"Greg's experience serving in multiple roles in the franchise industry over the past four decades will help us enhance various initiatives, including helping people move from employment to empowerment through franchising," Terry Powell, founder of FSBI, said. "We just hit our 30th anniversary and are stronger than ever, implementing several new marketing strategies and initiatives to help not only our brands grow, but also our franchisor partners. Greg's advice and guidance will help us continue to move in the right direction."

He is known for his great depth of wisdom and on-point advice in franchising, some of which he has compiled in his book called TANNERISMS™. Tanner, who in 2012 was named a Top 20 person to watch by Franchise Times magazine, retired from Aaron's on July 1, 2014, where he awarded more than 900 franchises.
"When I announced my retirement from Aaron's, I vowed that I was not retiring from franchising," Tanner said. "Through the Tanner Franchise Group and now with Franchise Source, I can truly help franchisors grow their businesses. This role with Franchise Source Brands allows me do so within the FSBI network, as well as within the hundreds of franchisor partners who come to them for help building their franchise systems and implementing the right strategies to maintain happy, successful franchisees."
