Cynthia Gartman Joins TEAM Rennick as Managing Director
TEAM Rennick, franchise mentors, advocates and consultants, has announced that Cynthia Gartman has joined the company as Managing Director. According to Dick Rennick, CEO and founder, the position was created in response to demand for the company’s consultant services to the franchise community and industry suppliers.
“I am very pleased that Cynthia has joined our team,” Rennick said. “I feel this is a huge coup for TEAM Rennick, as Cynthia is very well-respected in the franchise industry and has a vast network of contacts, backed by an impressive track record of success in developing great brands, teams, and people.”
As Managing Director, Gartman will lead the development of providing comprehensive services and support to new systems beyond the initial set-up phase. TEAM Rennick will establish a networking and mentoring program that will provide advice, counsel, and guidance for the first 9 to 12 months after the launch.
“We are an advocate for the franchisor as they launch their concepts, and will walk with them through the initial stages,” Gartman said. “To me, success is not signing the initial franchise agreement, but when the franchisee signs the renewal contract. That proves the strength of the business model, franchisee support systems, and franchisor processes and procedures, and our franchise launch process aims at getting franchisors to this point.” (kbp)
