Francisco Rojas, Director of Operations and Owner, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the fields of engineering and construction.

Attributing his success to his dedication, strong work ethic, and love for education, Mr. Rojas has held full-time jobs since he was 15 years old and has been on his own since he was 17. While serving as a border patrol agent for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security between 2010 and 2012, he pursued his college education—earning a bachelor’s degree in architecture and a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of California, Davis in the same year and then completing coursework in law enforcement and immigration law from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. Equipped with his degrees, he became active as an architectural retail designer for Apple from 2012 to 2013 before advancing to the role of project manager at Bess Testlab Inc. from 2013 to 2019. In the midst of working in these positions, he attained a master’s degree in architecture from the Academy of Art University and later a master of Engineering in construction engineering management from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Since 2019, Mr. Rojas has excelled as the director of operations at CalBurton, Inc.—an organization that ensures underground safety throughout California—and since 2022 has served as the owner and president of PuroClean of Fresno—a water, fire, mold, biohazard, mitigation, and reconstruction company. Focusing on CalBurton in the mornings and PuroClean in the evenings, he predominantly ensures that jobs are going well and prioritizes the safety and well-being of his employees, to whom he attributes much of his success. He considers it his responsibility to keep the businesses growing and making money in order to benefit his employees and their families so they can prosper.  He actively pays his employees above average because he believes they’re his greatest asset, and they love working for him.

An expert in his field, Mr. Rojas has published articles within his industry and holds memberships with the Associated General Contractors of America and the Project Management Institute. Looking toward the future, he strives to develop his company further and would like to establish several others—in fact, he wants to decrease his workload at CalBurton and PuroClean and take on a more managerial role. Believing that education is essential, he’s currently pursuing an Executive MBA in business, management, marketing, and related support services at California State University, Fresno.

Since 2007, Mr. Rojas has been married to his best friend from high school and college classmate, Amahayha. When he isn’t running his companies or studying, he likes to work out at the gym, drive off-road vehicles, go camping, drive corvettes, and spend time with his family—including his two children.
