Please accept this letter as my personal recommendation for Brian Mapes. It has been my pleasure to work with Brian as a pest control technician for the Food Bank of the Rockies Nome Street facility since October 2013. During this time, Brian has been exceptionally helpful and dedicated to keeping our products safe and educating the food back staff.
By providing technical expertise and preventative solutions, Brian has been a key contributor to significant improvements made at the facility. For example, Brian recommended a bug light for the west wall next to the agency loading dock, which was later also recommended by the AIB Food Safety Professional during an unscored audit in November 2014. It was helpful and encouraging to be able to tell AIB auditor that we had already ordered the unit and were planning to install it right where he advised, per Brian’s recommendation.
Brian is always willing to educate myself and y staff, and answer any questions we have regarding food safety and pest control. He makes sure I fully understand any corrective actions needed and the reasoning behind them. It is also worth noting the Brian has developed a comfortable working relationship and excellent rapport with all staff at the Nome Street facility. We all genuinely enjoy working with him and would not hesitate to do so again.
