Xcel is an Australian business, owned by my good friend and mentor Brad Wood and operated by myself, Isaac - not to mention our hard working team!
After finishing my HSC in northern NSW, I worked with a master cabinet maker and builder who taught me the three very important lessons for work and life. Work hard with integrity, appreciate detail and ‘always work for those in front of you’, what he meant was, always do a quality job with forethought for those who work after you, be it clients, trades or services. These lessons have always served me well in my working life and is what I bring to Xcel.
After moving to the Gold Coast I started working with Brad on some of his cleaning contracts, where I transferred my eye for detail and hard work to the cleaning industry. In this time working with Brad, I developed a real respect for him as I witnessed his value for people, integrity and generosity in all his dealings with clients and workers. Its there that I learnt to operate a successful business that values people, quality and integrity. Over time as business grew, I began to manage our workers and contracts. To date I am privileged to manage Xcel as a whole.
With the changes to Workplace Heath and Safety across all industries in Australia, Brad and I saw that to remain as a successful and compliant business that we had to up skill in this area. I successfully completed my Cert 4 in WHS and later went on to complete my Diploma in WHS. The roll out of safety in our business had it's challenges but was definitely worth it. Ensuring the safety of the team and our clients is high priority. Up skilling in WHS proved especially timely as businesses now engaging contractors for works need to ensure whoever they hire is compliant.
For the future Brad and I want to provide the highest quality office cleaning service on the Gold Coast / Tweed Coast and grow with our clients.
