IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 8, 2012) - Compatible Home Care, a leading provider of in-home care services to senior and infirm clients and their families, today announced the addition of John Alderson to the Compatible Home Care executive team.
Mr. Alderson, a former Starbucks senior vice president with a strong track record of successfully growing franchise systems, will assume the role of COO, effectively immediately. As COO, Alderson will lend his considerable experience to managing the fast-paced growth of the company. Alderson takes the reins just as the company pursues aggressive nationwide expansion.
"We are ecstatic to have John join our leadership team in such a pivotal role, at such an important time in our company's growth," said company President Kimberly Gerber. "In addition to having a robust and successful track record of corporate and franchise system management, John is also aligned with our philosophy, vision and goals for the company."
Alderson formerly served as the President of the Chart House Restaurant system and the President of the Steak and Ale Restaurant system. As former Senior Vice President of Starbucks Coffee's Western Division, Alderson had overall responsibility for taking the chain from 250 to nearly 1,000 stores, making the Western Division the most profitable business unit worldwide. He was recruited in 2001 and served as the Chief Operating Officer of It's A Grind, a leading national specialty coffeehouse franchise concept, and most recently held the CEO role for Pump It Up, a national special events franchise focused on the youth market.
"In addition to my corporate experience in supporting growing franchise systems, I also have the perspective of being a franchise owner myself. My entire career has been spent cultivating teams to lead the successful growth of multi-unit organizations and my ability to recognize the unique needs of each franchisee," Alderson said. "I believe deeply in the Compatible Home Care concept, and appreciate the confidence the leadership team has in me to play a role in taking the franchise system to the next level in the senior home care industry."
