Franchisee Spotlight: Jim Campbell of The Cleaning Authority

A seasoned business professional with over 30 years of experience working with Fortune 500 companies, Jim Campbell is prepared to branch off and create something on his own with The Cleaning Authority.

Jim Campbell is an executive with a background in management, sales, operations, and customer relations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. He has built out several staffs throughout his career and is experienced in hiring and growing a team around him. With a history of several leadership-level positions as a member of Fortune 500 companies over the years, Campbell asked himself: "Why go to work for someone else again if I can find a business that works for myself?" 

He was attracted to the idea of starting and building a successful business of his own, the scalability of The Cleaning Authority model, and the eventual opportunity of semi-absentee or absentee ownership.

What were you doing before partnering with The Cleaning Authority?

I am a Midwest native from Ohio and moved to San Antonio after college to pursue a job, which led to a promotion and a move to the Dallas Fort-Worth area. I have lived in the Dallas area for 30 years, working for Fortune 500 companies. I have had roles as a manager of various types of sales and marketing teams. In the past, I have traveled heavily for work and look forward to owning my own business locally that will allow me to spend more time at home.

How did you learn about The Cleaning Authority, and what made you ultimately decide to commit?

After developing a career in the corporate world for 30 years, I have built a skill set that will fit well with the franchise model. I worked with a franchise consultant to identify brands that would fit my strengths and The Cleaning Authority was a good fit for me.

If you were to speak with someone who’s considering signing on with The Cleaning Authority, what advice would you give them?

One of the major reasons that I chose to pursue business ownership with The Cleaning Authority was the professionalism within the organization. I was presented with many options and as I vetted out various brands, I found that The Cleaning Authority was professional and organized and best suited me.

Why is the Dallas-Fort Worth area the perfect market for The Cleaning Authority business?

Growth in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is extremely hot for new corporations coming in, especially from the California area. Texas is a hotbed for corporations and I have found that as companies and large corporations come in, the housing boom is continuing and growth is expected to exceed national average. That is great for us as a company that services peoples’ homes.
