Keith has over 50 years' experience in the cleaning industry, and from 2008 to 2016 was Director of EMEA Services for ISSA.
Keith has also been involved with the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association and helped with the introduction of accreditation schemes in the UK, designed to maintain high quality cleaning and hygiene standards throughout the marketplace.
