In his message to Members, the incoming Chairman, who was Vice Chairman for the previous two years said, “Our Board this year draws on a wealth of knowledge in the franchise and commercial sectors and in my view brings a fantastic balance of knowledge and experience to the table. It is comprised of four franchisors, a very experienced franchise consultant, an equally experienced Barrister and Solicitor and our newest member a banker with wide experience right across the finance sector.

It will be important this Board remains cognisant of the markets we all operate in and makes fiscally sensible decisions about how we support our members. I believe the broad range of skills we bring to the table will place us in good stead in this respect”.
