Gerald Alvey of SERVPRO, Franklin County, joined a group of high-performing franchisees who were recognized during an event at the recent SERVPRO Annual Convention.

SERVPRO of Franklin County received the Director’s Platinum Award. More than 2,500 owners, key staff and corporate representatives attended the annual event, held in Seattle at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel June 24-28.

“We have a dedicated group of disaster remediation professionals at SERVPRO of Franklin County, and we’re proud to accept this award on behalf of the entire team,” said Alvey. “Our business is just one of many extraordinary small businesses in the SERVPRO Franchise System, all of which benefit from the innovative tools, the business framework, and the ongoing training SERVPRO provides.”

The 2017 convention theme, “Every Day Is Game Day,” was a thread running through the 50 breakout sessions and three general sessions available to franchise owners and key team members in attendance.

“The focus of the company as a whole is on providing the tools and training these individuals need to succeed,” said Sue Steen, chief executive officer of Servpro Industries, Inc. “This annual gathering is our opportunity to share the latest in technology and insights with our owners, to congratulate this year’s award winners, and thank the extraordinary entrepreneurs — the team that has kept us at the top of our business category year after year.”
