Auditel has announced the latest franchisees to join its cost, purchase and supplier management network.
Sarah Winyard, based in Banstead, Surrey, is a former senior commercial manager for HSBC. She said: “I wanted to run my own business and was given a real chance after a long, long time in banking – 27 years – to take a step back and think about what I wanted to do.
“Auditel seemed to offer a proposition that was a good fit with my existing skills, my contacts and my networking ability – so that was a start. I went away and did some due diligence. I realised that they offered a fantastic support package which would help me to grow the business and make it sustainable. That’s why I chose Auditel!”
Commenting on her initial training, Sarah added: “The course has given me confidence in the sales process. The team were excellent and kept our motivation going.”
Before Nottingham-based Ben Scott-Nelson joined Auditel, he was a senior IT solutions account manager with previous experience in estate agency. Ben commented: “I looked into a number of franchise opportunities. I selected Auditel because of the strong brand, the right business model and the detailed training package. I had confidence in the high level of backing on offer; the bfa have recognised Auditel for their support over the years and that was important to me.”
Auditel now has over 200 franchisees in the UK and was recognised earlier this year for the backing given to them when it was named winner of the Franchisee Support award at the 2012 bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year awards.
