Five Star Painting COO, Phillips, Obtains Franchise Executive Designation

Certified Franchise Executive Designees Honored at International Franchise Association Convention

WACO, Texas (PRWEB) February 25, 2015 - Matt Phillips, chief operations officer for Five Star Painting, one of the fastest growing residential and light commercial painting companies in North America , and a subsidiary of global franchise company, The Dwyer Group, has earned his Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) designation.

The three-year program is a comprehensive course of study in franchise management offered by the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives (ICFE), an academic branch of the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) Educational Foundation. "I have always felt that continuing education is critical to stay current and relevant in our industry, so I knew earning my CFE was a priority," stated Phillips.

After completing the program, the International Franchise Association (IFA) recognized Phillips’ continued dedication and commitment to the franchising industry by awarding him the designation of CFE at the annual convention in Las Vegas on February 17.

"The courses presented by the ICFE have helped give me a holistic understanding of the franchise industry and how to be a better leader within Five Star Painting," stated Phillips. "I encourage anyone with a goal of enhancing their career in franchising to participate in this program. Personal and professional development are necessary and valuable investments into any career."

More than 1,800 franchise executives are now enrolled or have received certification. More than 300 IFA-member companies currently have one or more executives enrolled in the program, which provides benefits such as specialized knowledge, industry recognition, peer-level networking and professional standing.

Candidates are required to complete a rigorous course of study to earn the CFE designation, which includes attending institute-sponsored educational seminars and workshops. The program enhances franchise professionals’ understanding of the industry’s fundamental and complex aspects.
