All Trades Network, which offers a complete building repair service to the insurance market, has announced the appointment of Charles Sindall as its Franchise Development Manager. "The focus for All Trades Network is twofold: strengthening the support mechanism to the network and developing the systems and strategy to take the business forward,"says Keith Roberts, Managing Director of All Trades Network. "Charles has over 23 years experience in franchising, bringing considerable expertise across the full range of business disciplines to the company.

'The UK insurance industry is the largest in Europe and third largest in the world. It pays out a staggering £74 million per working day in general insurance claims! Our aim is to be the largest privately owned approved contractor to the insurance industry providing a national but local service through a franchise network. We therefore see the appointment of Charles as key to our continued success.'

Says Charles: 'I am delighted to be joining All Trades Network at a period of phenomenal growth and opportunity. We already have 27 franchisees in the network with a further four already in the pipeline and that, after only two years! The joint directors and owners, Keith Roberts and Cliff Whitehead, have built a credible and profitable franchise model, with many new franchisees having already exceeded their first year targets in terms of growth and profitability.'
