On Thursday 22nd December, we said Farewell and Happy Retirement to a long standing Industry Expert and Friend, Mr Sandy Aird. If there was a Cleaning Industry Award for experience and knowledge, Sandy would win by far. With over 25 years in contract cleaning at Ramoneur, MacLellan, Strand and Enhance, Sandy knows the business inside out!
With an established list of prestige clients including Solicitors, Financial Institutions, Property Developers and Managing Agents, Sandy always believed that the secret of success started with being a good listener and then taking a detailed and informed approach to clients’ needs.
“Sandy was an integral part of the Management Team particularly in the reformation of the Association in 2016. Having worked in the industry and the earlier CSSA, I found Sandy to be approachable, highly knowledgeable and professional and always willing to commit time and energy to further the needs of the industry and the Association” John Findlater, CEO Cleaning & Support Services Association
Winning in various categories, the prestigious Golden Service Awards as well as Recognised Living Wage Providers Winner, Sandy put his heart and soul into everything he did and is highly regarded in the industry. A staunch supporter of the London Living Wage, Sandy campaigned for decent wages for staff. Paying a fair wage was always a key factor in helping Enhance attract and retain the best staff.
Earlier this year, Sandy announced Enhance’s acquisition by Intelligent Workplace Solutions Ltd (Workplace). He remained on in his role as Director for 12 months, to grow and expand operations and to ensure a smooth handover for all his clients.
Good Luck in the future Sandy, you will be truly missed by colleagues, clients and friends.
