Founder & CEO
Saudia Davis is the Founder and CEO of GreenHouse Eco-Cleaning (B-Corp), an green office, buildings and homes cleaning company servicing the New York Metro area. A graduate of Bowdoin College, Saudia first honed her customer service expertise working as a movie publicist alongside such celebrities as Reese Witherspoon, Matt Dillon, Daniel Day Lewis and others. When her grandmother -- a professional cleaner -- passed away likely due to her lifelong exposure to toxic cleaning chemicals, Saudia was inspired to create an eco-friendly cleaning company that would provide her clients and cleaning specialists with a service and profession that was safe and healthy for the environment.
The early success of her venture was assured as the 2011 winner of the American Express OPEN Make Mine A Million $ business program. She is a graduate of the Kauffman Foundation’s Fast Trac program and Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses.
Politically, Saudia sits on New York State Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s Small Business and MWBE Subcommittees, and is an active member of the White House Business Council. Saudia is also a member of New York’s Young Entrepreneur Council, and The Entrepreneurs Organization, an international group of leading entrepreneurs. She also volunteers for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE).
Creatively, she contributes to HGTV Magazine and pens monthly blogs for the Huffington Post Small Business and Home sections and her cleaning expertise and sustainable business practices have been featured in a variety of publications, including The New York Times, Martha Stewart’s Whole Living, Creative Living, The Wall Street Journal, Crain’s NY, Bloomberg Business, The Economist, Fortune Magazine, NY 1 and ABC World News with Diane Sawyer.
GreenHouse Eco-Cleaning is the proud recipient of the 2012 Black Enterprise Small Business People's Choice Award, New York Magazine’s “Best of NY” award, and Angie’s List Super Service award.
