Ryan Smith

Owner & President

Ryan Smith is the owner and president of Grimsley’s Inc., a janitorial supply company based in Stillwater, Oklahoma with customers throughout the state of Oklahoma. Ryan has worked for Grimsley’s since 1994, when he was hired as a part-time delivery driver. After Ryan graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1999 with a civil engineering degree, he realized that his true passion resided with the business world. Temporarily discarding his formal training, he began working as the General Manager for Grimsley’s in 1999 to determine if running a business was truly his desire. Finding it fulfilling, Ryan bought the business in 2004. Many years later, he is still enjoying the many facets of operating an independent business. 

Ryan Smith was born in Oklahoma City in 1976. Because Ryan’s father was in the Navy for 20 years, Ryan spent six years in Japan, six years in Indiana and six years in Oklahoma City where he completed high school.

Ryan’s passions include mission work, community service projects and power tools. Ryan went on his first mission trip in Spring 2006, where he discovered his desire to serve. He has since traveled to many places across the world, completing dozens of trips.

Sales Support & Customer Service Representative

I have been with Grimsley’s since January of 2000. In this time I have gained experience in just about every position at Grimsley’s. My current title of Office Coordinator gives me the chance to put all of that experience to good use everyday. I enjoy what I do and even more than that I enjoy coming to work everyday surrounded by people I consider friends and family! When I am not working I stay busy and exhausted having fun with my 2 kids! I love art, and when I have spare time I can be found creating something colorful!

Kayla Shrum

Sales Support

I made the team! Very serendipitous-ly, I switched career lanes from Non-Profit to Jan-San amidst the first days of a global pandemic. Being supportive comes as second nature for me, as does finding a good sale, making my position the perfect fit. My husband and I both hail from Perry, Home of the Maroons, where we are currently raising a future Baller and YouTuber. If I'm not at a field or in a gym, I can be found generations deep on a genealogical dig or barefoot in my garden.
