CALGARY, AB (October 18, 2012) – Dean and Christina Maillot of Rainbow International® Cleaning and Restoration of Alberta, received the coveted Don Dwyer Award of Excellence from The Dwyer Group®, holding company of Rainbow International, during the 2012 International Convention held in Grapevine, TX, last month.
The Don Dwyer Award of Excellence recognizes accomplishments across all spectrums of respect and achievement. It is a unique award to the organization in that it recognizes dedication, loyalty and promotion of The Dwyer Group Code of Values®. Employees, franchisees, master licensees and vendors are eligible.
For Dean and Christina Maillot, the award represents the most meaningful recognition and achievement. The award is a tribute to Don Dwyer, who began what would become The Dwyer Group in 1981 when he developed Rainbow International, a restoration and cleaning company.
“Dean and Christina live their lives and lead their business by the code of values and principles my father created as the compass for this company,” said Dina Dwyer-Owens, daughter of Don Dwyer and chairwoman and CEO of The Dwyer Group. “They go above and beyond to help their team, community and fellow franchisees.”
The 12th recipients of the award, Christina play a major role in the development of the Rainbow International Zees for Zees Outreach Program. The money from this fund helps Rainbow International franchisees that need assistance with travel expenses to attend various conventions. Dean is also a member of the Rainbow International Advisory Council.
“We are humbled to receive such a significant award,” Dean Maillot said. “It is an honor to be recognized with an award that embodies Don Dwyer’s legacy of leadership.”
“Dean and Christina are inspiring leaders and mentors within the Rainbow International system,” said president Rob White. “They willingly donate their time and graciously share advice and ideas, and our Rainbow International brand is better because of them.”
In recent years, the Maillots have received the Sales Leader of the Year, Restorer of the Year and Franchisee of the Year awards.
