Agency Express is pleased to announce that Ben Brookes, former Director of Franchising has been promoted to Managing Director and equity shareholder.
After working as the Director of Franchising for some time, Ben Brookes will now take the place of Agency Express founder Stephen Watson and become the Managing Director and equity shareholder. Watson will now take the position of Chairman and continue to be a board member of the British Franchise Association (BFA).
Brookes has remained loyal to the brand for over 13 years, working in both managerial and directorial positions. Like Watson, he has a background in the property industry, and can therefore contribute plenty of knowledge and expertise to the role.
Watson is delighted to have played a part in the expansion of the van-based franchise:
“It’s been a great pleasure to have had an active hand in the growth and development of our business, working to make Agency Express the dominant force in estate agency board services it is today.”
He also commented on how the UK’s largest provider of professional estate agency board services stands out from its competition:
“I have always felt a person-centred approach to management is the key to success within any business; I believe what sets us apart from our competitors is our focus on providing the best experience for our clients but also for our network of franchisees.”
Brookes concluded by praising Watson for mentoring him and sharing excitement for the future:
“It is with huge pride and gratitude to my mentor Stephen Watson that I step forward into this role and I look forward to helming the ship into 2020 and beyond.”
Agency Express is the only estate agency board company in the UK that can boast a network of over 114 franchisees. The nationally recognised brand is looking to grow even further and is recruiting entrepreneurs who are motivated to succeed. You don’t need to have any previous experience in the industry either!
