A catalyst for positive change

Meet Mike

 

During my 30 years in the professional cleaning industry, I have worked in the commercial cleaning industry for and with manufacturers, distributors, and small to medium-size building service contractors (BSCs). I have also worked with in-house, unionized custodial staffs of K-12 schools, universities, colleges, and other large, complex venues.

I have experienced—and solved for—the challenges faced by each of these sectors. I meet these challenges with enthusiasm, assessing the specific situation then developing an integrated and comprehensive plan to move from where we are to where we want to go. I map our route using my experiences, knowledge, and skills in the science of cleaning and disinfecting, team building, strategizing, and engineering company cultures. Once the plans are in place, I tenaciously help clients implement them.

 

I am a senior operation, sales, and business-development leader who enhances efficiency, productivity, and bottom lines. I am a critical and analytical thinker, complex problem-solver, and creative and decisive decision-maker. As a catalyst for positive change, my entrepreneurial drive delivers swift value and “mission-critical” results supported by the development of performance-driven people and teams.

 

My bachelor’s degree in business administration is from Brock University and my MBA is from McMaster University. I graduated from UL University’s Lean Sigma Green Belt Training, which included mastering Lean and Six Sigma methodology, and I am a Cleaning Industry Management Standard-ISSA Certified Expert

Mike came highly recommended, so I contacted him, and I am happy I did. I explained my company and situation to Mike. He outlined what he could do to assist and provided me with a detailed action plan. He executed the plan flawlessly, on time, and on budget. Most importantly, he used his industry knowledge and coaching and training skills to develop and deliver value in many areas of the company. He provided a practical, cost-effective plan that could be immediately executed to build more credible landing pages and generate more traffic to our website. He also provided a methodology to nurture qualified leads and convert them to sales.

"In 1998 when ISO Cleaning Solutions was formed, I was the Canadian Manager of Purchasing responsible for cleaning supplies for Sodexo, a multi-billion-dollar, international company. In dealing with Mike, it became quickly very clear that he was very professional and tenacious. He easily demonstrated his ability to learn what we required by his listening skills and knowledge, then presented his solution and the added value ISO can provide. From there, he marshaled the necessary resources to execute the deliverables and solve any issues as they arose. We were ISO’s first customer, and Sodexo still remains a customer in 2012, built on the solid foundation Mike developed. Mike’s negotiation and contract development skills are evident, he is very organized and detail-oriented, builds solid relationships easily, and communicates very effectively."

I have worked with Mike on 2 different occasions, and both times Mike has proven himself to be a true leader, visionary and reliable. Mike has always possessed the ability to seek out new business partners with an eye on future growth, even when those around him could not. His commitment to excellence and team is second to none and he leaves nothing to chance. I have always felt Mike was an honest hard-working individual that you could count on to be on the level with you, didn't mince words, but never made one feel uncomfortable in their role with the company. Hard working, focused, decisive, creative and fair are just a few words to describe Mike. It was a pleasure to work with Mike. He is a consummate professional!

One would be hard-pressed to find an individual that is more knowledgeable or enthusiastic in the Jan/San market. Mike's ability to promote not only Enviro-Solutions but the philosophy of "green" is second to none. Whether he is speaking to a room full of industry people or demonstrating a product to a handful of custodians Mike's energy is hard to match. Mike's attention to detail has always been appreciated as has his ability to problem solve. I have always enjoyed working with Mike throughout these past few years.

Mike is incredibly strategic, driven, trusted, passionate, organized and exceptionally knowledgeable regarding cleaning products and this industry.

Mike was the architect of Superior Propane’s Partner Program, a strategic initiative with national scope. As a member of Mike’s team, I observed his ability to construct and launch a new sales marketing system that was enthusiastically embraced by sales professionals. This achievement highlights important qualities about Mike that include an ability to fully assess the competitive environment and design a strategy necessary to deliver on corporate goals. Mike also succeeds because of a unique laser-like and unstoppable drive to execute planned strategies on budget and prior to deadline. These are great qualities in any manager but should be viewed in the context that Mike is an individual of high integrity and ultimately focused on ensuring the best solution is delivered to the market. Mike also establishes clear direction and provides continuous support and encouragement to the individuals working with him. Mike moves mountains and delivers!

Every company has a brand, whether they make it a priority or not. Mike brings that to the forefront. A brand is what makes people think about you – the impressions they have when hearing or seeing your name. In the short period of time that I have worked with Mike, he recognizes the importance of having a consistent brand. The more consistent your messaging, the more consistent your branding — whether via words, design, offerings or perspective. He helps deliver that brand consistency into the company’s culture. He has the ability to bring together the right people and team to help consolidate and streamline the brand message and design so that everyone will walk the walk and talk the talk. He cuts through all the noise and helps brings a laser-like focus on what you should concentrate your business on. It was a great learning experience to have worked with Mike. As a consultant, his passion to understand your business will help deliver the results that you need to take the business to the next level.

If you need the inside scoop on the jan/san sector, call Mike Sawchuk. He is one of the industry's leading experts in sales, marketing, and greening. I first met Mike a decade ago when he was a customer of EcoLogo, an environmental certification mark that includes standards for cleaning products. Mike was one of my favorite customers because he was brutally honest about his products, the environmental standards, and the broader industry. We later got to know each other when we worked together for a larger environmental and safety certification organization. I watched as he applied his insider industry knowledge to improve the way environmental standards were developed, audit standards were improved, and "greening" was marketed and sold. If you need help selling products or understanding any aspect of the jan/san world, give Mike a call.

Mike Watt

I have had the pleasure and benefit to work both with and for Mike for over 20 years now. Mike is a consummate professional. Passion and drive for results are perhaps two of the best words to describe Mike. I have found Mike to be an excellent executor of plans, highly visionary and uniquely relevant for our industry, skill sets not generally seen in others as we compare him to others. Perhaps one of Mike's key strengths is to recognize and seek out talent and organize in a manner to arrange people into the right seats on the bus, thus organizing to focus on strengths and make weaknesses irrelevant through a complementary team where someone's strength is the compensatory weakness to someone's weakness. As a consultant, Mike is uniquely qualified to assist you with your business in a myriad of different ways, from Sales to Operations effectiveness, Mike has a keen ability to sort through reams of data and realities and come up with a clear and concise prescription for success. I have been in some of the best business meetings in my life with Mike and consider him to be not only a colleague but a true friend. I encourage you to make your mind up to engage with Mike on your business needs. The investment you make upfront will pay you large dividends downstream.
