Poolwerx has awarded its top performers at an awards ceremony at a three-day convention held in Fiji.
Poolwerx CEO Nic Brill said the convention attracted 400 delegates.
“With a challenging economic and business climate over the last 12 months, we recognise that for some of our partners, it has been tough. This is why our Poolwerx Convention theme, Move As One, was so important—it’s a reminder to everyone that no matter what is going on out there, together, we are one family cohort that will always support each other.
“Our theme embodies a powerful message, a clear understanding of our individual roles in achieving our common goal, and a commitment to grow together, allowing us all to embrace the challenges that lie ahead, confident in our ability to overcome them, together.
“Individually, we recognised some remarkable talent within our ranks, and collectively, we witnessed our franchise network continue to grow stronger.”

Soibhone and Alessandro Nascimento from Poolwerx Kalamunda, WA were named Poolwerx 2023 Franchise Partner of the Year. This award recognises outstanding achievements across a number of categories.
