Joining the Team

Several years ago I found myself searching the greater Savannah area for a reliable project floor work company to handle a high volume, scheduling challenged project requiring a high quality of work. I met with several different companies and decided to split the project between two that I thought could deliver what was needed. As the project progressed, one company separated itself from the other with strong communication, proper staffing, and most importantly, delivering what they had promised before the project started. That company was Facilicare Southeast.

Fast forward approximately three years and I am now working as a part of the Facilicare Southeast team. I recently decided to make the transition from the corporation I had worked at for 14 years within their industry leading Facility Services division, and utilize the management and technical skills I learned there into a more localized setting. With the freedom that comes along with an established local company, it is my mission to refocus on the client relationship, the work in the field, and ultimately the growth of the janitorial division of Facilicare Southeast.

Over the past fourteen years I gained experience across the facility management field working in the higher education sector. I was lucky to learn from and be a part of some great facility services teams at some highly regarded institutions such as ,Princeton University, George Washington University, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Rosemont College. Along the way I managed teams from 25 to over 225 members, across segments of the facilities management areas including custodial, maintenance, grounds, and energy management.

Coming from a large scale company I have learned how important it is to implement a repeatable model while tailoring key aspects of the operation to meet the diverse needs of each different client, department, office suite, or even cubicle. Whether the needs were scheduling, specific cleaning chemicals to use or not use, or even occupant allergies, we were able to find a way to make it work. With a little bit more liberty to explore different processes and cleaning chemicals I look forward to work with the staff here to provide the best results for our existing clients as well as our new ones.

With the current team in place here at Facilicare I am already seeing an impressive focus on customer service and dedication to ensuring a quality product and service are being provided. I see a great opportunity for them and myself to continue to develop each other through the exchange of knowledge and experience from the sum of our backgrounds.

As I become familiarized with Facilicare’s impressive client list and spaces we are responsible for maintaining, along with our current staff I am finding we are in a great position to quickly make a significantly larger impact in the greater Savannah janitorial services market. If you are interested in working with Facilicare and myself, and wish to explore what we might be able to offer you, I invite you to reach out to me or another associate in the company to setup a meeting.
