West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum will host a luncheon discussion sustainable cleaning practices and technologies for its May education and networking program on May 8 at the West Michigan Works! Grand Rapids Service Center.
Featured speakers include Daniel H. Montes, Vice President of Business Operations for Brilliant General Maintenance, and Ron Segura, Founder and President of Segura & Associates. The two will share experiences creating and managing sustainable cleaning and maintenance programs for iconic technology and manufacturing brands in Silicon Valley and other markets in the Southwest and Michigan. Segura will also discuss common challenges to implementing sustainability programs with janitorial contractors and departments and how to get buy-in from internal and external providers.
Brilliant General Maintenance provides janitorial services to companies throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as throughout California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Michigan. It is a national leader in the development of sustainable cleaning solutions, at the forefront of efforts to improve building maintenance through thoughtful process improvement and innovative technology deployment.
