On behalf of the ALS Association, Greater Los Angeles chapter, our board and staff, and the 481 families touched by ALS that we serve, thank you so much for being a part of the Los Angeles Country Walk to D'Feet ALS.
I would like to express the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach's, it's parent company Dover Motorsports, and my own sincere THANKS to you and your organization for your hard work, loyalty, support, and dedication in making this year's event such a great success.
The core production team of Coachella Music & Arts Festival 2005 greatly appreciates all the hard work that you put into this year's event. Amazing initiative was taken by you to go above and beyond what we initially contracted you to do. You've certainly treated us as more than just a customer and continually provide us with absolutely outstanding service.
I have been in the event production business for over thirty years. During that time I have used several different portable toilet companies. They provided portable restrooms but that's about it. If something came up during an event, I was always hard pressed to try and get someone out to fix the problem. That can't happen if you want to keep your visitors happy. Since I began working with Kevin Schneider over ten years ago, I have never had a problem that he couldn't fix. He has always been there when we needed him. When you find someone that is that dedicated to the welfare of his customers you don't let him go. Now Kevin has his own company and I couldn't be happier. I know he will instill in all of his employees that same sense of urgency when it comes to customer service.
For the past 15 years Kevin Schneider has provided all my events with portable restrooms, storage containers, hand wash sinks, fencing and so much more. By that I mean, excellent customer and client services 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. In the special event business, this kind of attention to detail is the difference between getting the job done, and performing with excellence for our clients and customers. If you're like me, no detail is too small, and every aspect of our event is integral to our success.
It gives me great pleasure to be given the opportunity to tell you about Mr. Kevin Schneider of 1st Jon. I am taking a wild guess that I have known Kevin for over 15 years when it comes to the world of PortoJons. I am in the event business and, as we all know, Kevin's services are, indeed, required for any large or small event. My primary affiliation with him is with the City of Los Angeles Marathon, where he has provided units for over 20,000 runners at the start line, services at the finish line and along the 26.2 mile course. He has also provided fencing for this event. Secondly, is with the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA which attracts 60,000 people. At this venue, he has provided us with miles of chain link fencing. In all my encounters with Kevin, I have found him to be prompt for any meeting that comes up, well informed about the needs of the client, someone who actually looks at and critiques a venue map, and above all, one of the most pleasant people I know. His family is also dedicated to his efforts and are usually there for him when needed. He has always gone above and beyond expectations - at least in My book! His staff is as conscientious as he, so when I learn that Kevin has been contracted for a job, I have no doubts in my mind that it will be done expeditiously, and a price that is satisfactory to everyone. My blessings are 100% on Kevin and 1st Jon.
