TAMPA, FL, March 04, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Women are making a major impact in male dominated industries as we celebrate International Women’s Day, the global day of celebration for the social, economic and cultural achievements of women. This is evident at College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk and Moving®. In an industry that is typically dominated by males, the influence of women is strong at this company, with a heavily predominate female leadership team at the corporate office and a large number of female franchisees across the country.
When it comes to gender equality, College H.U.N.K.S. holds itself to exacting standards and has become a standout in its field. There are 26 female franchise owners across the U.S. offering their communities and surrounding areas high-quality, stress-free moving and junk hauling services, providing considerable value while furthering the benefits of gender equality across the brand.
Several women hold corporate leadership roles at College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk & Movie. Kelsie Ackman holds the position of Vice President of Franchise Development and serves as legal counsel for the corporate office, informed by her experience as a business attorney. Mary Mills, Vice President of Marketing, has been recognized and awarded throughout the franchise industry for her wide-ranging marketing expertise. Laura Butcaris, Director of Franchise Performance, leads a team of coaches who work directly to increase franchise partner revenue, profits, and satisfaction.
Women are also leading the charge on the local level for the values-focused moving company. For the first time this year, a female was nominated for and won the coveted HUNK of the Year prize, which is awarded to the local employee who exemplifies the company’s core values. Courtney Flanagan of Orlando, Florida has been with College H.U.N.K.S. since 2016. Starting in an administrative support role at the corporate office, she quickly rose in the ranks to her current position of Senior Business Development Manager. Courtney’s achievements in communication and brand development combined with her ability to implement the company’s core value to “listen, fulfill and delight” have earned her this company-wide recognition.
“The driving belief that influences gender equality within College H.U.N.K.S. is that individuals with the right attributes deserve a leader’s role regardless of gender – period,” said Nick Friedman, co-founder and President of College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk and Moving. “Gender equality isn’t just a women’s issue, it’s an issue of good business sense. We are greatly appreciative of the women who devote their dynamic energy and innovative ideas to the development of the College H.U.N.K.S. brand and are proud to have them on our team for many future shared successes.”
