PHILIP BELL - Founder
Philip Bell, started his window cleaning business in 1973 with the intention of earning enough money to finish college. But with a growing family, the funds were never quite there for school, so he decided to grow his business. In 1989, he hired his first employee and the business has grown since then. After their children were all grown and out of the house, his wife Kathy joined him in running their operation.
Over time, Phil no longer cleaned windows unless it was absolutely necessary, but spent his work days managing the operations. From April to November, he spent much of his time providing potential clients quotes for cleaning windows at their homes or businesses. The rest of the time was spent making daily decisions, talking on the phone with clients and vendors, managing employees and training new workers.
After more than 44 years operating Bell Window Cleaning, Inc. Phil decided to retire. On December 29, 2017, Philip Bell and Christopher Lee signed a Purchase & Sale Agreement for the transfer of ownership to Chris as the new owner, president and operator of Bell Window Cleaning/Lee Maintenance Services, Inc. All operations will continue seamlessly with the same business name, phone numbers and mailing address.
CHRISTOPHER LEE - President/Office Manager
Chris comes from a cleaning family and has worked for janitorial and window cleaning companies since he was a teenager. His dad ran Busy Lee Window Cleaning in the Concord area from the 60's to the 90's.
Chris started with Bell in 1999 as a route window cleaner. As our residential clientele grew, Philip Bell found it impossible to keep up with his work load in the office, so he asked Chris to help him scheduling. Chris has been innovative in helping BWC develop its organization and procedures over the years. Chris sits at his desk every day with phone and computer to schedule the hundreds of clients who call to have their windows cleaned. Chris has taken on more administrative duties over the years and in 2017 took over the bookkeeping from Phil's wife Kathy who had retired.
Chris is now the new owner of Bell Window Cleaning and promises to continue the high quality of service BWC's clients expect.
STEVE CHANDLER - Vice President/Field Manager
Steve started working at Bell in the spring of 2002. Though he had no window cleaning experience, he learned his skills well and quickly rose up the ranks. Steve is a hard worker who knows how to treat customers with respect. We have gotten many requests for Steve to return to previous years’ customers.
In 2016, Steve replaced our long time store front window cleaner, Paul Rilko, who retired for health reasons. Steve is busy cleaning all our route customers’ windows from Nashua to Tilton. Steve is a true asset to our operation. With Christopher Lee now being the president of BWC, Steve has moved up to Vice President of the corporation and will continue to provide a lot of energy to the operation.
