Neighbourly, the award-winning home service franchise group, has appointed Philip Carr as UK managing director
Carr will take over the reins from Jeff Meyers, who has been vice-president of international operations for the past seven years, and will be responsible for both managing the business and supporting the growth and expansion of the six brands across the UK.
Meyers will continue to head up Neighbourly UK during this transitional process, and over the next six to nine months departments and brands will transfer over to Carr’s responsibility.
Carr said, “I am excited with my new appointment at Neighbourly and intend to build on our dominant position as a leader in services, helping people to repair, maintain and enhance their homes and businesses. I can see how much potential there is to strengthen and grow our portfolio of brands in the UK and establish new strategic partnerships to help us maximise the breadth and value of our franchise opportunities. I’m looking forward to leading and extending our network further and to contributing even more towards the continuing profitable growth of Neighborly globally.”
Meyers said, “It’s always been Neighborly’s and my desire to have strong local leadership in the UK, and we’ve definitely got that in Philip. The UK will always be special to me and I’m really proud of everything we have built, but it’s time for me to hand direction to someone who has real roots here.”
Meyers will return to Neighborly’s Global Headquarters in Waco, Texas, where he will take on other international related projects, and spend more time with his wife, children and grandchildren. He will continue to head up the Neighbourly operations in Germany and Austria and will remain as a vital conduit for the UK.
Neighborly won the Best Property & Home Maintenance Franchise category of the Global Franchise Awards 2019. The brand in the UK consists of six companies with over 250 franchisees across the UK. The brands include Aire Serv, Bright & Beautiful, Countrywide Grounds Maintenance, Drain Doctor, Mr. Electric and Dream Doors, with three support offices in Banbury, Manchester and Portsmouth.
