Conversations with ATX Leaders: Ivan Geraldo

For some sectors of the workforce things have remained somewhat business as usual.  In many ways that is the case for Ivan Geraldo, President of Cleanscapes. As his crews follow each city’s guidelines to stay safe and respect social distancing, Ivan is passionate about making sure his employees welfare is top priority.  With daily check ins with each team member, Ivan reminds us the value of teamwork and trust.


With a keen awareness of the value of teamwork, Ivan shares how he tried to make some decisions collectively. But at times like this, “someone has to take the lead.” “We are having teaching and learning conversations with our clients.” Ivan shares, realizing that how people approach his industry will change through the course of COVID-19.


The world is bombarded with so many channels of communication for the ever-changing pandemic information. It can be difficult to know who to listen to. Join us as Ivan recommends “choose wisely but choose one” consistent stream for information.


“I know that if it wasn’t for my faith and how this company was created,” shared Ivan, “we wouldn’t have this strong base for our business.” Through this season, people will be emotionally impacted.  Our communities will experience economic impact. This pandemic has created so many logistical challenges. Yet Ivan reminds us of the need for “guidance and wisdom” and the importance of “maintaining and clear and level mind.”
