BriteWorks, Inc.

Anita Ron is the President of BriteWorks, Inc., a minority, women owned corporation, established her business in 1996, after being laid off because of downsizing.

For many, it was inconceivable that starting a business would be possible, while juggling a hectic schedule as a mom of a six-year-old daughter and a six-month-old son.  Yet, with only $700.00, three vacuum cleaners, and a lot of determination, Ms. Ron successfully launched BriteWorks, Inc. Two decades later, Ms. Ron has three children and employs 200 associates who provide comprehensive commercial and industrial janitorial services, throughout the State of California.  Ms. Ron credits her Company’s success to a commitment to be customer service driven by consistently providing a clean, healthy environment for her clients.  Her positive can-do attitude has positioned her Company as a place where clients can obtain tailor-made cleaning solutions, such as general cleaning, floor care, graffiti removal, pressure washing, and transit/bus cleaning.  BriteWorks has provided cleaning service for Superbowl 56, 57 and 58.

Ron was profiled by the Small Business Administration (SBA) SCORE as a SCORE Success Story.  She is a graduate of the University of La Verne.  Participated in University of Stanford LBAN (Latino Business Action Network) Program, USC (University of Southern California) Multicultural Leadership Program, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Alumni, and UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles) Management Development Entrepreneur program.

Ron has continuously volunteered in social clubs such as the West Covina Lions Club and the YWCA of San Gabriel.  She has served as the organization’s president for one term.  She has worked countless hours towards eliminating racism, empowering women, and putting an end to domestic violence.  She also served as President of the West Covina Chamber of Commerce and was on the West Covina Chamber Board of Director.  While a member of the Latin Business Association, Ron served on the board for five years. She continues to be a strong supporter for the communities she serves and a strong advocate for small businesses.
