Liberty Power Celebrates 10 Years in Business by Rewarding Customers, Channel Partners, and Sales Agents
FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Liberty Power, one of the nation’s fastest growing and largest independent energy retailers, announces the company is celebrating 10 years in business. Since its founding in December 2001, Liberty Power has realized steady and significant organic growth and an expanding national presence thanks to its strong network of sales channel partners, their sales agents and loyal customers. Now serving more than 100,000 commercial accounts across 13 states, the company wanted to show its appreciation to its customers and sales channels through its 10th Anniversary Customer Appreciation Grand Drawing.
“This is an important milestone in Liberty Power’s history, and our success is directly tied to our loyal customers, as well as the relentless focus of our sales channels and employees on delivering value to those customers,” said David Hernandez, co-founder & CEO. “We’ve seen many other retail energy providers come and go over the last decade. The last 10 years have presented some challenges, including natural disasters, an economic downturn, and credit crisis, so we are especially proud and delighted to celebrate our 10th anniversary with the people and companies who helped us grow from our humble beginnings to one of the largest independent retail electric suppliers in the United States today.”
Ten lucky customers were randomly selected to win $10,000 each. The customer winners represent a diverse group: a fire house in Pennsylvania, an Italian restaurant in New Jersey, a childhood learning center in Delaware, a chicken farmer in Maryland and a homeowner in Texas, among others. Sales channels responsible for enrolling these customers and the signing agents also received awards.
The majority of the winners were small businesses, which is not surprising since Liberty Power was founded with the vision of providing small commercial customers with the same level of customer service and energy cost-savings that were typically only provided to large energy-users. Today, the company serves all customer segments, including many Fortune 500 companies, government entities, and residential accounts across its national footprint.
“Few, if any, retail electric providers can claim they’ve remained in business and independent for 10 years. It’s been an amazing journey, watching the company grow in so many ways,” said Alberto Daire, co-founder, President and COO. “Liberty Power started selling in one utility territory in New York City, but today operates in more than fifty. Four original co-founders have grown to become nearly 300 team members, and the number of channel partners and customers we serve has grown tremendously. Moving forward, we are very excited about what we can accomplish over the next 10 years. Whatever the future holds, we will always remember our small business roots, and will always keep our entrepreneurial spirit.”
