President and Founder
Universal Cleaners Inc. was established in 2008 by founder and current President Tony Youssef. With a background in Business, Quality Assurance and Customer Service, Tony moved into the Janitorial service industry following the footsteps of his older sibling and role model Isaak Youssef. After visiting his sibling in Australia, Tony with the help of his sibling, developed a vision to provide un-matched cleaning and janitorial solutions to a broad Commercial and Industrial clientele. He began to build Universal Cleaners Inc with the closest people to his heart, his sister Rozalyn and best friend Pasquale. Surrounded with people who shared the same vision, Universal Cleaners Inc was launched in the new developing area of Binbrook, part of the Greater Hamilton region. Tony hired Dennis Gregorio as Vice President, after a strong friendship was built based on moral values which highlighted the importance of having happy employees, thus resulting in a happy clientele. Tony continues to oversee the company’s operation which now stretches across Southern Ontario and continues to provide un-matched janitorial cleaning services. A dedicated and active member in the community with a passion for animals, Tony launched the inaugural fundraiser event to benefit sheltered animals in 2015 and has annually continued to do so since.
Vice President of Operations
Dennis Gregorio joined Universal Cleaners Inc. in January 2016 as the Company’s Vice President of Operations. Dennis has been in the Janitorial Service Industry for the past 15 years and has been employed by some of Canada’s largest Janitorial Service Providers. During such time, Dennis managed various accounts across the province of Ontario and upwards of 150 employees directly reporting to him. Before venturing into the Janitorial Service Industry however, Dennis first excelled his Management and Customer service skills in Retail. This gave him a strong foundation of Employee Management, Customer Service and Sales. In 2015, Dennis met Tony and a friendship was born due to shared values and emphasis on work life balance and assuring that employees remain the core of any successful company. Dennis has since remained an integral part of Universal Cleaners Inc.’s success and continues to be the Company’s ambassador in assuring a safe, healthy and happy work environment for all UCI employees.
