Viky and Nileshna Narayan with the Business Excellence in Marketing Award at the 7th annual Indian Newslink Indian Business Awards.
Congratulations to Viky and Nileshna Narayan, Regional Directors for CrestClean South and East Auckland, for winning the ‘Business Excellence in Marketing’ Award at the 7th annual Indian Newslink Indian Business Awards on the 24th of November 2014.
The award was presented to Viky and Nileshna by Prime Minister John Key and Indian High Commissioner Ravi Thapar. Many New Zealand luminaries were amongst the 900 people who attended the Gala Black Tie Awards Ceremony held at Sky City Convention Centre, including Auckland Mayor Len Brown, Phil Goff, David Cunliffe, Judith Collins, Winston Peters and several other MPs representing National, Labour, New Zealand First and ACT Parties.
“It was a really good night,” says Viky, who has been Regional Director for CrestClean since 2008. “I was hoping that I might get one of the awards and it was just butterflies waiting for it to happen.” View More >>
The CrestClean Team at Hobsonville Point Schools – Dave Smazik and Tereza Kratka, Mareta and Donte Alipia, Tony and Jana Jones, and Barbora Opavova and Dominik Drahoninsky.
As Facilities Coordinator at Programmed Facility Management, it’s Alison Murison’s job to ensure the primary and secondary schools at Hobsonville Point run smoothly.
“At any given time, when someone walks into the schools they have to look pristine,” says Alison.
Fortunately, there are four CrestClean husband and wife teams to help her keep the schools looking sharp, which is especially important as all eyes have been on this high profile project. The Hobsonville Point primary and secondary schools are the result of the first public-private partnership established to construct and maintain a school in New Zealand.
“There is a lot of interest from the teaching sector and many tours are conducted throughout the schools on a weekly basis. Crest helps enormously with their high standard of cleaning and nothing is ever too much to ask,” says Alison. “For example, a lot of the functions that are held at the schools are often last minute and Tony and Jana, with their flexible approach and willingness to go the extra mile, always meet them.”
That includes functions with special visitors such as Prime Minister John Key, who made a recent appearance. View More >>

For some companies an effective trade mark can become their most valuable asset.” View More >>
