February 06, 2012 // Franchising.com // Dallas – Michael Landry has joined the ColorTyme organization as vice president of franchise sales. During the 2012 ColorTyme National Convention last week, CEO Cathy Skula announced an aggressive new growth plan and the company’s search to fill a brand new VP-level position, strategic to the plan’s execution.
“I am happy to say that the search is over. Mr. Landry has the perfect background and track record for this new position,” said Skula. ”He shares our vision for growth and has the necessary experience to make it happen. We are happy to welcome him to the ColorTyme family.”
Formerly the director of franchise development for CiCi’s Pizza and also having served Planet Beach Franchising in the same capacity, Landry brings over six years of franchise sales development to his new role at ColorTyme.
“With ColorTyme’s new lower franchise and royalty fees, combined with Rent-A-Center’s financial commitment to this growth plan, we have a winning formula for growth,” said Landry. “It’s an exciting proposition, and I am honored and challenged by my new position with ColorTyme.”
