Swimming legend Sam Riley joins Top 30 Franchise Executive judging panel

Swimming legend, business owner and franchisee Sam Riley is joining the Top 30 Franchise Executives 2021 judging panel.

Riley notched up an impressive roll call of medals in the 1990s across the Olympics, Pan Pacific Championships, World Championships and Commonwealth Games.

The champion swimmer has been awarded with an Order of Australia and numerous sporting accolades.

Now she is showing her prowess as a business owner with six Sam Riley Swim Schools, and as a multi-unit Snap Fitness franchisee.

Riley joins a line-up of independent judges with strong franchise backgrounds to evaluate the Top 30 Franchise Executives 2021 entries.

The deadline for initial nominations is fast approaching.

Monday 26 October is the deadline for initial nominations to be submitted so we can start calling in submissions from eligible nominees.

Nominations are open to anyone working in a professional role within a franchisor firm (not franchisees or suppliers).

Nominees will be asked to show how they have supported and promoted franchisees and the wider franchising community throughout the past 12 months.

You can nominate yourself, a colleague or someone else in the franchising community.

It’s easy to do, just click here to nominate up to three individuals. You can submit more than one form if you want to nominate more people.

The Top 30 report is sponsored by BlueRock, and will be unveiled at a special event in March 2021, sponsored by Jepto and Op Central.

This year Ferguson Plarre CEO Steve Plarre was named the number one franchising executive in Australia. To view the Top 30 Franchise Executives ranking for 2020, click here to download the report for free.
