Waiting in line at the DMV or waiting in line at Disneyworld® ?

Waiting  is inevitable in each scenario, but one has made an experience out of it and the other is no different than the local deli or airport security. Unfortunately most NYC buildings and offices offer the same visitor experience. Treated like a number, not a valued guest.

The first impression sets the tone which translates into the impression of the company

Margot Strunin, Managing Director, Gainor First Impressions

Who wants to be treated like cattle and greeted by a disengaged receptionist? As Gainor President, Norma Menkin has seen firsthand, it’s about making an effort and a distinction between security and hospitality. Yes, a security guard can stand at a desk, granting or denying access in a purely transactional fashion. When seen through the lens of hospitality, reception becomes a service  providing an individualized experience to each guest.

Areas of opportunity:

  • Luxury multi-tenant buildings
  • World Headquarters
  • Executive Reception & Conference Center Management

Marketing and advertising are great but a quality lobby staff is a luxury that will attract quality tenants. Global visitors to your headquarters and conference centers will be put at ease by a professional welcome and first class treatment.
