Chautauqua Mall – Northeast Division 993
Donald worked by himself the night of a severe storm, and there were numerous roof leaks. Donald was like a fireman running around and helping stores with their leaks. Donald is extremely smart! He worked for SMS as a senior at Jamestown High School, and graduated as Class President. He is currently taking college courses, but continues to do an excellent job here at Chautauqua Mall.

Broadway Plaza – West Division 996
Maria has been the most reliable employee at Broadway Plaza, since the day she started here. Maria has never said “no” when asked to perform a task, help a coworker, and especially work overtime. Maria has always accepted extra hours/days when asked. When we started a day porter program for the new Industrious co working tenant here at Broadway Plaza, Maria was the first employee we offered the assignment to. She has continued to excel and over deliver to our customer. Maria truly exemplifies the “Whatever it Takes” attitude on a daily basis.

Jwiane has been with SMS for two years, and upon our startup was a recent transfer to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport. Over the past five (5) months that Jwiane has been at this location, he has exceeded my and the airport administrations’ expectations as a leader. Every day, he has a willingness to go above and beyond and is always willing to do “Whatever it Takes” to make sure a task or project is completed.

He provides great training and mentoring to his employees, and instills great core values.

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.
