Whatever it Takes Employees of the Month
Anderson Raub II
Palmer Park Mall – Northeast Division 993
Anderson Raub is a very hard worker and also very loyal. He puts in a lot of effort and time into the tasks at hand, and does not take any shortcuts to get the job done. He has great customer service and the days that he is off, customers always tell me how hard of a worker he is. I’m grateful for having him on my team.

Broadway Square – West Division 996
Chris has been working at Broadway Plaza for just about one year now. In that time, I have had numerous store managers, contractors, and even guests come up to me to express how much they appreciate the hard work and dedication that Chris displays, while performing his duties on a daily basis. Chris takes pride in keeping Broadway Plaza looking ‘5 Stars.’ Chris finishes an assigned task and immediately radios in to the Supervisor/Manager for additional tasks. Chris takes his job very seriously and wants everybody to enjoy Broadway Plaza as much as he does.
Nominated by: Angela Waldrep, Facility Manager
The Avenue Murfreesboro – Midwest/Southeast Division 997
Mike has been a hard worker since he walked in the door. He always comes in early, asks what all needs to be done and takes initiative to do more than asked daily. He has volunteered for days to fill in when needed, and has a work ethic like none other. He is respectful and always gives 100% in everything he does. His dedication to the job and drive to do more than asked is unmatched in my book. When special events need attention and worked, he steps in. He is a key player in the success of this property and is a valued team member by all of his peers.
Nominated by: Caleb Midgett, Facility Manager

2018 Service Management Systems Winner- Greg Mayo
Greg Mayo has been part of the Service Management Systems family since 2006. In September 2018, Hurricane Florence travelled up the east coast, hitting Jacksonville Mall with a lot of wind and rain. Greg and his team reported to work immediately following the storm to begin the clean-up process. Unable to assess the damage, the Mall’s General Manager relied on Greg to be her eyes and ears until she could return. In an email to the SMS Executive team, the GM stated that Greg “is a dedicated and loyal employee, and I am thankful to have him on our team.” A Marine Veteran, Greg has worked with the North Carolina Career Center to help find other veterans work at SMS. In recognition, Greg accepted an award from the state of North Carolina on behalf of SMS for “Employer of the Year” for hiring and employing a high percentage of veterans. His team will tell you, Greg exemplifies how one person can make a positive impact and affect change for the betterment of those around him.
