Freedom Boat Club Franchise of the Year Winners

Venice, Fla., Nov. 27, 2017 – Lisa Almeida and Kevin Seelig, owners and partners of the Freedom Boat Club franchise in Jacksonville, St. Augustine and the newly launched location in Ponte Vedra, received four major national awards at the 2017 Freedom Boat Club National Franchise Conference held recently in Ft. Myers, FL.

Topping the list is the most coveted award of all, the 2017 Freedom Boat Club Franchise of the Year, given to the club with the overall top performance over multiple categories.

“I am beyond thrilled that we have been chosen for this prestigious designation from our Freedom Boat Club family,” said Almeida. “I am so proud of our entire staff for all their hard work and dedication.”

Additional recognition for the franchise team included the inaugural Membership Executive of the Year award given to North America’s top Freedom Boat Club sales professional. Staff member George Biastre took home this top honor.

The franchise also received recognition as a two-year member of the National Marketing Advisory Council and for its participation as a National Charity Marketing Partner in behalf of its contributions for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

“We are very pleased to recognize Lisa Almeida, Kevin Seelig, George Biastre and the entire team for an outstanding year,” said Freedom Boat Club President and CEO John Giglio. “Their hard work and effort in growing the club and marketing the brand, coupled with their recent expansion into Ponte Vedra and their high level of commitment to providing excellent member service, placed this franchise in a league all its own.”

“Kevin and I are lucky that we have been able to surround ourselves with a team of professionals who are passionate about Freedom Boat Club and who strive to make our locations the very best for our members,” said Almeida. “We invite everyone to come visit us at any of our three locations to see all that Freedom Boat Club offers.”
