AmeriSpec Omaha/Lincoln office wins
2012 Marion E. Wade Master Award
The Omaha/Lincoln AmeriSpec office, which is owned and operated by Thomas Sutko, received the Marion E. Wade Master Award at the AmeriSpec International Convention, held Feb. 16-18, 2012, in Sarasota, FL.
Each year, AmeriSpec recognizes a franchise owner who proves to be the best example of excellence in business operation. In the tradition of ServiceMaster founder Marion E. Wade, this award focuses on business excellence, growth and stability.
Out of the top 5 Marion E. Wade Expert Awards, only one is chosen to receive the Marion E. Wade Master Award.
“Our international convention is a wonderful time to honor our owners who have achieved the highest level of excellence in their business,” said Kathy Thiessen, AmeriSpec Vice President and General Manager. “Tom has done an exceptional job growing his business while focusing on operations and earning a 99% customer satisfaction rating from his customers. He has developed a great relationship with his team of employees and with the customers that he serves. We all want to say that Tom and his team have our admiration and applause, and we are all glad that he and his team are a part of our AmeriSpec family.”
Sutko’s office also was awarded the Platinum Circle Award, which recognizes businesses based on their annual gross revenue. The AmeriSpec Nebraska office was the No. 1 franchise in the United States based on gross revenues.
“It is such a great honor to win the Marion E. Wade Master Award in addition to these other awards,” said Sutko. “We’ve worked hard on differentiating our services while focusing on creating value and minimizing the risk of the inspection process unlike any other inspection company in Nebraska.”
“I’m particularly pleased with our team’s efforts in meeting our customers’ expectations and becoming the Realtors’ ‘true partner in the community’,” he added. “It’s wonderful to be able to take a step back, realize what we’ve accomplished and enjoy the moment with our fellow owners and staff.”
Sutko purchased the Omaha and Lincoln offices of AmeriSpec Inspection Services in spring 2010 from John Wanninger, who started the local franchise in 1997. Since that time, the company has grown to a team of more than 20 employees that has performed more than 100,000 inspections in Nebraska.
The Omaha/Lincoln franchise also has won the Best of Omaha award for home inspection services in 2011 as well as 2012.
