Brisbane-based pool and spa care franchise PoolWerx has appointed a new Franchise Development Executive to boost recruitment of top quality franchise partners as it continues its expansion.
Former National Sales Director United Franchise Group Jeremy Winter joins the PoolWerx outfit with over 10 years’ experience in the franchising industry working with franchise systems including Signarama and EmbroidMe.
Mr Winter said he looked forward to bringing his experience to one of Australia’s leading franchise systems.

“Working with PoolWerx is a great opportunity to work with an established company that still has a strong opportunity and strategy for growth while maintaining its commitment to franchise partner success.”
He said his role involved recruiting the best quality people to operate franchises.
“As Franchise Development Executive, my focus is on finding the best possible people to operate the franchises to ensure sustainable growth of the PoolWerx system and to achieve the business goals.
“I’ve always felt that if a business is a good fit, then it will be a profitable fit for both the franchisor and franchisee, and therefore finding the right candidates is critical.”
PoolWerx CEO John O’Brien welcomed Mr Winter to the team and said he brought a wealth of valuable experience with him.
“Jeremy has a wealth of experience in the franchising industry and he adds a depth of experience to our recruitment systems that will ensure we find quality franchise partners to achieve our growth goals,” he said.
