Chrislynn Snyder Finds Success in a Male-Dominated Industry
BRYAN, TEXAS (March 12, 2013) – One hundred years ago, more than 5,000 women marched on Washington, D.C. to bring attention to the gross misrepresentation of women in our society. Today, women are heralded as the leaders of tomorrow in education, business and politics. Mr. Electric celebrates March and Women’s History Month by recognizing Chrislynn Snyder owner of Mr. Electric of Bryan/ College Station.
Snyder has been the proud owner of Mr. Electric for nearly eight years, achieving both personal and professional goals.
“When we bought the franchise, we utilized the procedures and processes recommended by The Dwyer Group,” Snyder said. “Over time, however, we found ourselves slipping away from those tried and true procedures and processes, thinking we could somehow do better. The bottom line, I finally realized, is the system and the Code of Values work.”
Snyder, a Marine Corps veteran and Texas A&M alumna, is the 2011 Mr. Electric Franchisee of the Year.
“Chrislynn is a bit of a star,” Mr. Electric President Jeff Meyers said. “No matter the situation, she has risen to the challenge. We are proud to have her on our team.”
Women, like Snyder, who have embraced the opportunities afforded them and overcome the obstacles, are paving the path for future generations of women to proudly walk.
“Any business is going to have a set of built-in standards and challenges, there will be some good days and some not so good. The key is making up your mind to just get the job done, seek good advice from those with more experience, and then follow through no matter what.”
