Mr. Electric® of McLennan County Employee Wins Woman of the Year Award

(WACO, TX – July 16, 2007) Donna Muhlman came back from an Atlanta trip last month with more than a tan and fond memories; she also returned with the Mr. Electric Woman of the Year Award and praise from friends and associates.

Muhlman works with and is married to Mike Muhlman at Mr. Electric of McLennan County.
The Woman of the Year Award is presented to a woman who is nominated by the franchise owner and selected by the home

office staff based on a history of efforts that strengthen and support the success of the franchise.

The Muhlmans 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.

“I am honored by this award and by my relationship with my husband Mike and the Mr. Electric team,” said Donna. “Our overall success depends on each of us doing all we can to support and appreciate our customers. Our Central Texas customers have been so good to us over the years and I’m just happy to be a part of their lives.”

“Nominating Donna for this award was an easy call to make and a personal pleasure as her husband,” added Mike. “I’m so blessed to have her as a wife and doubly-blessed to carry that relationship over into our professional lives. When people ask me how we do it, I give the credit to Donna. She’s the prize of my heart and the heart of my business.”

“The Mr. Electric team is thrilled Donna earned the 2007 Woman of the Year Award,” said Mr. Electric president Jeff Meyers. “Her multiple roles as office manager, dispatcher and overall focus on providing world-class service to her customers made the award an easy one to bestow. She is totally deserving of this honor.”
