Nominations open for Top 30 Franchise Executives

It’s time! Nominations are open now for the 2021 Top 30 Franchise Executives.

What a year it has been. And there’s no better time to celebrate great support for franchisees than now.

Once again Inside Franchise Business Executive is searching for the top performers among franchisors – whether CEOs, operations chiefs, marketing gurus, field managers, trainers, head office support staff, communications experts, franchise development managers, or other franchisee-impacting roles.

Franchisees have never been more in need of first class support, so this is the time to showcase what you, or a team member, has done to help franchisees survive this toughest of years.

The Top 30 Franchise Executives are chosen each year by a line-up of expert judges, drawn from the franchisor, franchisee and service provider community.

It’s the third year for this initiative, which saw Foodco’s Natalie Brennan take out the number one slot in 2019, and Steve Plarre crowned number one in the 2020 report.

The 2021 report is sponsored by BlueRock, and will be released early next year, highlighting all 30 high performing professionals who make the list.

An event, sponsored by Jepto and Op Central will reveal the Top 30.

Top 30 nominations

Anyone working within franchising can nominate a franchise executive but only executives working for a franchisor firm can submit entries – this is not open to franchisees or suppliers.

Once nominations close, eligible executives will be able to submit their online entries. These submissions will showcase high performance in six areas and each category adds to the entrant’s final score.

Submissions will include all six categories:

  • Franchisee support
  • Leadership
  • Franchise citizenship
  • Innovation
  • Promoting positive franchising
  • Professional development

Nominations close on Monday 26 October 2020 so don’t delay – nominate yourself and/or one or more colleagues here.
