Attending the Hawkes Bay Primary Principals’ Conference for a second year in a row resulted in even greater benefits for CrestClean, says Regional Director Abby Latu.
Held over three days in August at the Wairakei Resort Taupo, the conference draws representatives from over 60 schools. CrestClean is a Bronze level Business Partner of HBPPA and has been involved in the conference for two years.
“It was great last year and it was even better this year, as people recognised me and remembered me from the year before and in a place like Hawkes Bay, it’s all about who you know and who you trust,” says Abby. “The president of the HBPPA is the principal of one of the schools we clean and he sings our praises and is a great advocate for us.”
CrestClean was one of 16 exhibitors and had a new, updated School Roll Banner, which now lists 262 schools cleaned by Crest, as a backdrop for the exhibition table. Abby was joined by CrestClean’s National Sales Manager Chris Barker, who helped give out information about cleaning services, samples of Crest products, and encouraged people to enter a draw to win a new 37-inch TV.

Franchisee Kamal Jeet Singh and Auckland Regional Director Dries Mangnus – the two have worked together for 12 years.
“I wouldn’t have been able to see the world,” says Kamal Jeet Singh, reflecting on his 12 years of owning a CrestClean franchise in Auckland. In that time, he’s been to India, Malaysia, Australia’s Gold Coast, home to his native Fiji at least 10 times and this year alone he’s had holidays in Hawaii, Melbourne, and back to Fiji again.
“Through Crest, I feel like such a successful person,” says the man who had just $50 in his pocket when he first learned about CrestClean. He’d relocated from Fiji to Auckland and, with financial help from an aunt, decided to purchase a CrestClean franchise.
“At the time, no one was interested in buying a cleaning business, but now it’s like a hotcake in the market,” he says of the competitive Auckland region, where CrestClean’s office is managed by Regional Director Dries Mangnus. View More >>
