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.

The Horizons Award

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.
