ROSENBERG – Chrissy Ortega, owner of Benjamin Franklin Plumbing in Rosenberg, Texas, was honored with the Woman of the Year Award during the 2023 corporate conference on April 4 in Phoenix. This award is given to the women who have made the greatest contribution to the success of the franchise. The recipient is nominated in writing and then selected by the home office staff.

“As the plumbing industry is typically a male-dominated industry, it is important that we empower and recognize women in the workplace. Winning this award is meaningful to me and I am grateful to the team at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing for recognizing my dedication and unwavering commitment to the brand,” said Chrissy Ortega of Rosenberg’s Benjamin Franklin Pluming. “I’ve worked hard alongside my husband, who is my partner in the business, and I could not have been as successful without the unwavering support of him and the team. We have achieved a lot and continue to build on everything we have learned to make 2023 an even better year.”

“For more than two decades, Chrissy’s contributions and dedication to her role have been integral to the success of Rosenberg’s Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, and we are honored to have her as part of the Authority Brands family,” said Lance Sinclair, President of Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. “Chrissy is proud to streamline operations and improve efficiency at the Rosenberg site. Their success is vital to our business and we look forward to their continued growth in the years to come.”

This award recognition comes ahead of the Authority Brands Convention, which will be held in Orlando, Florida this fall.
