After spending some thirty years in senior franchise management positions, Swartz spent a decade as Worldwide Managing Director heading the franchise practice of Arthur Andersen, LLP, where he provided consulting services to dozens of Fortune 2000 businesses, as well as to hundreds of smaller franchisors.

By virtue of this relationship, Leonard Swartz will be available to work with the iFranchise Group as a Senior Consultant. Swartz will specialize in working with established franchisors and those seeking international expansion.

"I am proud to be associated with the iFranchise Group," said Swartz. "When Horwath Franchising was looking for an international partner in the U.S., we did our due diligence on every consultant in this market, and they came up head-and-shoulders above the rest."
