Dwyer Group® Announces New Head of Mr. Electric® and Aire Serv® in UK
The Dwyer Group is pleased to announce Philip Milburn has accepted the position of Head of Mr. Electric and Aire Serv®, Dwyer (UK Franchising). Milburn brings over 20 years of experience to this position with frontline service-based companies.
Milburn has enjoyed a successful business career, first growing Highway Windscreens (UK) Limited to be a national franchise and after investment by venture capitalists, re-purchasing the franchise network. He subsequently instigated diversification into commercial and domestic glazing, culminating in the business becoming Highway Glass Limited, the UK's largest provider of emergency glazing services, working predominately for the insurance industry. A FTSE 250 company eventually acquired Highway Glass.
A two-time finalist of the Ernest & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and former Non-Executive Chairman of ACS Building & Maintenance Services Limited, Millburn has a strong background in establishing and building relationships with clients. His 15 years of experience with Highway/Homeserve, and the connections he has made in other various industries, will be a huge asset to the Dwyer Group.
“We are thrilled with the selection of Philip to head our UK branch. Milburn has a rare blend of strong business acumen coupled with trade service leadership. His experience speaks for itself and having Philip place emphasis on building relationships will only help to strengthen brand growth in the UK," said Jeff Meyers, Director of Dwyer (UK Franchising) Limited.
“We have a good base of Mr. Electric and Aire Serv franchisees in the UK and we are now looking to significantly increase that number over the next few years. There really are a lot of exciting opportunities in the UK at the moment and we are looking forward to working with our existing and our new franchisees to develop these areas of growth," stated Milburn.
