Kathy Gonzalez is Partner and Chief Executive Officer for Nu West. She started the company with over 20 years of experience in the laundry industry. She met her husband, Gary in high school. They were married in 1976 and had two children, Kristina and Ryan. She spent their growing up years being a "Super Mom" to them; as room mom, PTA President, After School Activities Director and doing anything and everything she could to make their growing up year's happy ones. She is now the proud "Ammi" of four grandchildren; Trevor, Kyla, Alexis and Bryce, and continues her involvement in their lives in a similar way; taking the grandkids to dance lessons, swim lessons, watching their sporting events, helping with birthday parties and spending time with them in every way she can.

Kathy started in the industry working with her in-laws in their family industrial laundry business. When the kids were out of school and out of the house, she decided, along with her husband, Gary, to branch out and establish their own business, Nu West. Working from a small room in their home, Nu West was born and became a reality on August 20th, 1999. Kathy is in the office each day, looking over the needs of each and every Nu West client, along with each and every Nu West employee. She has continued her passion for taking care of people, as she is now the Team Mom of Nu West, always bringing in treats for the holidays. She is the one that remembers every birthday, anniversary and start date of each employee. Don't be surprised if she is the one that picks up the phone when you call into the office, or she is the one that runs out extra product when you need it!
