Part of the Hamilton operation, Michael has responsibility for much of United Cleaning Service’s outdoor operations like water-blasting and cleaning for building facades, windows, roofs and paths, as well as supervising several of the company’s client sites.
“If it means working at heights or involves getting very wet, I’m the one most likely to be looking after the assignment – in between learning the management aspects of the business,” says Michael, who graduated with a BSc, before joining the family owned business.
“At the end of the day, it is a family owned business and it is particularly enjoyable to be involved with something that has been built up slowly over time – it’s part of the family legacy, and that creates a good environment to be involved in.”
Michael believes that United Cleaning Service’s management structure helps to set it apart from the its competitors. “We’re an extremely responsive business. There is always a senior person on call and problems or challenges are dealt with as soon as they arise.”
