Boris got his entrepreneurial start early in life, helping his parents stock and and run their fruit and vegetable stand in post-civil war Croatia. Being business owners more so out of necessity rather than desire, it was an experience that would afterwards instill a sense resourcefulness and perseverance.
When the consulting company he worked for wound down operations during the 2015/2016 Alberta recession, Boris decided it was a good time to jump back into the family business and see if he could help it navigate the uncertain economic landscape. After doubling revenue at his father’s driving school and setting up the processes needed to scale the business, he decided to target another industry for innovation – house cleaning. This led to the birth of WestMaids, a 7-figure modern house cleaning service known for leveraging tech to provide a smooth customer experience and consistent service quality.
Boris completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Science in 2012 (University of Calgary).
