Award winners for Queensland region
SWIMART Currimundi owners Janelle and Darren Brown are both life and work partners and together they have won Queensland Marketer of the Year 2018.
“We are very proud to win this award. It’s also great to receive recognition for our efforts,” Mrs Brown said.
Since opening the store 14 years ago, the couple have won more than 15 awards including National Franchisee of the Year, Best Presented Store, Retailer of the Year and Best Growth.
The pair credit their customer-focused approach and dedicated team, which includes son James, for their recent award win.
“We have a fantastic team who are always thinking and working towards providing better service,” Mrs Brown said.
The awards took place at the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort in Port Douglas.
This year, a total of 29 awards were presented to 15 franchise partners, five from Queensland including Swimart Currimundi.
“While Port Douglas is a beautiful location, the networking with all the other franchise partners was invaluable,” Mrs Brown said.
“We were also very excited to learn about the new marketing strategies, product promotions and innovative products which will make pool care easier for our customers.”
With spring just a few weeks away, Mr and Mrs Brown are recommending customers drop in for a free water test to ensure their pool or spa water balance is correct.
“We can provide the right chemicals and dosing information or we can engage one of our friendly, professionally trained pool technicians to ensure it’s safe for their family and friends to enjoy,” Mrs Brown said.
