The Marion E Wade Award (Franchisee of the Year) is the most prestigious award ServiceMaster presents and is the pinnacle of achievement for a franchise within the company.
The award was given to ServiceMaster Mercia this year as the company and its employees have displayed the highest achievement in pursuit of excellence and professional management in the ServiceMaster tradition.
Kevin Harden, Managing Director, has been trading as ServiceMaster Mercia since November 2008 and has grown to become a multi-million-pound business in that time, purchasing new local territories along the way.
The business cleans over 140 offices, medical centres, schools and warehouses across the East and West Midlands and employs over 300 cleaning staff to complete these regular jobs.
Kevin said – “We are particularly proud to receive this award in 2021 when we have all faced very difficult challenges due the Covid -19 pandemic. Our management team and all their support workers have really stepped up to the mark this year. It is due to their efforts and dedication that we have been able to not only service our loyal customer base but also grow our business in this difficult business climate”.
Guy Strang, ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Brand Manager added,
“Kevin is a model franchisee that is always looking to improve and expand his business in any way he can. I’d like to personally congratulate Kevin on winning the Marion E Wade Award and look forward to seeing what the future holds for him and his business.”
