Premier Pools & Spas, the world’s number one swimming pool builder, has announced it is adding a location in Tucson, Arizona. Paul Porter, CEO of Premier Franchise Management (the franchisor of Premier Pools & Spas), carefully selected Stephen Maskey to be the franchisee of the newest Arizona site.

Maskey is a University of Arizona alumni where he majored in Engineering Management with a focus in Chemical Engineering. In 2002 his love of science led him to a job maintaining pool chemistry and from there his career expanded into pool sales and design. Maskey also ran a commercial steel business for several years before deciding to join the Premier Pools & Spas franchise. He and his wife, Mariah, have six children who also have a passion for splashin’. “My kids love to help design pools,” said Maskey recalling how his kids enjoy drawing their own pool designs alongside their dad.

To date, Premier Pools & Spas has built more than 50,000 pools and continues to grow. The company now has over 40 locations in three countries. “At Premier Pools & Spas we are always looking for people in their representative marketplace who have a clarity of the experience they want to provide for their customers.” Porter said, “Stephen comes to us with a degree in engineering which made it very clear that he is the type of individual that is going to pay attention to the details. He also has six children which gave me great confidence that family first is his main objective and that parallels Premier Pools & Spas values and culture.”

The selection process for new franchisees consists of a comprehensive background check and several inquiries to local vendors and distributors, as well as previous customer and personal references.
