City Wide Opens First Canada Location in Southwestern Ontario
City Wide, the nation’s largest management company in the building maintenance industry, announced the opening of its first Canada-based office. With the expansion, the brand now serves commercial properties throughout Southwestern Ontario, in addition to across the United States.
Local building owners and property management companies throughout Southwestern Ontario now have access to a single-source solution for all of their building maintenance needs. Waterloo Region resident and serial entrepreneur Mark MacGregor owns and operates the new office. City Wide of Southwestern Ontario is open for business at 4-180 Shearson Crescent in Cambridge, Ontario.
“Relationships are at the core of City Wide’s business philosophy,” said MacGregor. “My entire career has been built on the relationships I have developed, and I now have the chance to make more of these important connections. I’m honored to open the first Canadian City Wide office dedicated to providing facility managers the best value for the services they need to keep their businesses running well.”
MacGregor joins City Wide with a diverse professional background. Most recently, he was a caseworker for four years at Ontario Works, a provincially funded income and employment support program. Outside of his day job, he designed, manufactured and branded Brock Brush Company, a wet-shaving brush for people with sensitive skin. He has spent much of his time volunteering in his community, most notably as a mediator with Community Justice Initiatives. With his extensive ties to the community, Mark is positioned to build lasting relationships that will help grow the Southwestern Ontario office and provide exceptional client services.
“For the past few years now, I have had a growing interest in owning my own business – which is part of what led me to start Brock Brush Company back in 2013,” added MacGregor. “Leaving a lasting impact on my community has consistently motivated me throughout my career. Speaking with friends who own their own businesses, it has become apparent there is a great opportunity to provide building maintenance services in Southwestern Ontario. City Wide and the contractors we partner with will work hard to meet client expectations. I’m excited to hit the ground running while also finding ways City Wide can give resources back to our community.
Playing an instrumental role in boosting local economies, City Wide puts business back into the community by partnering with smaller, independent, and locally owned maintenance companies to execute services. Aligning with independent companies ensures clients have access to more specialized services, while providing an opportunity for small businesses to develop alongside a reputable national company.Back
