Sport Clips Welcomes New Franchise Team Members
Sport Clips has announced it has brought on two professional team members to its already powerhouse corporate organization, passionate about helping our team leaders find growth in franchise ownership.
Ashley Whitlock started with Sport Clips in May 2022 as a Field Marketing Coordinator, organizing grand openings around the U.S. In Nov. 2022, Whitlock was promoted to Lead Generation Specialist, working with key suppliers to attract new franchisees.
“I can pinpoint the exact decision I made in college that led me to my current role,” Whitlock said. “I was introduced to Sport Clips my sophomore year of college, before I was even looking or even considering jobs after I graduated. I couldn’t be more grateful for this team that supported me before I was even a part of it. The culture is what made me join, and that same culture is what we show our Team Leaders.”
Andrea Rokovich began her Sport Clips career in the IT department as a Support Specialist in May 2016, and was quickly promoted to Project Coordinator in March 2017. Now, Rokovich has been promoted again to Franchise Administration Specialist, working with document production, brand excellence, and data management.
“The two reasons I love working for Sport Clips are, I love our company culture, and I love the opportunities Sport Clips affords us to give back to our community through their many philanthropic efforts,” she said. “I love my job because we are a team in every sense of the word. We encourage and support each other in daily activities, and rally together to ensure every project and initiative meets Sport Clips exceptional standards.”
At Sport Clips, we are always supporting our team members, investing in their career growth and upward mobility, as well as giving them every opportunity to learn, advance and evolve in our company. Ever since Sport Clips was founded nearly 30 years ago, we’ve ingrained into our culture a mission that puts the future of our team members first. Everyone on the Sport Clips team is empowered, from the leadership team to Team Leaders to store managers and stylists, to find the most growth and meaning in their careers.
“In any business, the competitive advantage is the people that make up the organization,” says Gordon Logan, Founder of Sport Clips. “We’re looking for people with passion and people who love people. We’re looking for people who want to build teams and see their teams succeed. If we can attract the Team Leaders that focus on their teams, that’s the right fit. We believe success flows up.”
In turn, by making sure everyone in our entire organization feels appreciated and is given every opportunity to grow, Sport Clips has cultivated a company value with team members invested in the brand’s future.
“Culture is key,” says Julie Vargas, Vice President of Career Development & Team Member Engagement. “If you take care of your people, they will take care of you. It sounds so simple, but it’s so important. If you have happy stylists, they will go above and beyond for your customers. But just as importantly, if you take care of your people, they will stay with you, they will be loyal to you, and they will drive your success.”
