Populist Cleaning Co Employee Newsletter – June 2021

It’s an exciting time for Populist Cleaning Co. As we continue to grow, we’ll work hard to remain as responsive to our employees as we are to our customers. We couldn’t accomplish what we do every day in the world of commercial cleaning and janitorial services without you, our hardworking staff.

It’s our pleasure to present our monthly employee newsletter online! Bringing timely and useful information is still our goal. We’ll have articles and information relevant to cleaning, important announcements, employee celebrations, special recognitions, professional development, and even some fun stuff along the way.

As always, we welcome your feedback! Let us know what we’re doing right and where we need improvement. We’re in this together!

Richard arrived at Populist with 22+ years experience in the manufacturing and healthcare industries. He’s held various leadership and management positions throughout his career. Richard is a dedicated team-first type personality. He recently shared, “I am very excited for my new journey as Area Manager of Populist East. I look forward to meeting and working with everyone. Thanks for welcoming me aboard.”


Jesse is a resident of Ypsilanti and has been since 2010. He was recently the General Manager of Beezy’s Cafe and has been managing teams since 2008. Jesse is a deep lover of people and has an unhealthy obsession with Notre Dame Football. He lives with Tom Cruise – the coolest house cat in the world!
