PARK CITY, Utah - Oct. 8, 2018 // PRNewswire // - Athletic Republic, the leading sports performance training franchise, has hired Tommy Auger as the company's Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Auger fits Athletic Republic's versatile game plan as a former college athlete, youth athletics coach and seasoned franchise executive. With this addition, Athletic Republic gains additional leadership experience and expertise to support its strategic goals while maximizing its short- and long-term growth strategy.
Auger served as the CFO, Chief Accounting Officer (CAO), and Sr. Vice President for AlphaGraphics, Inc. (AlphaGraphics) a Salt Lake City-based franchise of more than 280 U.S. and International independently owned and operated marketing service providers with full-service print shops.

Prior to his AlphaGraphics franchising role, Auger also worked for three of the "Big Four" accounting firms – Deloitte, Arthur Andersen, and KPMG and serviced certain franchising clients as well.
"I was drawn to Athletic Republic because of the company's tremendous overlap in the franchise and athletic space. As a former college basketball and soccer player as well as a youth athletics coach, I understand the importance of speed, agility and endurance. I am passionate about the franchise business model and believe my experience with AlphaGraphics during its sales and unit count growth offers a great parallel to Athletic Republic," said Auger.
