Our Team“My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me” – Henry Ford
Any business is only as good as it’s people. When it’s a franchised business this is even more important as these are your partners.
A Car Care Franchisee is supported by a team of experienced business people that are based in their state. This provides franchisees with local support from people who not only understand business but also the local conditions.
When combined, our Master Franchisees have about 200 years experience and as you can see below come from a variety of backgrounds.
Car Care Australia – Mike Stringer
Mike spent twelve years in Sales & Marketing with the office equipment side of Canon in the UK. As Marketing General Manager he oversaw all aspects of operations including distribution, sales and marketing and product development as the products moved from stand alone units to integrated solutions utilising new digital technologies.
It was during this period that Mike was first exposed to franchising whilst working closely with the two main quickprint franchises Kall Kwik (Kwik Copy in Australia) and Prontaprint to develop their use of digital technologies.
Upon leaving Canon he became involved in various start ups in the technology space working with many blue chip companies including Shell, BBC and Apple.
Mike returned to Australia with his family in 2004, purchasing Housework Heroes. The Car Care business was purchased in April 2005 with a view to expanding the brand throughout Australia. The purchase of United Home Services in 2010 will enable future technical developments that will help strengthen all the companies.
In summary, Mike has extensive experience in building companies and developing brands in a rapidly changing, highly competitive market.
Mike was also WA State President and board member of the Franchise Council of Australia from 2008-2014 and is still an active WA Committee Member.
