Ready to Double Down in Hernando County
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas - except when what happens is a SERVPRO convention!
Returning home after five days in Sin City, Jeremy George, Executive Director of SERVPRO of Hernando County, brought back with him new ideas, a green and orange kid’s bounce house, and a renewed energy.
“It was a tremendous week. I was much luckier in the classroom than at the blackjack table – I came away with deeper insight into our plans to further improve our communication with clients, team members, and commercial partners, and inspiration to continue to grow and develop our commercial project abilities and expertise. I’m ready to double down and bring SERVPRO of Hernando County to the next level.”
Along with President Andrew T. Froelich, George joined a record-setting group of more than 2,800 franchise owners, key staff, and corporate representatives for the 47th Annual SERVPRO Convention at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas from June 26 to 30. The convention program was designed to unite franchise owners, team members, distributors, associates, and corporate employees in support of SERVPRO’s top three initiatives: Expansion into the commercial workplace, leadership training, and effective communication. It featured a keynote address by motivational speaker Connie Podesta and 28 workshop sessions focused on leadership training and providing resources designed to help each franchise grow and better serve their community.
On behalf of the SERVPRO of West Pasco team, Froelich and George accepted an award for outstanding revenue performance, presented by the corporate owners at the convention Awards Ceremony.
“SERVPRO understands running a small business is a challenge,” said Sue Steen, Chief Executive Officer of SERVPRO Industries, Inc. “Our annual convention gives us the opportunity to recognize individual franchisees that have excelled at building their business, as well as enhancing SERVPRO’s reputation as an industry leader in disaster cleanup, restoration and remediation services. We offer our sincere congratulations to this year’s award winners and to all of the dedicated professionals who work hard every day to provide world-class service to their customers.”
Said Froelich: “While building a successful small business takes work and dedication, our success is also a reflection of the support and exceptional disaster remediation solutions and training we receive as a member of the SERVPRO franchise network. We are proud to accept this award on behalf of our business and our employees, and are grateful to SERVPRO for giving us the tools, framework and training we need to be both successful and a resource to our community when disaster strikes.”
