Revive! looking to increase its number of franchise owners

Revive! has appointed a new Business Development Officer to support and develop the company's increasing number of franchise owners. Darren Hawkins (pictured), who has extensive experience in both the automotive and franchise sectors, has been appointed to the role of Business Development Officer and is responsible for supporting the network of franchise owners by helping them expand their operations in terms of both vehicles and turnover through strategic business planning.

Hawkins said: "Revive! is a good fit for me. The company is dynamic and progressive and it's refreshing to join a company that is happy to give me a free reign to develop the business. I have built up a good deal of experience in multi-van franchises and have an understanding of individual business needs. I look forward to working closely with all of the technicians to help them take their businesses onto the next stage."

Darren's predecessor Denzil Evans will be one of the franchise owners supported by the new manager. After six years in his head office role he could see the benefits of the Revive! business model and decided to invest in his own Revive! territory in Northampton.

Revive! Managing Director Mark Llewellyn said: "We are delighted that a candidate of Darren's calibre has decided to join the Revive! team at such an exciting phase of both our own company and the SMART industry as a whole. We are leading the way in helping to drive up standards within SMART cosmetic repair and Darren's extensive experience will be of great benefit to the network."
