The People of Franchise Top 10

James O'Brien QFP - Managing Director

James has been in franchising since the early 1990's when his first role saw him oversee the transition of an un-branded network of training centres into the Pitman Training franchise system.  Over the next ten years James built a network of 100 training centres across the UK & Ireland.  


James went on to work with a new training concept in Germany and also worked in the hotel franchise industry before an eight year stint at interim management and executive recruitment franchise Executives Online. James helped build a network of over 40 executive recruitment franchises across 10 countries before leaving to set up the UK arm of Franchise Top 10 in 2015.


James has set up Franchise Top 10 as he enjoys sharing his experiences with other franchisors on the best route to build a franchise network.
