SMG Turns 40

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, PA (CelebrityAccess) — Facilities management company SMG marks a significant milestone this year as they celebrate their 40th anniversary.

The company, which began in 1997 with a management deal for The Mercedes-Benz Superdome, now oversees 230 facilities in 5 countries, including NRG Astrodome in Houston; the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona; and the BOK Center in Tulsa.

The company also still handles the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Kyle France, Chairman of the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District, SMG’s longest standing client had this to say about SMG, “SMG has been an outstanding partner to the LSED since the inception of our relationship. SMG has delivered on its value promise to the State of Louisiana and is a big reason the Mercedes-Benz Superdome has been so successful in generating such an impact for New Orleans and the surrounding region. On behalf of the LSED, we congratulate SMG on 40 great years of service and this significant point in its history.”

“Long-standing partnerships such as the one SMG enjoys with the Mercedes-Benz Superdome are the result of the dedicated work and stewardship provided by our employees to our clients. Throughout this year SMG will be marking this milestone. SMG has enjoyed a remarkable client retention rate of 93% by focusing our passion and energy into getting the best results for our clients. We’re extraordinarily proud of the company’s growth and success and look forward to an exciting future,” said SMG President and CEO, Wes Westley. – Staff Writers
