Ryan Wilkins began his career in Brevard County as a .golf professional. However, he learned quickly while playing with prominent businessmen that there was a big need for service-based businesses in Florida to cater to the needs of the retirement community. Wilkins also recognized the need and an excellent opportunity for himself and his future. After much research and some “learning for labor” time spent with a highly credentialed roof cleaner on the west coast of Florida, he started Beacon Roof & Exterior Cleaning. He prides himself on providing exceptional customer service, quality roof and exterior cleaning along with a desirable place to work for his employees.
Wilkins feels strongly about staying positive and sends motivational messages to his team on a daily basis. He has created a family work environment where everyone takes care of each other and, in turn, take care of the customers. While the company started nine years ago as a strictly residential pressure washing and roof-cleaning operation, Beacon Roof & Exterior Cleaning has evolved into a full-service commercial maintenance business that focuses on the specific needs of each client’s property.
Beacon Roof & Exterior Cleaning provides a wide array of cleaning services to commercial and residential properties in Central Florida, including Harris Corporation, Brevard Public Schools, Satcom Direct, Health First, Viera Children’s Academy and several Hilton and Marriott properties.
Wilkins enjoys the personal scheduling freedom being an entrepreneur has provided him, but what keeps him going each day are the reward and fulfillment he experiences from the fruits of his labor.
