I started in this industry in 1978 back in Michigan cleaning carpets, then went into a school district and worked my way up through the ranks to over see the cleaning and maintenance of an elementary school. Moved out to Northern California in 1985 were I accepted a position with a National Commercial Cleaning Company and over saw the night operations. Then accepted a position with a Window Cleaning Company in 1990 as their Vice President of Marketing. In 1991 I started a company along with a business partner and grew that company then sold it in 1992. Then went to work for one of the largest National Cleaning Companies. I worked my way up to their Regional Manager. In 2002 I decided to venture out again but on my own this time. United Building Maintenance turned into a multi million-dollar company after it's 2nd year of business. I believe the success of the company is putting the employees first. If you have happy employees, it shows in their work and ultimately your clients are pleased as well. Second would be placing our time in retention of the client’s not new sales. Our growth has been through word of mouth from one client to another. My roll in the company is to serve each employee with what ever their need may be. To always be accessible, I am a hands on business owner but I do not micro manage! This company would not be where it is today with out the employees from the front line right up to upper management. I will always remember how we got here and I will always take care of them along the way. I want to thank our clients for their loyalty and making us part of their team.
Rito Gutierrez was hired at United in 2007 as a night supervisor and due to such an array of experience was promoted to an account manager within a short time. He started out as a janitor back in 1990 and then went into carpets, floors and some maintenance work. His knowledge of all aspects of the industry has proved to be a perfect fit for his position as an account manager.
