November 15, 2011 – Mr. Electric, a residential and commercial electrical service and repair company with more than 200 franchises worldwide, has named Joel Worthington the new vice-president of Operations.

Worthington has worked as a franchise consultant and franchise development for Mr. Electric over the past 2.5 years.

“Becoming the vice president marks the beginning of an exciting new phase in my career,” he said. “The fact that I have already established close relationships with my coworkers will make this transition feel natural.”

As a previous employee of The Dwyer Group, he has an “excellent track record for high quality performance” and has over 20 years of experience in sales, management, and training, said the company. The Dwyer Group is a franchise management company that provides a support staff for the franchisees of Mr. Electric, Mr. Rooter, Mr. Appliance, Glass Doctor, The Grounds Guys, AireServ and Rainbow International.

“Joel’s extensive background in franchising and management makes him the perfect choice for Vice President of Operations,” said Jeff Meyers, president of Mr. Electric.  “His knowledge and experience with the Mr. Electric franchisees will make him a great asset to our company.”

Worthington will be responsible for helping the franchise consultants and support staff provide a positive impact on the financial health of the Mr. Electric franchisees.

Filling Worthington’s shoes as the franchise consultant is Kyle Miller, who has worked for Mr. Electric over the past year in the Systems Accounts and Franchise Development Department.
