Atlanta was this year's meeting spot for the first network meeting for U-Save franchisees. The group's Americas management team, headed up by Brenda Azua, chief Americas officer, brought together the U-Save network from neighborhood and local locations and leading airport operations for the first time since the pandemic hit.
President of U-Save International Richard Lowden kicked off the event with an introductory keynote sharing his vision for the company's next chapter of its growth, with the brand initially focusing on building upon its strong presence within the domestic U.S. market. Azua then presented U-Save's strategic objectives and CPO Chay Lowden zoomed in from London to present the technical innovations that are being introduced into the U-Save network.
This was followed by a special segment delivered by Andrew Girges, owner of the Orlando Airport franchise, who shared his insight, experience, and journey to success with the brands. The franchisees also had the opportunity to quiz the entire Americas team with a team panel.
"The event was a resounding success, with the best element being finally having the opportunity to meet with the individual franchisees in person and celebrate their journey with the U-Save brand, said Lowden in a statement.
U-Save will be exhibiting at this year's International Car Rental Show in Las Vegas April 16-18.
