Fred Hodge Jr.  –  President & Founder

Graduated from Freehold High School in 2002 and Rowan University in 2006 with a BA degree in Entrepreneurship. Clearview Window Washing, LLC launched March 29, 2004. I was a 19-year-old kid, who had a ’95 Ford Taurus with a ladder rack and a bucket with squeegees. With constant reinvesting and education we have stayed technologically advanced in an effort to be the most efficient, safest, and provide the best results.
 
I oversee 20 employees in our office, sales, and operations departments. I am truly blessed to have such an amazing team.  I am a passionate entrepreneur who loves his family, friends, and customers and helping others.
 
On a personal note, I grew up in Freehold and currently reside in Little Silver with my wife Christine, daughter Gabriella and son Billy. I truly enjoy all sports, great food, and traveling! 

Fred Hodge Sr.  –  Sales Supervisor & Founder

Graduated from CUNY in 1979 with a B.A.in Economics. I was in Commercial Banking for 24 years, holding various positions in Commercial Loan Departments, working my way up to the Vice President position. Although successful in the corporate world, I had the entrepreneur itch and I formed the LLC back in 2004, as a window washing company.
 
My son Freddie, who was in college at the time, helped on the weekends and Summers. After leaving college, he worked full time in window washing, before we incorporated power washing as one of our additional services. In 2013 we again added another product to our repertoire- Soft Washing, which has become a huge part of our business. In the ensuing 7 years, I have become the Sales Supervisor, hiring three additional salespeople to help us attain both residential and commercial clients.
 
It’s been fun and rewarding to watch us grow from the tiniest of startups to a six crew company.

Christine Hodge – Chief Executive Officer

I’ve been with Clearview for three years. Prior to Clearview Washing, I worked in patent litigation and legal operations at Sandoz Pharmaceuticals. I enjoy streamlining processes to promote growth and efficiency and I love working with a team with such diverse professional backgrounds.

For fun, I like gardening, caring for my little ones, traveling, and the beach.

Becoming the CEO, it has truly been an honor for my team to trust my capabilities in that role. This is truly like a fine-tuned machine.  On a grand scale, everything runs so efficiently, and if something breaks down, everyone goes into a problem-solving mode to get the job done.  It takes a village and we have that here at Clearview.

Steve Hodge – Field Operations Manager

I have been with Clearview Washing for 10 years, managing a group of hard-working/ dedicated employees makes my job easy. Especially with me being very detail-oriented. 
 
For fun, I Playing sports, workout, trying new restaurants. I am definitely a thrill seeker. Any type of speed or heights related things I love.
 
The memorable memory of Clearview is when the company first began in 2004 (without me knowing) and my dad and brother dragging me along with them to do one of Clearview’s first jobs, having no idea what we were doing. Yes, every year Clearview is growing and expanding our team and I enjoy being part of it.

Maria Hodge –  Office Manager

I’ve been working with Clearview part-time on/off during the last 16 years. Prior to that, I was a furniture buyer for both McGraw-Hill and Chase Bank and a coordinator for before and afterschool programs with MOESC and then with Champions. 
 
I enjoy the job and I really enjoy speaking with the customers when they first call. Sometimes they are old friends/neighbors and we really enjoy catching up.  I also like when the schedule fits like a puzzle piece and that makes the customer happy, especially if they need a specific date. 
 

For fun, Fred and I like to spend time with our friends.  We like to try new restaurants, a winery on Friday nights, and beach get-togethers at sunset. And most importantly, sending time with family.  We have 2 beautiful grandchildren and they bring a lot of happiness into our lives. Fun being a grandparent! No matter what is going on in my life I always put family first and I think that is pretty cool. I love using my creative side and enjoy crocheting, trying new recipes, gardening, reading and just puttering around the house.

It’s been a great ride. Many years ago we hired a window cleaner and he did not call or show up. This triggered the idea and so the story began.

 

Dolores Campbell – Administrative Assistant 

I have been with Clearview Washing for a little over four months now. Prior to that, I worked as an executive assistant for a large Burger King franchisee for over 20 years. The best part about my job is speaking with our customers, scheduling their appointments, and assisting with any questions they may have for us.  I am thrilled to be a part of such a dedicated, hard-working team.
 
For fun, I always enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  I like to read, go hiking, take long walks and I especially enjoy playing with and caring for my baby granddaughter. I became a grandma for the first time last year and am embracing every precious moment!
 
I think what is most memorable at Clearview is when customers thank me for my help.  It gives me such a great feeling of satisfaction that I was able to assist them.  I truly enjoy my daily interactions with customers very much. We truly have a dream team, does it feel good knowing that their is support/competency/reliability in the field performing the physical work and also in both the sales and office departments. Yes, I am so happy and privileged to have the support of such a wonderful group of co-workers.  Our team is awesome, friendly, and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the business, and any questions I have are always answered quickly without hesitation.
