An Interview with President and CEO Kim Gubera
Recently, PIRTEK USA President and CEO Kim Gubera were featured in an interview conducted by Adam Mendler, CEO of The Veloz Group. Ms. Gubera discussed the hydraulic and industrial hose service franchise opportunity, and what it means to be a leader. Also discussed are tips for becoming an effective leader, taking your leadership skills to the next level, and management advice.
The interview outlines Ms. Gubera’s career, and how she began her career as a staff account with U.S. Lawns. Ms. Gubera’s effective leadership is attributed to her focus on mentoring and developing employees, franchise owners, and employees of franchise owners to the greatest extent she is able.
Leaders can take their leadership skills to the next level by staying relevant, expanding their knowledge, and having mentors. By becoming people-centric, knowing your numbers, and staying true to your core values and culture, you can yield the best outcome over time.
Adam: In your experience, what are the key steps to growing and scaling your business?
Kim: While that is a very big question, I’ll give you one essential component for growing a business like PIRTEK USA that is a franchise. In franchising, you must stay close to your franchisees in order to see the business grow. This might be counterintuitive to what you would think. Franchisors might believe they only have to grow in a number of units to be successful, but we take a two-pronged approach: growing the individual franchise owner’s businesses and adding more franchise units. You stay close to the franchisees by listening and interacting. You must be open to not only giving feedback but to receiving feedback. We strive to have close relationships with all our owners, and we build that relationship through mutual trust and mutual respect.
