Corey Chittenden: Project Manager/Estimator
Corey came to AdvantaClean of Monroe after working with Lyle in the corporate world for 10 years. He holds the same customer service philosophies as Lyle and is able to incorporate them into his daily duties. Corey is originally from Orange County California, but now resides with his family in Charlotte. Corey is from Ventura County, California. Attended Ventura College majoring in Psychology, California and UNC Charlotte majoring in Biology. For my prior jobs, I’ve helped manage a movie theatre and I’ve been a letter carrier for USPS, a mental health worker at 3 different metal health facilities, a corrections officer, a probation officer, and I worked in a variety of positions at Tiffany & Co. including Security Supervisor and Operations Coordinator. Corey is OSHA 10 and confined space certified and his favorite part about working for AdvantaClean is meeting different people every day, from different places, different backgrounds and cultures, all with different stories.
Corey says that the most rewarding part of his job is seeing someone who calls us because they concerned for the health of their family say that they can really tell that what we’ve done has made a difference. Sometimes before we’ve even left people have said their home smells better, they feel they are breathing easier and feeling better in general. It is rewarding to know that you’re a part of something that improves people’s quality of life in some way.
Quinn Cooper- Project Manager / Estimator
Quinn is from Matthews, NC and has lived in Union County for most of his life. He went to Weddington High School and graduated from Western Carolina University with a Bachelor in Business Management. He has worked many part time jobs while in school, but AdvantaClean is the first company to give me the chance to prove my skills full time in the workplace.
When Quinn interviewed with AdvantaClean, he saw a great opportunity to help better the quality of people’s lives, while at the same time maximizing the opportunities for success in his career. He liked the fact that the job would keep him active and engaged throughout the day. But above all, he could tell that AdvantaClean is a business that considers integrity to be the most important aspect of running a business.
Quinn's favorite part of his job is getting to meet different people in different situations. "Sometimes estimates are a lot like detective work. I have to ask questions and do some digging to find the source of the problem. Then I get to suggest a solution and explain why AdvantaClean’s solution is the best way to solve the problem."
