Top 30 flashback: Hire A Hubby CEO on change

Just a year ago Hire A Hubby CEO Brendan Green reached a top five position in the Top 30 Franchise Executives very first ranking. And now high achievers in the franchise community will be celebrating when the Top 30 Franchise Executives for 2020 report is unveiled next week.

Last year Green revealed some of the actions that had put him into a top slot in the list. He shared some leadership tips in a podcast with Inside Franchise Business and discussed how the handyman network was helping to deliver a better worklife balance for its franchisees.

Listen again and find out the steps he took to achieve this.

Top 30 Franchise Executives 2020

This year’s cream of the crop will be announced on 25 February in Melbourne.

Franchise executives, who could be in top leadership c-suite roles, heading up innovation, or providing vital on-the-ground support for franchisees, have pitted themselves against tough competition to gain a listing in the 2020 report.

The list is independently judged, with a top quality line-up of judges from across the franchising sector:

  • Franchisors Nikki Lawson of KFC (soon to be heading up Taco Bell’s global branding); the founder of Quest Apartment Hotels, Paul Constantinou; and ex-Guzman y Gomez  and McDonald’s executive Mark Hawthorn.
  • Award-winning franchisees Crystal Petzer, of Hire A Hubby and The Alternative Board, and Sherwin Djamil, a multi-unit franchisee with Soul Origin.
  • Well-known industry figures Jewli Turier, CEO of Franchise Relationships Institute and long-term franchise lawyer Bruce McFarlane of BlueRock Law.
  • Inside Franchise Business editor Sarah Stowe

And to celebrate the publication of the report (sponsored by BlueRock) we’re throwing a party. The event at Ms Collins, is on 25 February from 7-10pm.

It will be a great night for industry professionals, an opportunity to meet the finalists and judges, and other franchisors and suppliers.

The 2019 winner, Natalie Brennan of Muffin Break, said at last year’s event “It’s great to get so many people in franchising together, we’re all old friends and we just don’t see each other enough, particularly in a social setting.”
