Community Builders & Connectors: Fantastic Female Leaders at CSG

CSG proudly invests in the hiring, training and development of women in the commercial cleaning and maintenance industry.

Women’s History Month takes place in March and celebrates women’s contributions to history, culture, the economy and society throughout time. At CSG, over half of the executive team are women and professional contributions are celebrated every day of the year. It takes a village to start and successfully run a small business. This team at CSG has over 15 years of experience in commercial cleaning and maintenance for urban environments, transit hubs, and special districts.

Katie joined the CSG team in 2020 after her retail job ended due to the store’s closure during the pandemic. New to the commercial cleaning and maintenance industry, Katie immersed herself in the business and serves as the CSG “Swiss Army Knife.” Ready for anything and always willing to learn new skills, her role includes organizing and connecting clients, vendors and applicants, and sometimes even shoveling snow.

Work in the public realm is by its very nature ever-changing and work at CSG is no different. To provide exceptional maintenance for Denver’s public places, round-the-clock clean teams patrol the streets and spaces. CSG Clean Teams led by Gloria and Keke pick up trash, sweep, disinfect, and remove graffiti among other custodial services year-round, in all types of weather.

Commercial cleaning and maintenance requires extraordinary responsiveness to the environment such as weather, in addition to activities and persons utilizing the public space. CSG supports Denver’s 16th Street Mall, Five Points Business Improvement District and RTD transit stations, all of which are very popular areas of the city. The ability to respond to urgent needs as well as carry on with planned cleaning and maintenance takes teamwork.
