What is your biggest success?

My biggest success has been establishing sustainable commercial growth of my company, Ultimate Cleaning Solutions (UCS), which includes the geographical expansions, from a single location in Johannesburg, to branches in the Garden Route and Durban. This does not only signify the success of our business model, but also the trust and satisfaction of our customer base.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

My biggest hurdle has been navigating the complexities of scaling my company, while maintaining the high service delivery standards that we have set, as well as balancing operational efficiency, staff training, and customer satisfaction, in the contemporary South African economic climate.
