Local business woman, Ruth Swan, has been recognised as the Woman of the Year for 2008 in the MOB Excellence in Franchising Awards for ACT/NSW.
The award recognises and rewards the contribution of women to franchising and their community with a view to highlighting the exceptional value women bring to business.
"Winning this award has made my year! Receiving recognition for all the hard work and effort has made me feel a glowing sense of accomplishment and appreciation."
With over 12 years experience in business, Ruth currently owns and operates four successful Price Attack salons within the ACT. Operating four businesses within a relatively small area has given Ruth the opportunity to interact regularly with the community and to actively support it.
"The Canberra community has been so supportive of Price Attack stores – our customers are so loyal.They love the great value and huge range that our stores provide and the fact that all our staff are so friendly and knowledgeable."
Price Attack Managing Director, Barry Jarred, is full of praise for Ruth’s achievement. "Ruth is a fantastic example of how a Price Attack franchise provides an excellent career path for women, allowing them the opportunity to secure their financial futures, whilst supporting and growing their families."
"Ruth is a very driven and passionate business-woman who deserves every accolade that has been bestowed upon her."
Ruth’s supportive customers will be crossing their fingers and hoping that she takes out the National Award when the Franchising Council of Australia announces the winner in October. We wish Ruth the best of luck!
