“We are extremely pleased that Gil Hine, Amicia Hine and their team are joining our company. Gil, Amicia and the MHI leadership have done an excellent job of building a great company.

Our team is just as pumped as I am to partner with Worldwide Facilities and help contribute to their continuing success.”

Amicia Hine, CEO of MHI, adds, “Our vision for the continued success of the MHI business platform and the contribution we can make to the profitable growth of the combined companies is evident and compelling.
