The Poolwerx 2019 Gala Awards were held in Adelaide recently, recognising our Franchise Partners from across Australia and New Zealand who have achieved excellence in their business throughout the year.
The calibre of Franchise Partners was evident at this year’s awards, with several winning multiple categories – including Poolwerx Hamilton (New Zealand), who received the top accolade of the evening – Franchise Partner of the Year. Franchise Partners Pru and David Kimber were also awarded the regional title and inducted into the Poolwerx Hall of Fame.
The Gala Awards included a selection of categories including technical, brand, retail, mobile, B2B and innovation excellence, and featured as the closing event at our annual Convention. This culminated in three days of learning and development for our Franchise Partners as we head into the summer season.
John O’Brien, Poolwerx CEO and Founder, said the awards celebrate the effort and success of Franchise Partners, as well as their team’s dedication to providing outstanding service.
“Our winning Franchise Partners are the pinnacle of what can be achieved when you provide ongoing excellence in service, dedication to client support, and demonstration of ability to evolve, adapt and deliver through constant improvement.”
Prue and David Kimber started their business in Hamilton in 2011 and have grown their franchise into an enviable mobile and retail business with a revenue of $1.4 million.
“We’re thrilled to be recognised as Franchise Partner of the Year, and to be the first New Zealand franchise to win this award. This would not have been possible without the hard work and outstanding contribution from our team.”
