Our Management Team
Owner, Zelko Francic, brings a world of experience — literally — to his core commitment to customer care. His career took him to various countries with diverse cultures and various ways of doing business. He learned quickly that success depended on his ability to listen to his customers, try to put himself in their shoes and deliver on their expectations rather than trying to sell them something they didn’t want or need.
In launching SmartClean®, Francic knew that commercial property owners and managers often face challenges ensuring that buildings are properly cleaned and maintained by reliable professionals. He understood that a building’s cleanliness directly reflects on their company’s image and their tenants’ satisfaction.
Today, SmartClean® delivers on its promise of exemplary customer care because Zelko Francic works hard to instill his same beliefs and values in his staff – a commitment to asking the right questions, listening carefully, communicating openly and honestly, and providing services that meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
Sasha Francic is President of SmartClean®, the second-generation leader of the family business started in 2007. Prior to being named president, Sasha was Vice President of Operations. Before working at SmartClean®, he was an educator in Taiwan where he oversaw the Fine Arts Department at Ivy Collegiate Academy. Sasha holds a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Health from Iowa State University. With his diverse background and international experience, he is keen on forming lasting relationships with customers and ensuring SmartClean® is held to the highest standards.
