Alec Shaw


Alec is a Maine native having grown up on Peaks Island and graduating from Portland High School. Before starting Swift Cleaning he spent ten years in management working in the mining industry both in Colorado and Wyoming. His last position was Superintendent of Operations. He then left mining and started a commercial cleaning company based in Colorado. In the first year of business the company was able to grow from 2 employees to 17 employees and increase revenue by 5000 percent.

     But the desire to return to Maine was always there and with a young family he knew it was time. He and his wife sold the business and moved to Biddeford.
