Our History

Nick Iloski, Glad’s Managing Director, migrated to Australia in 1984 and began his career as a cleaner. Even with limited knowledge of the English language, he was a dedicated employee who was always open to learn and eager to grow. He was a hard worker who ensured that he always provided the best service to customers and his passion for the job earned him a promotion to Supervisor and later to Site Manager. It was not long before a client recognised his potential and suggested that he establishes his own business. Nick seized the opportunity and together with his wife, Lucy, they established their cleaning company in Sydney in 1989.

It became the Glad Group, a company that would grow into offering more than just cleaning services, but a whole range of tailored solutions for our clients. Nick diversified with the market, offering maintenance services, security services and concierge. By integrating our approach, he found the company could offer better value and higher standards to our clients. We’ve lived by that tenet ever since. Today, the Glad Group has more than 2,500 people in its employment family, providing cleaning, security, maintenance, concierge, environmental and integrated services to over 250 properties all around Australia.
