Before launching Spectrum Building Maintenance Company in 1997, Dave Jones was the manager of a fast-growing, successful building maintenance company. As his management and problem-solving skills were recognized, he was rapidly promoted from a part-time position to Operations Manager for the entire company, with responsibility of over 50 buildings and numerous employees. After a number of years experience in the industry, he left in 1997 to start his own company. He resolved to personally supervise each account, to personally select and train his employees, and to personally follow-up on all needs or problems with his clients. He has continued this level of personal attention with Spectrum’s janitorial cleaning services for the last 13 years.
Dave Jones grew up in a family which owned a construction and land development company, and he joined the family business after he graduated college with a degree in Construction Design and Engineering. He worked as one of two field managers overseeing the construction, contractors, and crews for up to 100 homes at a time on the west coast of Florida. After a year of graduate school in Chicago and an internship in Phoenix, he decided to relocate to Arizona in 1978 where he started his own concrete finishing business. Besides being a leader in the companies he worked for or started, he has been recognized as a leader and teacher in the churches he has attended both in Florida and Arizona.
An avid backpacker for the last 30 years, Dave loves Arizona and the Southwest and the beauty of God’s creation. Dave lives in central Phoenix with his lovely wife of 34 years, Beccy and has two grown children, Michael and Kelsey.
