PHOENIX, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Franchise Owner James Mount, has won the prestigious Leadership Award at the recent EmployBridge Franchise Division conference. In partnership with his sister-in-law, Karen Mount, James owns and operates 12 staffing offices under the Westaff and Remedy Intelligent Staffing brands in New England and New York.
"This award recognizes the outstanding contribution that James has made to our Franchise Division," said Steve Mills, Franchise Division President. "He's been a leader for a very long time. His contribution can be found in every facet of our business from our enhanced and improved risk program for Franchisees to the way we source and recruit Associates. His goal is always 'we' and never 'me.' It's not uncommon for James to argue a position that is not best for him, but benefits the majority. He's become a regular mentor for other Franchisees and an important sounding board for me. I value his opinion and take his counsel. I usually come away from a conversation with a different point of view."
In addition to being a leader within EmployBridge, James is also busy in his personal life. He is an active Rotarian who has served as Board Member, President and Treasurer of the Colchester-Milton Rotary Club, he is a committed member and former Deacon of his local church and has given back through missions overseas to help those less fortunate. He also serves his home city of South Burlington on its Energy Committee.
"I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to be a successful business owner," says James. "With that good fortune, came a lot of hard work and much responsibility. It's a true pleasure to be able to help our Associates find regular, rewarding work and to help our Clients meet their business goals on a daily basis. We're a true family business. Karen and I treat everyone as though they're part of our extended family."
