Revive! appoints regional head

Kelly Blackmore-Lee has joined the Revive! head office team as head of franchise operations South.

The move sees Revive! re-structure its business development team to manage the demands of its growing nationwide franchisee network. Previously looking after the whole UK, Julie Eley will now focus on supporting and developing the businesses of franchisees in the north while Kelly’s time will be devoted to assisting those in the south.

Kelly said, ‘I’ve been watching Revive! go from strength-to-strength for the past 10 years, so when the opportunity presented itself to join the team it was an easy decision to make. I enjoyed my time at the bfa but wanted to get back into hands on franchising and am really looking forward to working with the franchisees in my area.  Helping franchisees grow their businesses is what it’s all about and I’ve got heaps of experience I can’t wait to share.’

Revive! operations director, Terry Mullen said, ‘I’m delighted to welcome Kelly to our head office team. She has a huge amount of experience gained in different franchising sectors and at the bfa and I am sure this knowledge will be very valuable to us here at Revive!’

Kelly was previously head of compliance at the British Franchise Association (bfa), and prior to that held senior roles at both the Dream Doors and Shakeaway franchises. She holds a Master’s degree in law.
