ATLANTA APARTMENT ASSOCIATION: GOLD PATRON OF THE MONTH
n May 2015, PDQ Services celebrated our 20th
anniversary. This was an incredible milestone and
one that could not have been achieved without our
dedicated, long-term employees and valued clients.
Twenty years ago, my father took a chance with $1,000 and
an idea. He started a collection agency in a spare bedroom
of his house making phone calls for a former employer.
Through many creative endeavors and a few acquisitions,
he was able to build a successful company that I never
dreamed would emerge from the packet of information
I remember him showing me when I was 10 years old.
As many of you know, my father, Phil Bennett, passed
away three years ago after a valiant battle with cancer.
He is incredibly missed by all, but his legacy lives on.
Through an emphasis on tradition, PDQ Services has been
able to maintain our level of service and dedication that
was so important to my father. Dad valued people and
the relationships he cultivated with them whether they
were a friend, family member, employee or customer.
It took him a few years to reach a point where he could
hire employees. One of these employees is still with
us today, and a few of our longest employed are on our
eviction crew. He had a way of making everyone feel
important and needed as well as helping others however
possible. It is this emphasis on relationships and the
human spirit that has turned our employees into family.
Making relationships a priority has also translated into
business relationships with clients and colleagues.
PDQ has always been a family from the start and
while we have done the best we can to carry on this
sentiment, we have also made strides in improving other
areas. We have streamlined many of our communications
to our clients and their attorneys by making documents
and information more readily available. In doing
so, we have made our employees more accessible by
our clients for any assistance they may need.
In recent years, we started our Holiday Payback
contest where we donate funds toward the rent of three
deserving tenants nominated by our customers. We
run this contest from November to early December.
Nominations are distributed to all of our employees who
then vote on whom they believe is the most deserving. It's
always difficult deciding among the nominees. We enjoy
spreading this joy during the holiday season, and it is a
nice nod to Phil and his caring and giving spirit. *
