Greg Tanner, Aaron’s National Director – Franchising, is a franchise industry veteran who shares his invaluable wisdom in his book Tannerisms. Greg began his franchise career in publishing and has been successful in a variety of industries including automotive repair, car and truck rental, and fast food.

He was the only franchisor invited to the White House on November 21, 2011 to witness President Obama sign the American Jobs Act. On March 28 he appeared on “The Today Show” aboard the USS Intrepid in conjunction with the network’s Hiring Our Heroes initiative and met with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Dr. Jill Biden of the White House Joining Forces effort, and Medal of Honor recipient and Marine veteran Dakota Meyer. On November 14, he represented Aaron’s in Washington as a finalist at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s second Annual Hiring Our Heroes Awards gala.
