Local building owners and property management companies throughout The Midlands, including Columbia, Lexington, Newberry, Sumter, Aiken and Camden, now have access to a single-source solution for all of their building maintenance needs. Camden resident and former vice president of a multinational manufacturer of industrial machinery, Ben Mackey, opened the doors of City Wide of Columbia today at 1401 St. Andrews Road, Suite 140.

“City Wide’s business model is built to represent our clients. People are people regardless of industry, and the best way to exceed client expectations and deliver superior value is by building relationships,” said Mackey. “Client trust is earned every day and I am excited to begin putting all of these values into practice.”

With a background in sales and customer service for the textile, carpet and automotive industries, Mackey brings to City Wide a wealth of experience in developing relationships with various individuals. His most recent position as vice president helped him understand the various nuances that come with supporting and communicating with clients and employees. The expertise Mackey has in providing executive leadership and creating a sustainable business plan ensures he will deliver exceptional services to his clients.

“When I started thinking about the next steps in my career, I knew I wanted the opportunity to be my own boss,” added Mackey. “What attracted me to City Wide is its customer-centric focus. Our goal is to make the lives of our clients easier by providing them with access to the leading local building maintenance services such as janitorial cleaning, window washing and landscaping. My team and I are eager to begin creating our mark on the local Columbia business 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.
