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.

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.
