Week in Review: March 26th - 30th

Greg Mansfield - President:
Another week down for the City Wide team. It has been a busy one! I also cannot believe that April is just days away-- what a quick March we've had!

We've been busy with focusing on Spring Cleaning for our current clients and prospective customers. We've been bidding a lot of parking lot maintenance proposals as well as scheduling floor care and window washing for established clients. It sure is nice to see our clients' facilities get all cleaned up in time for spring!

I've also been busy with gearing up an RFP process for a large clinic group. We're excited to be a part of the candidates and to show the company what City Wide can do for them!

Additionally, sales have been going well. We have partnered up with our colleagues in Boston as a way to mentor each other in sales. We are excited to see how we can help improve revenue each month in the form of encouragement and brainstorming.

I've been excited all week long about getting my boat out on the water for the first time this Saturday. It will be so nice to do some fishing on the boat after it being stored up all winter long-- wish me luck! :-)

Tyler DuBord - Facility Service Manager:
It’s been a pretty busy week up in the north. It began with the training of several crew members for a large customer in the northwest metro. It went pretty smoothly and everyone is set up ready to work! We are also officially ready to begin cleaning another location for this customer near their main facility. Though the scope of work is similar, the need for manpower is much smaller than the main site. I am sure this account will pose some challenges but we’re always ready to go up in the north with anything that comes our way.

This week marked a significant milestone for my night manager Steve. Steve has been with City Wide now for 1 year and has done a fantastic job. He excels in establishing excellent relationships with our service providers and setting them on the right path for success. Steve is 100% dedicated to following all City Wide policies and procedures and is willing to put in the time and effort to make sure every night in the north metro goes smoothly. Thanks Steve for an excellent 1st year, keep up the great work!

I’m gearing up for Cozumel here in a couple weeks. I thought there would be no reason to leave with the excellent weather we’ve had here in Minnesota the past few weeks although this past week the temps have dipped down a bit. I’ve come to realize there is nothing that could ever change my mind about leaving for sunny Mexico. I’m ready for some scuba diving, fishing and just laying out in the sun!
