Time seems to evaporate this week as we get busier and busier! Month end and the first of the month always come with their extra paperwork, tasks, and follow-ups, but it is now behind us! I’m looking forward to a good February with new goals set to achieve and to hopefully gain some new business within this month.
Brian Mansfield – Business Operations Analyst:
Another hectic week is almost over. I feel like we say that a lot but it really seems to be true! The week started off with a visit from Stuart, our Regional Sales Manager for City Wide. We got to spend some quality time discussing our sales and marketing efforts here in the Twin Cities and how we can continue to get the word out about what sets City Wide apart from other commercial cleaning and building maintenance companies. The conversations were very productive and we’re excited to try some new ideas.
I also got to spend some time out at one of our accounts in the west metro with Jarrad, our FSM for that territory. Jarrad has been spending extra time working with the crew to really fine tune the process in that facility and I was excited to get to be an extra pair of hands to help him out. I’ve said before that I’m very impressed with the dedication and professionalism of our FSM’s and that fact continues to be reinforced when I see how hard they work to satisfy our clients.
Speaking of our talented FSM’s, congratulations to Mitch who won the nationwide City Wide FSM contest for 2011! This is the second time Mitch has won this award in the last three years. On top of that, Tyler, our FSM for the north metro, also finished in the top 5 in the contest. Congratulations to both of you and thanks for all of your hard work!
We’ve managed to work in some fun this week too which started Sunday evening at the Timberwolves/Lakers game with Greg, Stuart, Kelly, and myself. We came up a little short at the end but it was an exciting game and the first event I’ve ever been to at the Target Center.
Monday night a group of us from City Wide participated in a circuit training workout at Minnesota Top Team, a boxing and martial arts training facility in Eagan. It was the first time we tried anything like that and we had a blast! Thanks to Jennie, Jeremy and Alex for being so welcoming and providing us with an exciting and challenging workout!

We also were able to enjoy a Minnesota Wild hockey game with two of our clients as well.
Although the Wild did not pull out a win, we still had a great time. Kelly and our clients even had the chance to pose with Nordi, the Minnesota Wild's mascot ;-)
I'm headed back to Kansas City this afternoon after a productive visit to Minnesota. Looking forward to being back home and to watch the Super Bowl as well!
