Our Management Team
Take a look at what our Clean Planet Head Office Management team has to say about Clean Planet’s Cleaning Services, Franchises and their role within the Organisation.

As Chief Executive my role is to support and grow the team, both internally and externally. Clean Planet has been trading since 2008 and I am pleased to be involved with a vibrant and growing company. I have been with Clean Planet since 2013, and I am passionate about growing the Clean Planet brand and having it recognised as a company that genuinely cares for the environment and people’s health – that of our staff, Franchisees and customers. I especially enjoy working with our Franchisees and Master Franchisees, learning about them and their cultures and seeing them grow in their roles, improving their skills and expanding their business. When I am not at work I keep fit by riding my mountain bike, and often relax by playing one of my guitars [bass or electric 6 string], while over the summer weekends I will frequently be out on the water helping run the club sailing for a North Shore sailing club.

Tony Pattison
Chief Executive

The three things I enjoy most about working at Clean Planet are People, Philosophy and Variety. I like to work and help our franchisees grow into better business owners; build long term relationship with our clients and have new exciting challenges in the job (no one day is ever the same). I have been in the Commercial and Industrial Cleaning industry for over five years now. Starting from the ground level up, I've been able to gain valuable experience in what it takes to deliver the highest quality for our clients. Joining Clean Planet in 2016 my role in Operations entails assisting the growth of our Master Franchisees and local franchisees throughout the country. I am passionate about growing Clean Planet through the success of our franchisees, and helping and supporting the core operations of our company to ensure we are at the forefront of our industry. When not at work, I like to be outdoors, from long walks with my dog, swimming or gym. Anything to keep active. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Abhi Lal
National Commercial & Domestic Manager

I most like working for Clean Planet because I work with an amazing passionate team. We all truly believe in our work and what Clean Planet stands for. The company offers a great brand with a cost-effective approach to sustainability. This is what I believe is a win, win, win, for clients, franchisees and our amazing brand. My past experience in the service industry gives me the skills to be able to manage and grow our teams into prosperous successful franchisees which enhance their lives and lifestyles. My management of the national Grounds Care division and Car Valet division really is something I love doing. After 22 years of history in my last service business, primarily concentrating on Commercial and Domestic cleaning, it was time for a change, I felt like I had given what I had to this industry, and it was time to move on, to move forward and transition these skills over to my next business. One of which was in the fitness industry and the other in the gifting industry (e-commerce). I feel fortunate to also have the opportunity to give a lot of my energy to growing and developing my awesome Car Valet and Grounds Care division here at Clean Planet. Business development and Key Account Management are my true passions and I get to do this for my job. Yet again a win, win! The things I love to do in my spare time are, watch sports, see my friends, drink amazing wines, gym, swim, cycle, golf and most importantly, spend time with my amazing wife and 18 year- old son (who prefers hanging out with his mates, then his parents).
