Inexperienced Franchisee Wins Ewemove Franchise Of The Year Award
New kid on the block Ewemove Franchisee runs off with this year’s Franchise of the Year prize.
Ewemove franchisee, Chris Walthall is living proof of how industry experience is not a pre-requisite to building a successful franchise business. Newcomer and award-winning franchisee Walthall joined Ewemove in 2014 with no industry experience and high hopes. Today, the owner of the Leek and Hanley Ewemove franchise received Franchise of the Year award at the hybrid agent’s annual conference held at the Belfry golf resort.
The event was attended by over 150 delegates from all walks of life who were received by Ewemove’s new managing director Nick Neill. Neill stepped in after Ewemove’s founders David Laycock and Glenn Ackroyd stepped down last June. Amongst the event’s attendees were industry figures and guest speakers Peter Knight from The Property Academy, James Sinclair from Entrepreneurs Network, and Alex Rose from Hometrack.
During the event Neill commented: “This really was a fantastic event which saw our franchisees from across the country come together to celebrate what has been yet another remarkable year for us as a brand.
“The industry as a whole is continuing to face a number of challenges, but whilst other agencies are reporting stagnation and recurring profit warnings, we’re not only seeing our network grow in numbers month by month, but we’re witnessing the continued profitability of our franchisees across the UK.
“With our unique hybrid model, offering our on-the-ground agents with the ability to provide a personal face-to-face service on a local level whilst benefitting from cutting-edge technology and comprehensive support via our national operations centre, we’re in an exceptionally strong position for future growth and profitability and are very much looking forward to marking further successes over the months ahead.”
