"How did it change my day-to-day operation? Everything I do now, I always look beyond the front page to see what type of product that is. How is that going to impact my operation? How is it going to benefit in my process of keeping the certification and going through the process again in three years from now? That's how it changed. Everything that we do now has to be great." - Mario Izaguirre, ABM, Parking Manager for Brookfield Bank of America Plaza, Los Angeles
