Col Mike Bajema (ret). Mr. Bajema will assume his role as Chief Operating Officer of Corvus Holdings beginning in March. In his new role, Bajema will oversee Corvus' rapidly expanding business operations and franchise support systems while promoting company vision and culture.
"Corvus and its stakeholders will benefit from the valuable skill sets and abilities Mike will bring to the company," remarked Justin Douglas, CEO and Founder of Corvus Janitorial Systems. "From improving upon franchise training and support functions to streamlining existing system processes, Mike will without a doubt be an essential member of the team and we are thrilled to have him on board."
Born and raised in Seattle, Bajema humbly served in the U.S. Army for 21 years. While rising through the ranks, he served in postings around the world including Germany, Korea, and three deployments to Iraq.

One of Bajema's first initiatives as COO is to study every market Corvus operates in and capture the unique procedures each franchise owner has implemented to create a thriving business. This will aid him in creating a guidebook, compiled of efficient systems and processes, that will facilitate Franchisees learning from each other.
"We have a saying at Corvus that our WHY, or reason for existing, is to Make Lives Better…our franchisees and our consumers, and I'm thrilled to come on board and further promote that ethos," said Bajema.
