Commercial manager joins window cleaning contractor
27 February 2017
National window cleaning contractor The Price Group has appointed Ray Kydd as commercial manager to further develop their current portfolio. Ray brings a wealth of industry knowledge and experience with him from his 33 years in the industry with positions at Central Window Cleaning, Initial, Lancaster and Interserve.
Ray has a passion for the window cleaning industry and brings to the group experience of working with large corporate businesses where he has a great track record in growth and efficiencies in service delivery.
The Price Group has grown from a family business started in 1980 by Joe Price when he saw a gap in the market for lorry mounted access platforms to be used in the window cleaning industry, to a national contractor with a team of over 100 people working from four locations (Gatwick, London, Hemel Hempstead and Birmingham) across the country. Even with the size of the business now, it still holds on to all of those family values and some of the current team have been with the business from the outset.
Charlie Price, MD of The Price Group, said: “Having known and worked with Ray for many years as a prominent member of the window cleaning industry, we felt he would be a great addition to the team and timing is everything: we have built an infrastructure over the last few years to be able grow and still give a great level of service. Ray’s key role will be develop new relationships and drive growth knowing that he will have the full support from our operations team.”
