When Mike Christensen, Facilities Engineering Manager at the Addison School District in suburban Chicago, reached out to GSF ILLINOIS in late 2014, he was in need of replacing the District’s janitorial services company provider during a one-week period over the year-end school holidays. The GSF ILLINOIS team put a transition plan in place and by the time the students returned in early 2015, our new staff was up and running.

Stretching 500,000 square feet over nine K-8 schools, the Addison School District serves 4,300 students. Since the schools are multi-use buildings — including classrooms, cafeterias, nurses’ offices, gymnasiums and computer labs — we leverage our breadth of experience in cleaning in a variety of facilities including restaurants, medical centers, arenas and data centers.



Barbara Majka, GSF ILLINOIS Area Manager, oversees all operations for the Addison School District account. As a result of her hands-on approach and commitment to the client, she has built the 30-person crew, groomed staff to take on supervisory and management roles, and established new standards of excellence.
