Richard Allen


The first fifteen years of my working life were spent in the photographic industry. I very quickly realised my talents and interest did not lie in the dark rooms and on printing machines but dealing with clients. The sales training and experience I gained over those years have stood me in very good stead in the cleaning industry as the principles are very much the same in both industries, firstly listen to your clients and then do what you say you will do!

I was really attracted to the cleaning industry and I was lucky enough to meet my co director John Williams and we had similar aspirations and together with a great team of people the business has gone from strength to strength.

The cleaning industry is as exciting now as it was when John and I first started working together over 30 years ago. Every office building needs the services we are offering and that will never change.

My personal passions after Swift, still include photography – primarily of my twin granddaughters and my family. I train most days to stay fit for business and the challenges it brings but I am also a keen participant in motosport.
