Humble, powerful leadership is unique in most business circles. Paul and Alice Gutierrez started Midwest Maintenance out of their family’s garage with those natural traits. Their success was not focused on numb transactions between client and vendor. It was their sincerity in doing business at a uniquely personal level that lead to Midwest Maintenance’s early growth.

Here is where we get to the good ol’ cliché of the apple not falling far from the tree. Jamie Gutierrez (aka the apple), daughter of Paul & Alice (collectively known as the tree), reflected the same traits as her parents. Literally being brought up in the company, Jamie focuses the business on people and keeps the “family” in the family business. Combined with her innate business savvy and extraordinary vision, Jamie has grown the business exponentially during her leadership and has drawn in a team to transform the lives of those we connect with each and every day.
