Stuart Sugden, Owner

Originally from a small town in England, Stuart has resided in the U.S. for longer than he lived in his homeland. He started transforming people’s windows in 1988, drumming up business by knocking on doors in Mill Valley. Positive client responses led him to advertising in the Yellow Pages, and he quickly developed a significant clientele base – both residential and commercial.

The last 33 years have seen a steady expansion of Stuart’s services, workforce and clientele. With 8-10 full time workers, a full portfolio of home and commercial cleaning services, and a loyal clientele base throughout the greater Bay Area, Stuart and A-1 The Clear Choice have come a long way since those door-knocking days in Mill Valley!

In addition to a passion for the service industry and bringing joy to his clients, Stuart also enjoys learning languages and traveling to England, Italy and South East Asia during the company’s quiet season. He’s proficient in Spanish, French, and Italian and has studied Latin, Hebrew, Russian and German. He also plays a mean game of racquetball (which helps him keep fit, since he doesn’t clean as many windows these days!)
