Troy Hopkins, CBSE Acceptance Statement:
"Receiving the Walter L. Cook award is not only a huge honor but also it represents what my peers in the BSCAI family and I strive to accomplish on a daily basis – to share and teach what this great industry has to offer. I have always believed that the more I can help others grow in their commercial cleaning business, the more we all benefit. It has never bothered me to share my knowledge of the industry with other companies, because there is enough business for us all. It’s how you go about getting that business, and how you treat your employees, that makes the difference. We must work together to change the image of the cleaning industry and demonstrate to our customers why they must increase their budgets for our services, so that we can keep up with the changing times. As we work within this great association, BSCAI, to develop educational programs, committees and host events, let’s keep our eye on the ultimate goal: to be the leader among service industries."
