Did you know? Our new Vice President of Operations has visited more than 50 countries! We're excited to welcome Paul Packevicius to the team.
Hello, Grounds Guys Nation!
I am very excited to be joining The Grounds Guys family and being part of the future success of this great network of franchise owners and corporate staff members. First and foremost, I want to thank Dianna Worthington and acknowledge that I will be stepping into very big shoes. I look forward to continuing to build on the great initiatives she has implemented for this brand over the years.
A little background on me: I am originally from Europe, but have been living in the US for the past 17 years. I have worked in the franchising industry for almost nine years in consulting positions for multiple brands across Neighborly both in the US and internationally. A fun fact about me is that I have been fortunate enough to live in five different countries for an extensive period of time. I have also visited more than 50 countries.
The success of each franchise owner is at the core of the overall success of The Grounds Guys network. Success has many definitions, but one important aspect of success for every business owner is profitability. By making franchise owner profitability our objective, with measurable key results for how we will achieve that objective, we can work together as a team and reach new heights. Any objective we create as a network is based on our Code of Care and Code of Values. To me, our integrity and company culture is a fundamental differentiator in a competitive grounds maintenance market.
I am committing myself to the success of our brand and look forward to meeting and getting to know you all during the months to come. I wish you all a profitable 2020 and will leave you with words of Zig Ziglar: "Profitability comes from loyalties, productivity, and having a character base from which to work."
