Mr. Brown is responsible for strategic planning, operations management and unit franchise sales administration at Stratus Building Solutions of Georgia, a regional Master Franchise of St. Louis-based franchisor Stratus Building Solutions that is introducing new standards for high quality in the commercial cleaning industry.
Headquartered locally at 2500 Cumberland Parkway, Stratus Building Solutions of Georgia licenses commercial cleaning franchise units in metropolitan Atlanta and across Georgia and works with franchisees to help grow their business. Participating unit franchisees provide totally modern “environmentally green” cleaning services for retail, commercial, industrial, multi-family and professional buildings based on Stratus Building Solutions’ successful business model, including a unique customer satisfaction guarantee.
Mr. Brown, age 45, said, “I am enthusiastic about returning to Atlanta where I began my career in sales and sales management. I especially look forward to expanding Stratus Building Solutions of Georgia as the premier commercial cleaning service franchisor and franchise business development firm in Atlanta and throughout the state.”
After graduating magna cum laude from Yale University in 1984, Mr. Brown began a successful business career as a publishing sales executive in Atlanta, then created and managed publishing companies in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, which he later sold. He then established new sales channels as a key account executive for companies in publishing, contract manufacturing and business services before serving as a sales and marketing consultant for professional services and high-technology firms.
Most recently, Mr. Brown served as Director of Global Marketing and Investor Relations at Measurement Specialties, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEAS), a global designer and manufacturer of industrial sensors based in Hampton, VA, whose fiscal 2007 sales exceeded $200 million.

The Stratus leadership team is as strong as any in the franchising industry. These are among the key reasons why I chose to become associated with the company.”
