Mr. Electric® of Clark County Entrepreneur Wins Multiple Professional Awards

(VANCOUVER, WA – July 16, 2007) Vancouver resident and entrepreneur Jim Kleiser came back home from an Atlanta trip last month with more than a tan and fond memories; he also returned with the Mr. Electric Service from the Heart and Personal Achievement awards and praise from scores of friends and business associates.

The Service from the Heart Award is new to Mr. Electric and came about as a result of Kleiser’s charitable work in the Vancouver community, most notably helping make the home of a teenager with cerebral palsy more handicap accessible. His team spent a Saturday in March, donating their time, labor and materials, to improve a life.

The Personal Achievement Award is presented to the Mr. Electric franchisee who attains outstanding achievement in sales, manpower growth, franchise development or personal growth during the award year. Kleiser was noted for building his business in a short amount of time and putting together a team of customer service focused professionals.

Kleiser attended The Dwyer Group® Annual Reunion June 24-27 in Atlanta. Reunion is a festive event designed to bring the many concepts of The Dwyer Group together annually for updates, inspirational speakers, informative business-specific classes and, most importantly, fellowship amongst the thousands of gifted and dedicated individuals that own and operate their own franchise.

“Both award are a reflection of my entire team’s caring, commitment and dedication,” said Kleiser. “To us, it’s about more than just doing a job. The Mr. Electric system helps us build long-term relationships with our customers. With us, they know they can count on courteous, professional and fast service. We’re grateful to the good people of our area for trusting us with their business and will continue to provide the world-class service they expect and deserve.”

Kleiser has owned and operated Mr. Electric of Clark County since 2005 and serves the electrical installation, repair and upgrade needs of Vancouver and all Clark County residents.

“The Mr. Electric team was honored to create and bestow upon Jim the first ever Service from the Heart Award and the Personal Achievement Award,” said Mr. Electric president Jeff Meyers. “Jim’s business exemplifies everything that makes the Mr. Electric philosophy unique: commitment, caring, faith and perseverance. He is a true servant-leader and we all feel blessed he is on our team.”
