Mr R Cleaning Turns 50!
Steve Rawlings turned 50 this past weekend and to celebrate this landmark birthday, work colleagues and friends gathered at the mac in Birmingham to throw him a surprise party!
Steve has been a part of the we clean senior management team from the very start, he is a real “do-er”, a man who ensures tasks are done correctly, the first time. He has built a long career within the cleaning industry, plying his trade for over 30 years, 15 of those being with we clean. He has the responsibility of heading up the Specialist Cleaning Division with fellow Director, Tim Byng, and has played a pivotal role in driving the company forward, utilising his vast industry insight and wide skill-set.
Throughout his time with the business, Steve has shown great dedication and commitment, building up a reputation for working extremely hard, something that sets him apart and is a key reason why he has had such longevity in a very tough role, where he regularly works long and unsociable hours.
Steve is a true family man, and this is reflected in his kind spirited nature, where he will always try and help colleagues, putting other people before himself and going above and beyond what is asked of him.
Tim Byng who has worked in partnership with Steve for the last 15 years commented:
“Steve is a very loyal, committed and hard working individual in our business, i have been in the fortunate position of working with him so closely in partnership, in delivering first class specialist cleaning services for over 15 years, although our friendship goes back over 30 years. We were delighted to be able to celebrate his birthday in style, he deserved it.”
We managed to pull Steve aside to ask him to sum up his day and what we clean means to him:
“After 15 years, despite some trials and tribulations the business has enjoyed much success, but more importantly myself and the rest of the senior management team, Paul, David, Gaynor and Tim have remained great friends and treat each other almost as family.. I say family and place a lot of emphasis on that word family, because that’s what the business is all about, we are a family. I would like to thank everybody for giving me such a wonderful day. It’s one I’ll never forget and will remember it very well for a long time to come.”
