05/06/2013 |

Computer Troubleshooters and Geeks On Call held their first joint national conference in late April at the Wyndham Hotel in Cleveland. Cleveland is home to Merrymeeting Group’s corporate offices for both Computer Troubleshooters and Geeks On Call. One of the highlights of the four day conference was the announcement of the 2013 Franchisee of the Year awards presented by each company. 

Computer Troubleshooters bestowed this well-deserved award on Richard Warren of Fuquay Varina, North Carolina. Richard joined Computer Troubleshooters in 1999, making him one of the organization’s earliest franchisees. He became the Master Franchisee for North Carolina in 2000 and is currently an Assistant National Director for both Computer Troubleshooters and Geeks On Call. Richard is appreciated by his colleagues for his skills and experience plus his professional generosity as he spends countless hours coaching new franchise owners helping them become successful franchise owners.

Geeks On Call was delighted to acknowledge Paul Phelps of Hampton Roads, Virginia as the recipient of their 2013 franchisee award. Paul opened his Geeks On Call franchise in 2001 after retiring as a Navy Chief Electronics Technician. Through diligence and hard work, he has consistently received the highest possible ratings from his loyal following of clients. Terms such as outstanding, highest quality of work, friendly, goes above and beyond the call duty are heard not only from Paul’s clients, but from the entire community at Geeks On Call.

In addition to our congratulations to both Paul Phelps and Richard Warren, we want to acknowledge the following franchisees for their long-term commitment to our organizations.
