MEET OUR TEAM
Aston Wells - General Manager
Aston is the General Manager and Head of Sales for Kiwi Commercial Cleaning and is dedicated to ensuring all stakeholders share in the value created within and outside of the organisation.
Aston says; “Having been involved in this industry since I was in university, I have always strived to ensure the value created is shared among all those involved in both producing and receiving our service. ‘Changing the face of Cleaning’ has been a mantra I have held dear to me, with respect to the legacy of my late brother who was my original business partner.
To ‘Change the Face of Cleaning’ means, at its core, ensuring every decision made focuses on maximising and bringing to the forefront the value created by providing this essential service. I am incredibly passionate about working with our clients, management team and especially the brilliant franchisees we have been fortunate enough to on board thus far.”
When he’s not working, Aston enjoys travelling, exploring a vast array of cuisines, and random chats with strangers.

Rihan Salim – Operations Manager
Rihan is the senior Operations Manager at Kiwi Commercial Cleaning, dedicated to achieving excellence with respect to service standards and exceeding client expectations.
“I have had a passion for, and have been involved in, the Commercial Cleaning industry for over 12 years. I have seen it all! There is nothing more satisfying than sharing the wealth of knowledge I have attained over the years with our talented group of franchisees and knowing that our service is out there making a real difference for our clients. No day is ever the same and this provides new and exciting challenges which I enjoy tackling head on.
For a successful operation, the client - franchisee relationship is fundamental. A key part of our system includes periodic site inspections which are conducted across the whole portfolio. This allows me to really get to know our clients on another level and provide valuable service enhancing feedback to our franchisees.”

Kevin Jones - Director
Kevin is the Corporate Social Responsibility Officer for Kiwi Commercial Cleaning and is dedicated to our mantra “Cleaning with Meaning”. He is also heavily involved in the strategy and direction of Kiwi Commercial Cleaning.
Of Kiwi Commercial Cleaning’s partnership with anti-child abuse charity Child Matters, Kevin says: “I believe we all need a purpose, a sense of Meaning from our work. Let’s face it, commercial cleaning can be hard and it can be tedious, but if I know that cleaning an office not only gives a good result for a client and feeds my family, but also the turnover contribution from that job may just help even one Kiwi kid not be abused, then I have found my Meaning. And better still, when that Meaning is shared, our clients participate in it too - it becomes a Shared Meaning, and the momentum from that is unstoppable.”
When he’s not working Kevin enjoys the sea, learning to speak Croatian and reading.
