4 CUSTOMER PERSPECTIVERobert M. Fitzgerald, Managing Member of both companies is experienced in supervisory and management positions in and out of the service contracting industry since This has enabled him to view the company’s service operations from a customer point of view. Bob Directs the day to day customer service, sales and operations, nightly Janitorial, daily window cleaning, sales, service requests, handyman service and pressure washing for both General Maintenance and HiRise Service through his two key Directors of Operations and night managers. Bob understands Customer Relationships, Customer Satisfaction, Customer Follow up and the unclutter layers of management directed at the customer and back at the vendor. Janitorial and maintenance related tasks should be understandable and uncomplicated. The job simply needs to get done when promised and completed to customers satisfaction for a fair price. Janitorial needs to be performed consistently and service requests or complaints taken care of the same day or night and communication loop closed with the original contact. Bob’s very successful past experience in the contract janitorial / window cleaning field in Indianapolis, several cities throughout Indiana, Cincinnati and Phoenix areas dictates his recommendations and behavior in Phoenix with General Maintenance and HiRise Service. Bob also worked for State of Indiana auditing the Clerk Treasuries on most of the Cities and towns.

6 Distinguished by Its Commitment To… Building customer relationships that last… Given the cost of acquiring new business, this is simply good economics –we understand that our role is to contribute to the success of our customers by becoming a valued team member – this means consistent and continuous servicing of the needs of the building occupants without the daily intervention of our customer. Taking the time to communicate with building occupants… The existence of specifications is necessary but hardly sufficient – building occupant satisfaction depends as much on the perception of cleanliness as on its absolute level – and the perception is based on responsiveness to a variety of factors that cannot be incorporated into the cleaning specification – we accomplish this through an on going program of occupant surveys. Providing its customers with a single source solution… To their cleaning and routine maintenance and supply requirements – achieving this through responsible employees, and supervision and management that anticipate the needs of a facilities occupants – maintaining a constant focus on our customers’ objectives for property appearance, occupant satisfaction, and asset preservation. Expecting – and getting – a high level of performance… From its employees – we have found this is a two way street – by committing ourselves to our employees’ success and well – being – by taking the time to be on the job with them, coaching, directing and monitoring – we are able to achieve levels of performance well above industry norms. Investing in quality supervision and management… The investment required is not just financial – and quality supervision is not a random event – our industry is not noted for effective supervision – the typical industry trained individual is burdened with negative and defeatist attitudes – and to introduce talented people from outside the industry to our business. Maintaining operating intensity over time… Not just during the first 60 to 90 days – this requires uncompromising discipline on the part of management – to continue to work at developing a quality crew in the face of substandard performance and turnover – and to maintain consistent communication with building occupants and customer representatives.
