Belvoir's Mike Goddard appointed to chairman of the bfa

The Belvoir franchise announced last month that Mike Goddard, CEO and founder of the company, has been appointed chairman of the British Franchise Association (bfa). According to the information provided by the company, the bfa Board voted unanimously to elect Goddard who had already served as chairman of the Accreditation Committee for 12 months.

Mike commented on franchising as a business concept saying, "I have two key visions for the bfa. Firstly, I hope to steer it into a position where we are representing everybody involved in the franchising industry, including franchisors, franchise owners, and professionals such as solicitors, accountants and consultants, so that the bfa provides a voice for all franchising within the UK.

"Secondly, I think that franchising as a brand needs to be better recognised by the general public. There is a lot of work to be done within the bfa to help educate the public about the benefits of dealing with a franchise owner and I hope that this will come through a new initiative called Proud to Franchise, which will help to bring people into the franchising industry."

Belvoir is a lettings and property management agency franchise that was founded in 1995 by Mike and Stephanie Goddard. The nationwide network now consists of 125 franchise outlets and, the company says, it is looking to increase this number to 150 by the end of 2008. Its long-term target is to establish a national network of 300 franchised territories over the next ten years.
