This year, Facility Cleaning Decisions magazine honors six exceptional executives who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty — whether they’re tackling antiquated cleaning practices, motivating lethargic staff, or cleaning toilets.

These Managers of Distinction wear many hats, and they wear each one with pride. They challenge the norm and sometimes overstep boundaries to ensure the cleanliness of their facilities and the health and safety of building occupants. In so doing, they serve as role models and mentors not only for their staff, but in their communities, as well.

Winners include:
Harry Proulx, Facilities Supervisor at Rochester School Department, New Hampshire
Van Le, Supervisor of Custodial Services at Community Consolidated School District 15 Palatine, Illinois
Tammy Justice, Manager of Housekeeping, Mail Services, Shipping & Receiving and Surplus at University of North Carolina Asheville
Eric Herman, Public Services Manager at City of Austin — Building Services, Texas
Lisa Ferrell, Housekeeping Manager for University Facilities Management at Kent State University, Ohio
Jess Baidwan, Custodial Services Supervisor at Southern Ute Indian Tribe, Ignacio, Colorado
