Formula 1 engineer becomes Auditel franchise owner

Auditel's latest franchise owner joins the company after a successful career in Formula 1. Peter Harrison previously worked for the Williams team, where he was responsible for all technical aspects of F1 test and development operations. Peter decided to leave his job after recent upheavals in Formula 1 and wanting to spend more time with his family.

Peter said: "I really wanted the flexibility of being my own boss but I had no previous experience of running a business. So franchising was the obvious choice in my case. I can concentrate on building my own business using a proven format with ongoing help and support from the franchisor. There are so many to choose from, I thought it was going to take forever, but Auditel quickly stood out from the crowd. I took an instant liking to their business proposition and I was really impressed with the attitude of the head office staff and other franchise owners. It's been extremely tough coming from a highly paid profession in which I had many years of experience. But I'm clear about my future goals and I know this will be a better way of achieving them."
