In a personal message to partners, Paul Fazio announced that he will be stepping down as CEO of Sonny’s and handing the reins over to Curt Hutchins.

Curt Hutchins has more than 30 years of experience with large, multinational manufacturing companies. With extensive experience in both operations and sales, he has twice taken companies of Sonny’s size to the next level.

Fazio has been the CEO of Sonny’s for the past 32 years, helping build the company from a small car wash manufacturer to an industry powerhouse. Fazio is not leaving the company; he will remain active as the board’s chairman.
