Steamatic franchise development director receives CFE recognition
FORT WORTH, TX — Steamatic Inc. recently announced Franchise Development Director Bill Helton had earned the company its second Certified Franchise Executive designation from the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives, according to a press release.
The Institute certifies franchise executives who complete a comprehensive course of study in franchise management including institute-sponsored educational seminars and workshops. All of these are meant to enhance attendees’ understanding of industry fundamentals and more complex aspects of franchising.
“I am grateful to be part of an organization that values continuing education for their team members,” Helton said in the release. “Steamatic always strives to meet the needs of both current and prospective owners and the best way to do that is through continuous improvement. As I speak with prospective owners across the country, this certification assures them that Steamatic places significant importance on abiding by all laws, guidelines and procedures of the International Franchise Association.”
Helton, who joined Steamatic in January 2015 after extensive experience in franchise development, was honored, along with others receiving the CFE designation. The ceremony took place in San Antonio, Texas, at the annual convention of International Franchise Association (parent organization to the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives) February 23.
“Bill’s accomplishment marks Steamatic’s second CFE, with several more to come in the future,” Steamatic President Steve Willis added. “The focus placed by the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives on this program aligns perfectly with Steamatic’s focus on future growth, cutting edge technology and superior franchise support.”
Willis received Steamatic’s first Certified Franchise Executive designation last year.
