In saying that, Jim’s Pool Care Australia would like to extend a huge congratulations to Chris Newman for winning Best In-Field Service Technician in Australia at the National Pool Industry Awards. Chris also received the gold prize for the In-Field Service Technician award in New South Wales.
We had the chance to have a chat to Chris and ask him a few questions regarding his journey as a Jim’s Pool Care Business Owner and Award Winner:
What originally motivated you to start a Jim’s Pool Care Business?
As I had been in the industry for 16 years prior to Jim’s I knew the effort it takes to start up, after researching the Jim’s model I believed it was the Pool business model to grow a business quickly. The rest is history, I grew it from 0 to 182 customers in 4 years just by following the system.
What part of your journey have you found the most rewarding?
The great thing about this industry you turn unhappy and frustrated pool owners to happy and content pool owners who start enjoying there investment with family and friends.
How do you set yourself apart from other Pool Service Technicians?
Maybe my attention to detail, I always treat customer how I would expect to be treated, I will not sell them anything that I wouldn’t buy. I make myself available for any question they may have or any advice they may need. I’m just there go to man.
Once again, a huge congratulations to Chris Newman from Jim’s Pool Care Shellharbour, these awards are no doubt much deserved. We are sure that there are many more awards to follow and we wish you all the best for the swimming season ahead.
