Green Motion held its 2017 international conference in Woburn, Bedfordshire in the United Kingdom at its international head office.
The management team of Green Motion, including the company's founder and CEO, Richard Lowden, welcomed representatives from its worldwide network from over 30 countries. Franchisees had the opportunity to meet staff members from each department including accounts & finance, business development, operations, central reservations, customer service, franchise development and marketing.
Richard Lowden and Chay Lowden also gave a presentation on this year's successes and the future developments that Green Motion has planned for 2018.
"This is our largest conference ever with us receiving a full uptake from our international network," said Lowden. "It was a fantastic opportunity to spend time with our franchisees and for them to meet our entire head office team and, of course, celebrate the successes of the year and focus on our future objectives."
Following its international conference, Green Motion held its annual car rental award ceremony. The awards are designed to celebrate individuals, franchise locations, and franchise countries within the Green Motion network. The award categories covered several topics including branding, revenue management, the environment, and delivering the highest levels of customer service.
Franchise countries that won awards included Green Motion Netherlands, Italy, the U.K., Croatia, Czech Republic, Iceland, Greece, Finland, Poland, Sweden, and operations in the United States (Orlando, Miami and San Diego).
The "Dedication to Green Motion Award" was presented to Sergio Ochoa, the founder of Green Motion Mexico. In addition to supporting the Green Motion brand and delivering high levels of customer service, Ochoa mobilized his entire network to collect and distribute aid following the earthquakes that hit Mexico.
"The awards ceremony was amazing and gave us the opportunity to mark the successes and triumphs of the Green Motion franchise family," said Lowden.
