Comcast-Spectacor Thrives in Its Customer Service Philosophy!

Spectra, operators of the Mattamy Athletic Centre, has adopted a customer service philosophy and catch phrase to be used with all of its teams, facilities and entities. Whenever you encounter a Spectra employee they will greet you with “How you doin’?” and a big smile. It’s all part of the company’s HYD Customer Service Initiative.

It’s all about giving our customers the ultimate sports and entertainment experience. It’s also a way of measuring how we are performing as a company," added former Comcast-Spectacor President & CEO Peter Luukko.

“Every one of our customers are our Most Valuable Players in our business,” added Luukko. “We will do whatever it takes to make our guests have the best possible experience each and every time they come to our facility or come in contact with our employees.”

Do Unto Others As You Would Have Done Unto You. Treat co-workers, vendors, and customers with respect, fairness, and courtesy. Great relationships yield great results.

Create new and unique ideas to drive our business. All employees, whether Sales, Service, Finance, or Operations, contribute to a customer's decision to repeat business with Comcast-Spectacor.
