Plus Fitness appoints National Franchise Support Manager

Plus Fitness appoints National Franchise Support Manager
July 30, 2013

Fast growing fitness club franchise Plus Fitness has appointed Roger Nakad to the newly created role of National Franchise Support Manager.

Having grown from six to 60 gyms in the last two years, and with a further 54 territories sold,

Plus Fitness franchisors Nigel Miller and John Fuller created the role to support their ongoing aggressive growth.

Nakad has an extensive background in both the fitness and franchising industries.

With a degree in Business and Marketing, Nakad has previously held senior roles within both Fitness First Australia and Genesis Health Clubs.

Announcing the appointment, Miller explains "the need was becoming more apparent to develop a role that would ensure that our team of franchise support managers were getting the right level of support and developmental guidance that would in turn flow on to their franchisees.

"With our high support franchise model, the need to attract someone with both business franchise and fitness industry experience was crucial and in recruiting Roger we have achieved this whilst also attracting someone that has the work ethic and attitude in fitting with our brand and existing leadership team."

Nakad's primary role with Plus Fitness will see him and his team of Franchise Support Managers continue to assist all Plus Fitness Franchisees with their business and professional growth.

Having opened their first Franchise in Queensland last week and with a further 12 Queensland territories sold, Plus Fitness is now located in five States.
