2014 Governor’s Impact Award

Team Clean Founder Donna L. Allie, PhD., was awarded the 2014 Governor’s Entrepreneur Impact Award for the Southeast Division.

On May 30, 2014, Governor Tom Corbett recognized 50 outstanding Pennsylvania companies and entrepreneurs for creating jobs, developing ideas, reaching new markets and making positive contributions in local communities at the 2014 Governor’s ImPAct Awards.

Governor Corbett said, “Today, we honor the men and women who spend countless hours providing the leadership and care that it takes to run a successful and growing business. This recognition goes beyond the contributions made to Pennsylvania’s diverse and vibrant economy. Today, we celebrate Pennsylvanians who embody the American dream by taking risks, working hard and achieving success.”

The Governor’s ImPAct Awards recognized 50 companies in five categories: Jobs First, Community Impact, Small Business Impact, Entrepreneurial Impact and Export Impact. The awardees were chosen by an independent judging panel selected by the state’s partners, Team Pennsylvania Foundation (Team PA) and Journal Multimedia.

Team Clean was founded by Ms. Allie in 1989. Within two years, the company expanded into commercial cleaning, first focusing on offices with less than 1,000 square feet. Within ten years, Team Clean was contracted to clean major office spaces and event venues, including Veteran’s Stadium, and was named to the list of “Top 100 Businesses” by the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Team Clean has been built into one of the region’s largest, fastest-growing and most-honored minority-owned firms based on one rule: always provide unparalleled service to customers. As stated by Ms. Allie: “Our company provides an impeccable service that exceeds our customers’ expectations, and preserves and enhances the value in our customers’ assets. We provide our employees a means to achieve financial self-sufficiency, while helping them to build a stronger sense of family, ethics and business.”

Ms. Allie remains independent and hard-working, dedicated to building her business, improving the lives of her employees, and enhancing a growing, vibrant company headquartered in the City of Philadelphia. Her singular vision includes the goal of providing meaningful employment for over 3,000 men and women. That vision is powered by her passion for providing a re-entry to the workforce for the less fortunate, and comes from her own unique and compelling experiences both as an individual and as a business owner.

The Main Line Chamber of Commerce and Devereux Honor Donna Allie of Team Clean, Inc. with Fourth Annual Helena Devereux Women in Leadership Award


The Main Line Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Devereux, is proud to announce the winner of the 2012 Gold Leaf Celebration’s Helena Devereux Women in Leadership Award, Donna Allie of Team Clean, Inc. The Helena Devereux Women in Leadership Award was created to recognize exceptional female executives in the Greater Main Line Region. Candidates for this award are senior-level executives who have demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities, business excellence, a commitment to community service and a dedication to the advancement of all employees.

Donna is the president and founder of Team Clean, a leading provider of janitorial services in the Greater Philadelphia region. A single parent, Donna began cleaning houses after she was unable to find a career in her chosen field after graduation from college to support herself and her child. It was then that she realized there was an opportunity in the cleaning industry and began recruiting other women who were in situations similar to her own to clean homes in pairs. After landing her first commercial contract in the mid-1908s, Donna launched the company Team Clean, Inc. as a solo entrepreneur. Since then, Donna has guided the company’s growth to more than 700 employees and over $18 million in sales. Team Clean has been recognized as the #1 ranked Minority-Owned Business and the #2 ranked Woman-Owned Business reported in the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Previous winners of The Helena Devereux Women in Leadership Award have included Linda Galante, Partner in Business Development and Board Director at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young LLP; Irene Horstmann Hannan, Senior Vice President in Commercial Banking for Citizens Bank in 2010; and Andrea Gilbert, President of Bryn Mawr Hospital in 2009. The woman, for whom the award is named, Helena Devereux, was a schoolteacher in the early 1900s when she left Philadelphia and moved to the Main Line to launch one of the nation’s first private schools for children with special needs. As a female entrepreneur at the turn of the century, she fought through many gender inequality obstacles and helped pave the road for future generations of professional women.

Donna will be honored at the Main Line Chamber’s Gold Leaf Celebration & Luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 27 at the Philadelphia Country Club.
