25 Jun 2013 Pride In Partnership Winners
Arthur Rutenberg Homes celebrated its 22nd annual Pride In Partnership event recently.
Held once a year, Pride in Partnership brings together ARH franchisees and vendors partners from throughout Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee together for two days of meetings culminating with an Awards Dinner in which Builder of the Year, Best Model Plan, Builder Gold Cup, and Vendor of the Year are awarded.
This year’s Builder of Year was awarded to Dale Kinsell of Barry Rutenberg & Associates and Kinsell Custom Homes. Dale was honored for operating the best overall franchise and setting high standards of excellence in marketing, financial management, customer satisfaction, construction quality and contribution to the strength and quality of the Arthur Rutenberg Homes franchise system.
This year’s Chairman’s Award went to Derek Nelson of Nelson Homes. The Chairman’s Award is an award to recognize special achievement and is not awarded every year. Derek was honored for his consistent support of the growth of the ARH Franchise System.
The Builder Gold Cup Award went to Jim Sanders and Larry Sandles of SandStar Homes for the second year in a row. The Builder Gold Cup is awarded to the franchise with the highest customer satisfaction rating this past year based on customer surveys.
The Best Model Award was presented to Nelson Homes for the Marbella model located in The Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch. The Best Model Interior Designer this year is Angie Thomas for her outstanding work on Marcus Allen Homes’ Bermuda model at Palencia in Ponte Vedra.
