This annual award, which recognizes new offices or owners with outstanding revenue growth during their first six months of operation, was presented by the national, franchised staffing organization at the PrideStaff Annual Conference in New Orleans. Each year, PrideStaff Strategic-Partners from across the country meet at this conference to review results, exchange best practices, learn from world-renowned speakers, and improve their proficiency at owning and operating a full-service staffing firm.

“Receiving an award for outstanding revenue growth during my first year with the PrideStaff organization is a huge honor – and not something I could’ve achieved without the help of my amazing team members,” said Merrill. “I’m proud to be part of an organization that works so hard to support its Strategic-Partners’ success, and I’m excited to see what we can accomplish in the year ahead.”

“I’m thrilled to present this award to John, who assumed ownership and management of the DFW Mid-Cities office in 2018,” said PrideStaff COO Tammi Heaton. “By living out PrideStaff’s mission to ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,’ John and his team quickly generated momentum to escalate their performance within their local market.”
