Derik Strickland

Derik works as a Century Link route cleaner and he is responsible for roughly 30 facilities throughout Colorado. On top of his regular schedule, he is always willing to help handle Priority 1 emergency calls. He has managed to run his route efficiently, keeping costs down while maintaining FBG standards. Thank You, Derik!

Aiza Laugerude

Aiza works at DePuy Synthes Manufacturing in Monument. It took a bit for Aiza to get orientated with the facility and its shift times, but once she settled in she let her cleaning strengths shine. In an environment that is changing, challenging, and in need of continuous upkeep, there is never a dull cleaning moment. Thank you, Aiza!

Sithong Inthavong

Sithong is part of our day staff at Level 3 Communication in Broomfield. She’s been there just over five years. Her supervisor stated she has been a strong team member and continues to shine daily. She helps set the cleaning bar at the facility and is always willing to raise her hand high to help, including working nights. Thank you, Sithong!

Wren Gray

Wren is responsible for nearly 30 Century Link locations throughout southeastern Colorado, As the route technician, he has a focus on quality.  Since most of these sites are several hours apart, doing the work right the first time is mandatory.  His work is exceeding our customer’s expectations. Thank you, Wren!

Innovation and Experimentation

Roger Montoya

Roger has not only trained new FBG team members at Express Scripts, but he knows most of our other Pueblo facility’s needs as well.  This gave him the foundation to train personnel, the insight into different standards, and knowledge which he now can share with others to ensure their success. Thank you, Roger!

Ethics and Integrity

Michael Austin

“Of all the accounts I oversee, the job he does is one of a kind,” said FBG Manager Lawrence Gardner. Michael works at the Roosevelt Charter School where his tasks vary from cleaning to painting, from landscaping to stripping floors, and from snow removal to being a handyman. From all of the children you serve, thank you, Mr. Mike!

People Development and Empowerment

James Hendrix

Jimi works at the Pikes Peak BOCES and School of Excellence and is loved by the staff and kids on campus. He values everyone and tries to make them feel part of the team. He took one team member under his wing and showed him the ropes so he could be successful. This was impressive to the client due to the language barrier that existed. Thank you, Jimi!

Joyce Haynes

Joyce works at the Verizon Wireless Data Center and is the “Go To” person. She has taken charge of the quality of the building, especially critical areas. Joyce trains the staff and makes sure they have a clear understanding of all tasks and expectations. She cross-trained her current co-worker and they make a fantastic team. Thank you, Joyce!

Stability and Growth

Donna Force

Donna’s great personality and willingness to help definitely plays a part in our continued success for our customer. Donna displays great communication skills between FBG management and the customer facilities department. The building is in excellent shape and everyone is working as a team. Thank you, Donna!

Roberto Espinoza

Roberto transferred to Denver from Pueblo to help our day staff at VISA. He assists in training new employees in not just the FBG Way, but the VISA way as well. His personality and work ethic are appreciated. The FBG staff all agree that he has helped bring stability and consistency to the program.
Thank you, Roberto!

Retha Hernandes

Retha services Pikes Peak Hospice. Her manager, Lawrence Gardner, has been asked by hospice staff, “What would we do without Retha?” She is loved by everyone including the property management company. Her performance has reflected so well on FBG that it may lead to new business! Thank you, Retha!
