SpeedPro Imaging Announces Franchise Development Team Executive Promotions
Jarrett serving as VP, Sarah Brown and Nicole Yates promoted
January 07, 2019 // Franchising.com // DENVER, Colo. - SpeedPro Imaging, the national industry leader in large-format printing, has tapped Pat Jarrett as the company’s next Vice President of Franchise Development, along with two other high-level promotions among the team.
Jarrett is an experienced leader, specializing in franchise management and advising. He began his SpeedPro Imaging career in 2010 as a franchisee in Omaha, where he grew his business to $1 million in revenue within six years, making his studio one of the fastest-growing franchises in the system. “I was able to grow my business by targeting vertical markets along with an aggressive sales and marketing plan,” said Jarrett. “I accomplished this by being part of a series of network groups, learning from my peers in the SpeedPro Imaging Franchise Advisory Council.”
Jarett sold his studio in 2016 and rejoined SpeedPro Imaging as Development Director in 2018. In his new role as Vice President, Jarrett will oversee all of the company’s franchise development processes, including working with franchise candidates through the discovery process and creating individualized growth strategies.
“I’m excited to take on the challenges that come with this new role, and enabling franchisees’ success across the country has become my success too,” said Jarrett. “My role allows me to help people achieve their dreams of being small business owners, just like I was years ago.”
SpeedPro Imaging has also promoted two additional members of the executive franchise development team, Sarah Brown and Nicole Yates. Brown now serves as the Senior Franchise Development Coordinator and brings 10 years of franchise experience in the quick-service and large-format printing industries. She oversees the coordination processes of SpeedPro Imaging’s franchise development segment and supervises marketing awareness and analysis, including the company’s monthly Discovery Day events.
In addition to her current role as Franchise Development Specialist, Nicole Yates is adding the title of Resale Coordinator. Yates has more than 15 years of business development experience and has been with the company since February of 2018. In her new role, Yates will help candidates looking to purchase existing studios through the company’s discovery process.
“We are thrilled to see the advancement of our executive franchise development team across the board,” said SpeedPro Imaging CEO Larry Oberly. “Pat, Nicole and Sarah are great assets to the SpeedPro Imaging franchise. Their extensive knowledge in this industry is vital to our continued success.”
