Meet the team
These are only a handful of our nation wide team.
Trevor and Linda Byers
Trevor has been in the cleaning industry for over 30 years with most of that time in management or ownership. Trevor and Linda started Gleamz over 4 years ago and have enjoyed having their son and daughter-in-law jump on board to make it a family business. Over the many years that Trevor has been in the industry he has seen many a different floor and encountered various problems so his knowledge and past experience sees our team well equipped to deal with any hurdles that we come across.
Linda has a real health focus and was the driving force behind Gleamz looking to “green” options for cleaning products and materials.
Trevor and Linda enjoy getting outdoors and making the most that a country lifestyle provides. Home grown produce, cattle grazing and chickens to keep them occupied. With all the space they have around them Trevor and Linda love to fill it up with their 8 grandchildren to run after and keep them young.
Jade started out in the transport industry. Jade holds his class 5 truck licence and enjoys getting behind the wheel of a large truck and trailer unit travelling across the Country. Having a young family at home meant that he wanted a change so that he was able to spend more time at home with Lee-Anne and their 2 kids. Jade started out learning the floor polishing ropes from his father to help out at a time when the business needed extra assistance. Jade quickly developed a passion for floor polishing and with his eye for detail is a natural at it quickly becoming highly skilled – learning from the floor up literally. Jade is now involved in more than just the floor polishing and is assisting Trevor with the operations of the business nationwide and in charge of the local team of cleaners in the sunny Bay.
Lee-Anne’s career started in the legal industry and while on maternity leave with Jade and her first son she gave a hand to the family cleaning business for a few hours a week. As the company grew so did Lee-Anne’s involvement. Four years on, two children later and with so many changes over that time Lee-Anne is now the General Manager taking care of matters. Lee-Anne is passionate about the challenge of being at the helm of a business. Coming from a big law firm where there was a specialist for everything you needed and you could turn to for support she has learnt that in business you have to be flexible and willing to learn if you wish to grow. Everyday there are new challenges that mean we have an opportunity to learn and expand as people and professionally provide greater services.
“When one door closes another one opens”
My career started working in the hotel industry in various positions for many years. Once I started a family of my own, work life took a backseat for a period of time. Shift work hours did not fit into life as a new parent! In more recent years, I worked full time in an office within the Transport Industry.
Working parents can relate to employment and family life squeezed together as being a very busy time. After many months of enduring a very unbalanced work and home life, I chose to make family my focus and look for part time employment
What appealed to me is how Gleamz is a family orientated business. They are also willing to work with employees to help them achieve personal and career goals should they strive for this. That in itself was a major draw card for me. The Gleamz team allow me to work flexible hours around my family commitments. The position has also enabled me to achieve career goals that were previously unattainable i.e. learning payroll, working with accounting systems and delving into Human Resources work.
Today, my personal and work life balance is 100 times better than before. I enjoy working with a great team at Gleamz, the challenges to make work life interesting and an office dog to keep me company! And let’s not forget my three lovely children aged nine, eight and five years who still keep me on my toes!!!
