A Letter From Gary Gill, President and CEO of the MacKenzie Companies

During this evolving journey with respect to the Coronavirus, all of us at The MacKenzie Companies are first and foremost concerned about the health and well-being of our employees, clients, families, friends and community members.

Despite the uncertainty of these times, we want to assure you of our commitment and capability in the continuity of providing exceptional services. In this regard, fortunately we were well prepared to execute virtually all of our services in a remote working mode. Our substantial investment in our IT platform has positioned us to make the required pivots of these most recent days.

While we have some essential employees present at our offices, the very vast majority are able to execute their work remotely which results in effective social distancing. An example of our ability to productively proceed is tomorrow, normally 20 of us would gather in-house for our monthly four-hour meeting and instead we will all be working from remote locations using laptops and Zoom video conferencing. This serves to keep our business operating as usual, while respecting the importance of social distancing during this extremely unique time.

As most of you know, The MacKenzie Companies are a compilation of numerous divisions, most notably brokerage, property management, construction, capital, and data analytics (Datastory). In normal times these divisions have unique operating characteristics, and this holds true in these not so normal times.

While each of our divisions were equally prepared for this moment from an IT standpoint, there will be other aspects that might apply to one or more divisions, but not necessarily to all. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns pertaining to a specific division, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the division leaders below.

On behalf of our exceptional 225 employees, we thank you for our relationship and, as always, will do whatever it takes to perform at a superior level on your behalf. Stay safe and healthy.
