Damon reflects all of KleenMark’s core values exceptionally. He demonstrates outstanding performance, dedication and customer focus. It is always refreshing going to a customer meeting in the buildings in which he cleans because Damon’s dedication makes our clients happy and takes care of things very well.

Madison: Manuel Trejo
Manuel is the Day Porter for one of our most important clients in the Madison Market. This is an immense building with break rooms, a warehouse, and large production areas in addition to office space.
The client absolutely loves Manuel.
He is a very important reason that our partnership works with them. His attendance and dedication is outstanding.
Manuel’s technical skills are also some of the best in the business and he handles project, floor care, and specialty work while being able to run any piece of equipment that may be needed to finish the job.
He is also the epitome of KleenMark’s core values. He does not demand special treatment yet regularly goes above and beyond. There are few employees that could ever come close to Manuel’s level of dedication, positive attitude and professionalism in front of clients.
Amongst the Madison operations team he was a unanimous decision to receive recognition as the 2015 Kleener of the year. Kleenmark is lucky to have Manuel!
Milwaukee: Karin Alberto Lara
Alberto is the most dependable cleaner at a major Class A Office building. He helps out both the night and day crews and of course the client loves having him on staff. Alberto very much enjoys KleenMark and the KleenMark culture.
He has also jumped right in to help us with our new regional, multi-location accounts when folks call in sick or if we are short-staffed. Through thick and thin Alberto has been dedicated to KleenMark.
Regional Accounts: Laureen Nied
As the Northwoods area supervisor for our newest and largest client, Laureen has taken the reigns on the majority of client and cleaner interactions and has done a fantastic job for us.
She has been easy to coach and develop as she is always receptive to constructive criticism and advice. Laureen’s communication is also second to none as she regularly analyzes and discusses solutions and consequences before acting in the manner that best benefits Kleenmark and our relationship with the client. She has even become an asset in assisting in the development of one of our Education Accounts.
Laureen regularly looks for ways to become more efficient in day-to-day processes. Though she is pulled in multiple directions (training new employees, cleaning bank branches of her own, traveling to handle client interaction in her region, etc.) she doesn’t complain and maintains the mindset of, “work smarter, not harder”.
She is an excellent candidate to receive this award!

Pat has been a dedicated KleenMark employee for six years working with us at a major company in the Wausau area and has recently taken on more responsibility at one of our healthcare clients. She regularly strives to maintain quality and consistent service. Pat is dedicated to ensuring our customers see a clean building each morning they arrive.
