Noted Consultant Leonard Swartz, Director of International Operations
of Horwath Franchise Services Ltd, is now available to work with
iFranchise Group's clients on request.
Over the course of a forty-three year career in franchising, Mr.
Swartz has been the president of six different firms and a senior
executive at four more, including prominent franchisors Dunkin'
Donuts, Partime (a division of Snelling & Snelling), ADECCO
(Adia Services), Dunhill Personnel, Postal Instant Press (PIP Printing),
and a division of ITT. 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.
"This is a tremendous addition to our team," said Mark
Siebert, CEO of the iFranchise Group. "Leonard's hands-on experience
is unmatched in franchising."
The iFranchise Group recently became a member of Horwath Franchise
Services Limited (a joint venture between Horwath International
and Eversheds) for the purpose of providing franchisors with comprehensive
solutions to their franchising needs. 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."
