Tobin Cleaning hires new marketing director

Dusty Johns
Tobin Cleaning and Restoration has hired Dusty Johns as its new marketing director.

Johns’ marketing experience in eastern Idaho has been extensive. After studying communications and public relations at Brigham Young University - Idaho, he took a job with Z103-FM, where he, at various times, hosted weekends, nights and mid-days. After several years, he became promotion and events coordinator for Riverbend Communications, Z103’s parent company, promoting and marketing its five radio stations.

He left to join Deseret Book Co., helping them develop the sale of music and film products to digital. In 2013 he became program director of Star 98 for Rich Broadcasting, and overseeing ratings growth of nearly 150 percent in little more than a year.

Johns has been involved in many local fund-raisers, for the Haven Shelter and American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, even riding a ferris wheel for 12 hours straight.

"I love East Idaho,” he said. “It is my home, where my kids live and play, and a place that I want to see be successful in every way.”

In business since 1972, Tobin Cleaning and Restoration, plans an open house March 11 at its new building, at 3466 E. 20 North, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The public is welcome to tour the new facility. There will be a ribbon cutting by the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, free lunch, spin-to-win games and a superhero photo booth.
