June 01, 2016 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas – The Dwyer Group, Inc., one of the world’s largest franchising companies of trade service brands, has announced the return of franchise marketing veteran Lori Johnson as a Vice President of Brand Management.

In her new role, Johnson will guide the brand management teams for Mr. Rooter, Rainbow International, Glass Doctor, Mr. Electric, Aire Serv, and Dwyer Group International concepts.

“I have been overjoyed by the gracious welcome back and am eager to share the skill sets I have acquired over the last few years,” Johnson said. “I feel like I am returning to a family, and the family has grown beyond belief.”

“We’re excited to welcome Lori back to Dwyer Group,” said Mike Bidwell, president and CEO of Dwyer Group, Inc. “She is a great team leader, and her experience and consistent success on a wide variety of projects make her the perfect candidate for this role. I am looking forward to seeing her ideas and work come to life.”

Johnson left in 2013 to work at the world-renowned St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in Tennessee, where she rose to become director of marketing strategy and planning. She was responsible for overseeing the development of high-level integrated, multi-channel marketing strategies with the goal of promoting St. Jude brand awareness and fundraising efforts. While there, her business partners exceeded fundraising goals all three years.

“I am very excited to return to Dwyer Group during such an exciting period of growth,” said Johnson. “The company and its wonderful family of service brands have made amazing strides in recent years and I look forward to helping elevate the legacy brands to the next level.”
