Revive! used its annual conference to reward its franchise owners and support staff for their contribution to a highly successful year for the company.

More than 145 people attended the event, which was held at the Stratford Manor Hotel, and ended with the company’s awards, which were presented by Revive! Managing Director Mark Llewellyn and Operations Director Terry Mullen.

Among the winners was Russell Hudson, owner of Revive! West Lincolnshire, who was named Franchisee of the Year for the second consecutive year.

Also honoured were Nathan Holmes, of Revive! Cambridge, Franchisee Progress Award; Adam Smith, Revive! Luton, Outstanding Service Award; Richard Williamson, Revive! Watford, Outstanding Sales Award, and Scott Atkinson, Revive! Leicester South, Excellence in National Accounts Award.

Llewellyn said: “It has been a fantastic year for Revive!. We have worked long and hard to raise the standards within the cosmetic SMART repair industry and to establish the technique as a mainstream option for top quality small area paintwork and wheel repair.

“There’s no doubt times are tough, but our network of technicians continue to grow their businesses through delivering excellence in quality and service, working together as a team to maintain Revive!’s reputation as one of the country’s leading cosmetic SMART repairer.”

As well as the awards, the event featured a demonstration of new products and industry techniques and a number of guest speakers from the franchise industry, including former British Franchise Association (bfa) chairman and current bfa trustee, Melvin Lusty, and the 2011 bfa Franchisee of the Year Award winners Catharine and Mike Chalton, from Home Instead Senior Care.
