BCR Associate's two new franchise owners have joined the company just three months after they attended its Discovery Day in London.

The two latest BCR Associates franchise owners are Julian Strutt, from Berkshire who joins BCR Associates following a 34-year career in freight forwarding and logistics, and Michael Geduld, from Hertfordshire who has a background in indemnity insurance and financial services. Both franchise owners have previous experience of running their own businesses but were looking for a new opportunity where they could apply their entrepreneurial flair and establish a cost reduction consultancy business that would also provide a work-life balance.

Strutt said: “While I was instantly impressed by the genuine six figure earning potential represented by the franchise, of more importance to me was the fact that I was buying into a recession proof market sector with the potential to develop a business which could deliver residual income streams as well as monthly commissions. And a further key consideration was the desire to identify a business which would enable me to adopt a more flexible working regime.”

Geduld added: “With a background in financial services, I had a natural affinity with the cost reduction market but the BCR Associates business model demonstrated a win-win proposition to clients with its access to exclusive rates and tariffs, free of charge, no obligation reviews and the fact that 100 per cent of all savings are passed on to the client. Armed with this information, no client prospect can fail to be impressed by such a quick and easy route to improve profitability.”

According to BCR Associates on average its customers can expect to reduce their running costs by 27 per cent and the company has saved its clients millions of pounds as a result of identifying new reputable suppliers and accessing preferential tariff arrangements across a portfolio of sectors including: electricity, gas, telecoms, insurance, staff, water, finance, vehicle, rateable values and green services.

Commenting on the appointments, Phil Gaffer, Franchise Recruitment Manager at BCR Associates, said: “We have been delighted with the positive and enthusiastic response to the BCR Associates franchise since its launch. Given the time invested in fine-tuning the business model and charting the progress of the company’s foundation franchise owners, we are confident in the franchise’s ability to genuinely deliver a highly profitable and fulfilling business opportunity operating in a booming market sector. Our 120 day training package is designed to ensure that new recruits to the network are able to hit the ground running and we have also increased the resource at head office to provide further access to a dedicated and proficient support team which is always on hand to provide guidance and bespoke mentoring to all BCR Associates franchise owners.”
