The President’s Award is given to six franchise owners that have created consistent revenue and gross profit growth over the past three years. With that, the owners were also recognized for their service excellence, community involvement and participation in internal Spherion initiatives.

Vicki’s leadership is unrivaled in her market as she continues to build a successful operation focused on providing top-notch service to its clients.”

Koon and her team are involved with the local chambers of commerce, the local Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) chapters, local economic development corporations, American Builders and Contractors and the South Texas Manufacturing Association. The team is also involved with numerous charitable organizations such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), the Arthritis Foundation, Infinite Love and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children.
