The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners has welcomed Gary Fage as its new Master after his installation ceremony on Friday 17th of September.
WCEC members attended the installation ceremony at St Olave’s church as the mantle of Master was handed over to Fage from John Shonfeld.
Fage has been a WCEC member for 20 years, and closely involved with most WCEC committees for the past three years. He was appointed the Master Elect by the Court of the Company last February.
He is particularly committed to supporting the WCEC’s newest programme, the Chartered Practitioners in Environmental Cleaning and says: “I’m so proud to be elected as the new Master of the WCEC. I will do as much as I can to build the momentum of its chartership programme to raise our industry’s standing, support our workforce, and build a recognised community of cleaning industry professionals that command the respect they deserve. The WCEC has an important role to play in making that happen for our industry.”
Fage has had a long and successful career in the cleaning industry, and is now the Managing Director of Janitorial Express and a Director of Jangro Group. Gary brings with him a passion and commitment to cultivate more efficient and environmentally-friendly practices in the UK’s cleaning and hygiene industries. These elements already guide the direction of his own business, supplying eco-friendly cleaning products. He hopes to encourage his peers to embrace circular economy and C2C practices, ultimately growing a more sustainably focused culture within the cleaning industry.
