Magnum York is excited to welcome Holly Yuzwa as our Business Relationship Manager to lead our MYVendor Preferred Vendor & Trades Program.

Holding a CCHP designation (Canadian Certified “Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point”), Holly joins the team with 11 years of property management experience managing corporate housing, executive, and extended-stay suites. Holly oversaw a portfolio of 800 fully furnished suites, where she increased the market share to over 30% for the Alberta region.

Holly also has extensive experience in the hospitality industry, including helping with the opening of the new Marriot at the Calgary Airport amongst other successes.

What is the MYVendor Program?

We believe that clients, vendors, and Magnum York are equal partners in ensuring responsible property maintenance.

Magnum York is responsible for $25M marketplace of annual maintenance costs and capital projects, which is why we’ve created the MYVendor program.

The Magnum York MYVendor Preferred Vendor Program is an exclusive collection of our most trusted partners, trades, and vendors.

Prior to the MYVendor program, trade management across Magnum York could be inconsistent, difficult to administer, unorganized, a bit chaotic, and with long accounts payable cycles. Different property managers had their own little “black book” of trades and vendors, different processes, different background checks. Sometimes we had no trades available that could do the work properly. Sometimes it turned out they didn’t have valid insurance.

MYVendor is a giant step forward in the right direction to ensuring a consistent, successful approach for all our clients. I’m excited to meet everyone and see how we can really create a win-win-win scenario!
