FASTSIGNS celebrates its franchisee at its annual convention

FASTSIGNS the signage, graphics and visual communications, has recognised its brightest at their annual convention.

Franchisees and their staff, head office employees and key suppliers from around the UK gathered to celebrate individuals and businesses that have performed exceptionally over the last year. The aim of the event is to congratulate high achievers while sharing inspiring success stories the organisation.

The stand out winners of this years annual convention were father and son partnership Chris and Andy Simpson who picked up four awards for their Leeds franchise. They won the overall Sales Achievement Award and picked up the Sales Improvement, Project of the Year and Marketing Awards.

David and Carolyn Riddell from Gloucester won Franchise Partner of the Year Award. Among others was franchisee finalists Jenny Boreham of Chelmsford and Mark Phelps of Kingston Upon Thames who received second and third places respectively in the Sales Achievement category.

Garth Allison, the UK Managing Director of FASTSIGNS, commented: "We have seen some astonishing success this year, with many of the franchises performing better than ever. Our franchisee winners have worked intelligently to find new ways to grow their businesses, and have consistently gone the extra mile to keep their customers happy. But they couldn't do it without the ongoing support of employees and suppliers, which is why we believe it is so important to recognise them as well. The awards ceremony is always the highlight of our annual convention, but this year it was especially uplifting and energising."
