Revive! recruits franchise director

Cathryn Hayes QFP, a highly respected and influential figure in the franchise industry, has joined Revive! UK as franchise director.

The board level post has been created especially for Cathryn, who was previously head of franchising for HSBC bank and more recently head of business support at the bfa.

The appointment comes as Revive! prepares for the next phase of the company’s development with recent focus on strengthening the head office team tasked with leading this strategic growth.

Commenting on the appointment Revive! managing director Mark Llewellyn said, ‘When I saw the opportunity to invite Cathryn to join us, it made sense to create a post for her that reflected her importance within in the industry. She has the perfect skills set to make a huge difference as our first franchise director.’

Cathryn said, ‘I’ve been watching the company’s journey with great interest and been impressed by the way they do business. Taking the step from being an industry advisor to working within a franchise is a big one, but it’s great to take on a new challenge and get stuck into a role where I can put my 20 years of industry experience to good use.’
