–Multi-Million Dollar Project Will Expand Capacity to Accommodate 750 Employees–
SAINT JOHN, NB–Commercial Properties, the New Brunswick-headquartered property developer and manager, today announced it is beginning a multi-million-dollar expansion to Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ Saint John Centre. Adding nearly 16,000 square feet of office space, the enlarged location on Crown Street will accommodate 750 employees.
Open and operating for more than 20 years, Wyndham’s Saint John associates are key liaisons between hotels and guests. Once completed, the expanded centre will house core teams across reservations, member services, customer care, group sales, account solutions and property support functions. Wyndham will also be adding 100 new positions to its Saint John location.
“Our teams manage nearly five million customer interactions a year, so it’s incredibly important our facilities comfortably-fit and encourage the very best customer service out of our associates as they continue winning the trust and loyalty of our guests,” said Kevin Dunne, vice president, Global Contact Centers for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Commercial Properties is an excellent landlord, and we look forward to continuing our partnership as they lead this exciting expansion effort.”
Planning is well underway with work to begin on site this summer, according to Paul Moore, General Manager of Commercial Properties. “Wyndham has been an important contributor to the Saint John economy for over two decades. This expansion is a reflection of the quality of its operation and its commitment to our community. I want to thank and congratulate Wyndham for its investment in Saint John,” said Moore.
