CleanMark, a North American facility services company is pleased to announce the continued, substantial growth of its new and existing US operation following wins in Wisconsin – a new territory – as well as a major multi-state, multi-year agreement that has further bolstered its existing US footprint.
The expansion continues CleanMark’s long-term US strategy of emulating its Canadian coast to coast coverage realized via organic growth. The recent wins adding over 9.5 million square feet of space under management to CleanMark’s existing portfolio in Florida, Virginia, New York, Alabama and Minnesota, as well as providing a healthy initial presence in Wisconsin.
The wins further strengthen CleanMark’s position as a leading exponent of retail and grocery retail space management.
“The fact that we are able to strengthen our foothold in existing US territories while expanding into a new state is a testament to the long-term, mutually beneficial relationships we are developing across our North American client base,” says John Vavitsas, CleanMark’s Founder and CEO. “It is extremely gratifying that clients have the confidence to entrust us with an ever-growing proportion of their sites and points to the strength of our offer, consistency of approach and our advanced and automated operating service model.”
As part of the expansion, CleanMark will be promoting two key team members who have been instrumental in implementing, maintaining and actively building the CleanMark presence in their respective territories. CleanMark is pleased to announce that John Schadt has been promoted to Regional Director, overseeing Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, Michigan, Wisconsin and New York. In addition, Andrew Paquin has been promoted to Area Manager, responsible for operations in Wisconsin, Michigan and New York. Finally, Damaris Dougan, Area Supervisor, is now supervising all day to day operations in the DC, Maryland and Virginia area.
Through their hard work, dedication and determination, Schadt, Paquin, and Dougan have played a significant part in the positive US impact CleanMark is realizing. While bringing their extensive industry experience to bear, they have also enjoyed unparalleled support from members of CleanMark’s management team, many of whom travelled to territories to lend their expertise first hand.
“Implementing a new operation comes with a myriad of challenges, from staffing and building new client relationships, to instilling an effective infrastructure,” explains Schadt. “Having members of the CleanMark management team actively offering their invaluable insight and rolling up their sleeves to pitch in is a testament to the outstanding corporate culture housed within our organization.”
