April Boyd Honored as Manager of the Year

Omaha, NE - The Maids International, corporate office of The Maids franchise system, recognized April Boyd as the 2011 Manager of the Year, the highest honor given to a The Maids manager, during its recent national conference in Omaha, Neb.

The Manager of the Year award is designed to honor the person who most consistently displays exceptional ability in managing a The Maids franchise.  The winner must excel in areas including team management, sales ability, customer relations, rapport with employees, and work ethic.

Boyd joined The Maids of Homewood in 2002, after seven years of management experience in retail.  Franchise owners David and Kathy Senseman hired Boyd not just because of her previous experience, but also because of her ability to connect with people. 

 “April demonstrates true southern hospitality,” shared Kathy Senseman. “She has an incredible rapport with both her employees and her customers, perfectly combining a sparkling personality with tremendous professionalism.”

Boyd was surprised and humbled by her selection as The Maids Manager of the Year.

“I come to work every day and I try to do the absolute best job I can do,” explained Boyd. “I was never looking for rewards. I’m just always pushing myself to do better.  I’ve been with The Maids for ten years, and I still feel like I’m learning.”

Boyd truly enjoys seeing the potential in team members and watching them succeed.  “I give all the credit to my employees,” she says.  “I couldn’t possibly do what they do day in and day out.” 

Boyd takes great pride in making customers happy. Mostly, though, she’s proud to provide her three children a good example of what it means to be honest, dependable, and hard-working.
