The VIP Team

***** Scroll down and meet the VIP family *****

Ben and Gary Auker - Founders & CEO's

VIP Cleaning York is a family created cleaning company in York founded by identical twin brothers,  Ben and Gary. They both achieved a '1st' BA degree in business and management and completed the highest training in domestic cleaning standards. The brothers have come from a guest relations management background within 4* and 5* hotels in York and now use their vast knowledge of creating the very best customer experience and satisfaction within their own high end cleaning company, while offering highly competitive rates which are more affordable than many of their competitors. They pride their company on providing a VIP service without the VIP price tag.

Fun fact about the twins: They both have the exact same dreams (being on stage juggling, back at school but don't know their lesson plan or being really good ice skaters) and frequently on the exact same night. SPOOKY! They can also wobble their eyes... twins are strange creatures.

Ellie - VIP Housekeeper

Ellie started working in hospitality in 2009 while at college studying an art and design course. She worked as a room attendant for a while and then a housekeeping supervisor for a while longer. She left England to travel and cleaned her way across Australia and New Zealand. Ellie worked in motel campsites in the middle of nowhere, fancy 5-star hotels in the city and everything else in between. She worked for herself and others cleaning air bnb properties and family homes. Ellie is now pleased (we like to think ecstatic!) to be part of the VIP Cleaning York family. 

Fun fact about Ellie - She can solve a Rubik's cube in 60 seconds... so she says! But after a few drinks, she can barely solve it at all!

Antonella - VIP Housekeeper

Antonella has worked in housekeeping for many years with a long stint of 4 years at the 4* Principal hotel in York city centre, which is surely the reason why her bed making skills are so impeccable! Antonella is now pleased (we like to think thrilled!) to be part of the VIP Cleaning York family.

Fun fact about Antonella- Her pet cat very much enjoys playing inside her work bag... maybe she wants to help clean (as long as she doesn't want paying!)

Claire - VIP Housekeeper

A few of the areas Claire has worked in over the years include admin, education sector, owning her own beauty business and retail management. Claire has also worked in hospitality, housekeeping and domestic cleaning within private homes and residential accommodation. Claire is now pleased (we like to think overjoyed!) to be part of the VIP Cleaning York family.

Fun fact about Claire- She is the owner of the biggest lippy collection imaginable. She is hardly ever seen without it on! (we suggested black to match our branding...  we doubt that will happen!)

Connor- VIP Housekeeper

Connor moved to the UK from South Africa in 2018 and has worked in hospitality ever since, including a long stint within the housekeeping department at a children's outdoor activity centre.  Connor is now pleased (we like to think overwhelmed!) to be part of the VIP Cleaning York family.

Fun fact about Connor- He once became stranded on a beach at high tide so ending up camping for the entire night in a sea cave! We're just glad that he didn't sleep with the fishes!
