A surge of activity – Mr Electric appoints new UK head to extend network

The Dwyer Franchising Group has announced that decorated entrepreneur, Phillip Milburn, will bring his 20 years of business experience to the Mr Electric and Aire Serv UK franchises in his new position as he heads up UK operations for both brands.

Mr Milburn attained this position after developing a sterling reputation as a capable businessman with his company Highway Windscreens UK. He diversified the windscreen business into commercial and domestic glazing before a FTSE 250 company completed its lucrative acquisition.

Mr Milburn is extremely well regarded in the UK business world and has twice been a finalist for the Ernest and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award and was a non-executive chairman for ACS Building and Maintenance Services.

Director of UK franchising for The Dwyer Group Limited UK, Jeff Meyers, said: “We are thrilled with the selection of Phillip to head our UK branch. Milburn has a rare blend of strong business acumen coupled with trade service leadership. His experience speaks for itself and having Phillip place emphasis on building relationships will only help to strengthen brand growth in the UK.”

Mr Milburn added: “We have a good base of Mr Electric and Aire Serv Franchisees in the UK and we are now looking to significantly increase that number over the next few years. There really are a lot of exciting opportunities in the UK at the moment and we are looking forward to working with our existing and our new franchisees to develop these areas of growth.
