Are you in need of the input of an experienced franchise non executive director then you’ve come to the right place! I’ve ended up with a vast amount of experience to draw upon in practically every sector of UK franchising at every investment level. My background includes ownership of several franchise brands, all of which were successfully sold on. I’m currently a retained advisor to several franchising entrepreneurs.
I’m a UK specialist by choice, but with experience in many other countries as far away as Australia. My personal network of overseas franchising specialists can assist you practically anywhere in the world. Usually my franchise consultancy firm, Lime Licensing Group assists me, as does my ownership of one of the UK’s largest online franchise directories FranchiseLife.co.uk. As a result this breadth of knowledge gives me fresh thinking to todays franchised organisations.
Working as a franchise non executive director has given me a deep understanding of the dynamics of successful franchise businesses. What works, what doesn’t, what might! I can usually gauge the outcome long before less experienced franchisors have understood the issue.
“Judgement that comes through decades of experience”
A gut feeling based on over 26 years actively participating in profitable franchised businesses. All without joining the bandwagon of trade associations and the herd’s viewpoint. Andy is a safe pair of hands and a valuable asset to any franchisor no matter what you are currently experiencing or are aware of likely to happen in the future.
My approach is informal, enthusiastic and helpful. Nearly all my personal clients have come through recommendations as a result of previous successes.
I don’t think there’s very much I haven’t experienced in the franchise industry. I’ve been a franchisor myself for around 15 years cumulatively with 4 different franchise brands I’ve either owned or co-owned. I’ve also been a franchise consultant, a recruiter, an interim CEO and also an expert witness in court! The lessons I’ve learned, the mistakes I’ve made, and the successes I’ve had have all given me a toolkit that money can’t buy. Assuming you have a bonfide franchise offering that works for you and your franchise partners then I’ll be happy to help you maximise your franchise operations.
Outside of work I make regular but feeble efforts to stay in shape on a mountain bike and I am a keen dinghy racer and sailing instructor at a local sailing club. So, in addition to franchising I can also teach you and your family to sail 🙂
