Tyler DuBord - Facility Service Manager:
It was a great 2011 for myself in the north metro. I’ve took on several new customers throughout the year and they’ve been very pleased with our responsiveness and dedication to providing excellent service. I’ve had a fun time establishing great relationships with these customers as well. Thanks to those folks who put their trust in City Wide in 2011 and I look forward to continuing our relationship into 2012 and beyond!
Just this past December marked my 4th year with City Wide
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and New Year’s. I took
what seemed like a short vacation between the two holidays and took a trip to
Happy New Year to everyone out there and a prosperous 2012!!
Mitch Brunette - Facility Service Manager:
Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed some time away, and had a chance to get together with friends and family. I was fortunate enough to take the week off in-between Christmas and New Year with exception of Tuesday which I worked and what a great week to recharge. I had my brother-in-law and sister-in-law in town for the week which was a lot of fun hanging out and eating at some of our favorite places in town. I even had a chance to put my new ice auger to use and went out ice fishing one day!
Looking back on 2011 it was a fantastic year at City Wide-- we accomplished a lot, grew the business, helped our customers combine more services to us instead of multiple vendors, and set new goals for the upcoming year to continue our development as a group and as individuals! I look forward to learning more about the industry this year and getting better at bidding and being a part of more and new projects this year.
Most of December was spent playing catch-up from being gone during Thanksgiving, bidding projects, starting a few new accounts, and then preparing to be gone for vacation, so most of the month was a busy blur! I am happy to say that in the last 6 months or so that we as an operations group helped begin doing cold calls it finally paid off and we closed the first account from my cold calls! The account began this past Tuesday and it is off to a great start! I love doing my job as an operations manager and working with our service providers and clients. But it is fun to attempt a different avenue of work by getting in the front door of a new property and attempting to get someone excited enough to give you a chance to talk to them about how you can help their business. I look forward to taking the momentum from closing the first deal and carrying it into my upcoming calls for future success!
This week and next week I am closing out my built-in hard floor care project for a top scrub and wax for our group of dialysis clinics. I’m excited to finally get them all caught up from the quarter and looking great to help them get through winter. Fortunately, it has been a very mild winter and the floors haven't taken the beating they have in the past by this time of year!
Looking forward to finding some new projects to tackle this year and continue to execute well on the repeat work that we have built up over the last couple years. Good luck in 2012 everyone!
Jarrad Nickolite - Facility Service Manager:
Hello Everyone! Now that the holidays are over, its back to reality!
Things have been a bit crazy these last 2 months with new business starting, quarterly floor projects, buying our new house, and planning for the holidays. I am excited that City Wide finished the year busy and ending on a good note!
There are a lot of things that I’m looking forward to, for the coming year. I am looking forward to building an even better relationship with my current customers and am excited to see the amount of new business we are able to generate. I am also happy that Greg was able to bring in Brian and make him a part of the team! This is already a huge resource for the company and for us FSM’s. Thanks for the help Brian!
On a personal note, things have finally settled down on the home front with the new house. The late nights and long weekend hours are finally over until spring comes. Until then, I plan to spend a lot of time ice fishing and relaxing with my wife Lana.
I hope everyone had a great holiday and enjoyed the time with your families!
