Pirtek has announced the appointment of Alistair Wiggins to the newly-created position of operations director. Alistair has been a board director at Pirtek since 2002 and has over 20 years experience in franchising both as a franchisee and franchisor.
His knowledge and experience covers all aspects of the franchising model from operations, systems and compliance through to recruitment and marketing. He is also a regular guest speaker on franchising at the University of Surrey Business School and at franchise seminars.
Commenting on his close work with the bfa for the last 2 years as regional chair and board member, Alistair says: “I have used this opportunity to listen and learn from my fellow franchisors. I believe my own franchising experience and that which I have gained in the last 2 years has given me the insight and knowledge to make a positive impact both within the bfa and with Pirtek.”
