etyres prides itself on the high calibre of staff who ensure the smooth and efficient running of its Head Office.
Senior Director Eamonn Byrne, FCMA ACIS QFP, a qualified chartered accountant with a career that spans finance and sales, has worked for a number of high tech international brands. He has also recently been awarded British Franchise Association (bfa) Qualified Franchise Professional status.
The advantages of achieving QFP status include, increased knowledge of the franchising industry, improved business effectiveness and demonstrable competitive edge. All of these attributes underpin the vital importance of best practice and ethics within UK franchising and help etyres Franchise Owners realise the full potential of their new business.
In his role as Senior Director, Byrne successfully leads and manages commercial teams to consistently meet targets and deliver results. He also uses his experience and skills to meet the new challenges, such as IT initiatives, which are helping to drive etyres forward.
He first became involved as a consultant with etyres in 1995 when it was known as Fleet Mobile Tyres and was targeting the business fleet market. He developed the accounting systems and sourced appropriate packages and developed systems for use by Franchise Owners. In addition he was involved in the development of new Franchise Owner training, some of which is still active today.
When online retailing emerged towards the end of the nineties, Byrne was involved in the transition of the business from a B2B proposition to a B2C proposition.
In a recent interview with FranchiseExpo.co.uk, Byrne explained why the etyres franchise offers an exciting opportunity for potential Franchise Owners.
“etyres offers prospective Franchise Owners the opportunity to run their own business within an established and proven business model,” he explained. “With the etyres model a Franchise Owner benefits from our 7 day a week sales office and ecommerce website generating actual sales, i.e. not leads.”
He added that the key to success for Franchise Owners is finding the right franchise opportunity to match their skills and goals.
