Dwyer Franchising LLC recently was the national recipient of the 2018 Malden Mills Corporate Kindness Award. The organization was recognized in a special ceremony at the 23rd Annual Rescuer of Humanity Awards Dinner, recently held in Cleveland.
The event, sponsored by the Values-in-Action Foundation, annually recognizes local, national and international community leaders, businesses and outstanding educators for promoting kindness, care and respect to students and adults for a better society at-large.
Mike Bidwell, president and CEO of Dwyer Group, Dina Dwyer-Owens, co-chair of Dwyer Group, and Stewart Kohl, Co-CEO of The Riverside Co., Dwyer Group’s private equity partner; were in attendance to accept the award.
“The theme of this year’s event was ‘Values Matter,’ and that spoke straight to my heart,” said Dwyer-Owens, who is also the author of the popular business book Values Inc. “It is our ‘Code of Values’ at Dwyer Group that supports how we live and lead in business and in life across Dwyer Group and our many service brands. And Riverside has invested in us twice as a private equity partner, embracing how our values deliver value (profits).”
