and entering new markets.
The family business grew to be a global manufacturing company, known across industries and continents. Keith’s unique vision, his uncompromising curiosity, his prodigious intellect, his razor-sharp dry wit, his boundless generosity… are just a few elements that we have lost with his passing.
Keith loved his family.
He loved this company.
He loved this business.
He loved our clients.
He loved his employees.
Keith took enormous joy in solving problems, and he was never more engaged than when he was working with clients, industry experts, and Germfree employees to create something new. Every product and every innovation here at Germfree bears his fingerprints.
Many of you were lucky enough to have known Keith, and everyone on #TeamGermfree is fortunate to come to work every day in the house that he built.
His loss is one that we will all mourn, but his legacy is one that inspires. We will continue to drive Keith’s vision through innovation, perseverance, and hard work. Together, we will do our part to make a better world for our clients, their patients, and our team.
Thank you Keith. We are forever in your debt.
