We are thrilled to be expanding the Premier brand into two additional market places! We are even more excited about the quality of people that continuously want to join our organization. - Aaron Gurley, President of PFM

The world’s number one swimming pool builder, PPAS, recently expanded into the Cleveland, Ohio and Wichita, Kansas metropolitan area. Aaron Gurley, President of Premier Franchise Management, carefully chose Stephanie Shaw & Scott M. Laing to be the owners of the newest East Coast office, as well as Tom Binyon to be the owner of the newest Midwest office.

Cleveland, OH | Owners: Stephanie Shaw & Scott M. Laing
Stephanie spent 8 years as owner of an entertainment company producing upscale themed events for elite country clubs and large entertainment venues, specializing in custom scenic design pieces to create an immersive experience. She wishes to take her unique scenic design experience to create the ultimate dream backyard oasis around Northeast Ohio so families can create memories that will last a lifetime.

Scott has both Retail and Restaurant management experience. He has a customer centered work ethic and has an enthusiasm that is contagious. He welcomes and appreciates being invited into his clients home to give them a fun experience and create a once in a lifetime project.

This is one of the main reasons that Stephanie and Scott wanted to own a Premier Franchise. “A pool in someone’s home is, in many cases, a once in a lifetime experience. PPAS builds the highest quality pools in the industry, and we want to create what amounts to permanent functional works of art.” Said Scott.
