Puerto Rican Businessman Honored by Small Business Association

SAN JUAN – The president and CEO of Prime Janitorial Service, Fernando Rodriguez, was honored with the Small Businessperson of the Year award by the Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands office of the U.S. Small Business Administration.

The organization announced Wednesday in a statement that SBA administrator Maria Contreras presented Rodriguez with the award during the celebration of Small Business Week in Washington.

Specializing in industrial cleaning and maintenance services and with 900 employees, Prime Janitorial Service offers services to hotels, hospitals, universities and federal and state agencies.

Rodriguez launched the company in 1999 in Ponce, Puerto Rico, with an investment of $50,000 while he was a student and today it bills more than $6 million per year.

“With an entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to Puerto Rico, we celebrate the recognition received and reaffirm our determination to continue contributing to our country’s development, particularly in these times of great challenges we’re facing in all sectors,” said Rodriguez after receiving the prize.

The company recently began operations in the Dominican Republic as part of its international expansion strategy.

During his professional career, Rodriguez has received assorted honors, including the SBA’s Young Businessman of the Year award, the Teodoro Moscoso 2014 prize and the 2014 CEIBA Award for Industry of the Year from the Southern Chamber of Commerce of Puerto Rico.

Recently, the Southwestern Industrial Association honored Rodriguez with the 2016 Service Sector Executive of the Year award.
