Mr. Electric® of Phoenix Metro Entrepreneur Wins Sales Leader of the Year Award

(PHOENIX, AZ – July 16, 2007) Phoenix area resident and entrepreneur Mike Bauer came back home from an Atlanta trip last month with more than a tan and fond memories; he also returned with the Mr. Electric Sales Leader of the Year Award and praise from scores of friends and business associates.

The Sales Leader of the Year Award is presented to the Mr. Electric franchise who delivers the highest reported sales volume during the award year.

Bauer 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.

“This award is a reflection of my entire team’s caring, commitment and dedication,” said Bauer. “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 Maricopa and Pinal counties for trusting us with their business and will continue to provide the world-class service they expect and deserve.”

Bauer has owned and operated Mr. Electric of Phoenix Metro since 1999 and serves the electrical installation, repair and upgrade needs of all Maricopa and Pinal county residents.

“The Mr. Electric team is thrilled Mike earned the 2007 Sales Leader of the Year Award,” said Mr. Electric president Jeff Meyers. “Mike’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.”
