I have decades of experience in the cleaning industry. Starting at a young age, I worked in the family’s carpet cleaning business established in 1937 by my grandfather. After college and under my father’s leadership, the business grew to be the largest independently owned company of its kind in the country. serving all of California and Arizona. I grew into the role of Vice President, responsible for all commercial business, servicing high-rise buildings, banks, colleges and other institutions. In 1985, the business was sold to Electrolux, a subsidiary of Sara Lee Corporation. I moved to Sacramento and founded a full-service commercial janitorial company, which I eventually sold to a large national company where I worked as a branch and regional manager.
In 1992, I started a regional swimming pool construction and service business my wife continues to operate.
I believe the key to success in business is building strong relationships with clients and co-workers. I celebrate the clients and friends in the industry that I have enjoyed for over 30 years. United has these same core values which I believe is just one reason for its success.
I enjoy horses, golf, baseball and spending as much time as possible with our 7 children and 16 grandchildren.
