Superior Quality and Service is Not Only Our Commitment, It's Our Company Culture
We understand that cultivating a successful long-term relationship with our clients requires a knowledgeable, professional and experienced team that consistently meets and exceeds your expectations.
At Priority Building Services (PBS) there are no cleaning device gimmicks that put forward ridiculous un-substantiated claims of higher levels of cleaning or supervisory staff with little or no experience in the commercial cleaning industry.
In fact, at PBS, the average experience of our in-house staff exceeds 15 years and our commercial cleaning techniques and devices are backed by hundreds of thousands of hours of practical application. In addition, our in-house Management + Operation Team, in conjunction with our associates, communicate directly with our clients to ensure our services are consistently of high quality and to our clients’ standards.
With many years of marketing in my background, I had the opportunity to purchase this growing company in 2011. While it had been in successful operation for over 25 years, taking on this new venture was a challenge for me as I had not previously been involved in operating a commercial cleaning company. Although the company was very successful, I saw room for growth, an opportunity to put my own stamp into an existing business.
The management team, already in place, proved to be a tremendous asset. Their knowledge and commitment to the growth of the organization is evidenced everywhere. Their diverse backgrounds and unquestionable experience is essential to meeting the needs of existing and future clientele.
The competency of my operations and management team has allowed me to travel a little with my wife Lauren when we get some time off.
Bruce MacLeanGeneral Manager – Sales
Those who know me well would describe me as having an insatiable passion for teamwork, community building and everything sports.
I thrive on being part of a high-functioning team and I know what drives getting results. Whether it’s collaborating with colleagues and clients or strategizing with team mates on the next big play, I know, from more than 25 years of sales and management experience, that success comes from the contributions of many.
Playing my part to build healthy communities has been something I’ve made my life’s mission. If I’m not connecting with a client, in a boardroom, at the rink, or on the 18th Fairway, I’m likely out “in community” donating my time bringing a sense of belonging to those who need it most.

Noel FloresFinance I Office Manager
Originally from the Philippines, I have completed both Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and Certified General Accountant (CGA) certifications in British Columbia and have worked in Accounting / Finance positions of all forms for over 20 years. I was first introduced to Priority Building Services (PBS) as a customer at Pacific Bindery Services and was particularly impressed with the quality of service PBS provided. Previous to PBS entering into the picture, we had gone through a great deal of janitorial / building maintenance organizations . That all changed with PBS and when I found out that their was an open position at PBS, I frankly jumped at the opportunity.
Herber GuardadoDay QCM
After studying as an electrician in ElSalvador, I moved to Quebec in 1989. This move was very good for me as I was able to work in construction for almost five years. But in 1994, I and my new wife moved to Vancouver where I worked for Air Canada until I was laid off in 2000.
After this, I wanted to be in control of my life, to be self employed and I had the opportunity to purchase a franchise with Priority Building Services. Within one year, I had purchased two more franchises and then another two shortly thereafter. My hardwork paid off and was recognized by senior management who offered me a position on the management team as a Quality Control Manager.
My present and future is with Priority. Here I am always happy and I get respect for the work that I do. When I am not spending time working as a manager, I take pleasure in managing my properties. If there is any time left, I end up heading to the gym for relaxation.
Sukhi DhamiNight QCM
In 1994, I came here from Indonesia with my family. Within one year I had bought my first franchise from Priority. It was a risk, but I was trained by PBS in not only how to clean but how to grow a business. This gave me confidence to expand my business.
In 2002, I was given the opportunity to add to my income by becoming part of the management team. The training I received I am now able to pass on to others who are trying to grow their business with this company. It is a great experience that has allowed me to raise my family well and see one of my kids, so far, go into university.
I have always been treated fairly and with respect. When I am not spending time with my family, I like to keep fit through more formal exercise.
