Sandler Training is pleased to announce that Dave Mattson, CEO and President of the Sandler organization, has been named one of the Top Franchise Leaders of 2017 by Franchise Business Review. Mattson was chosen as a result of franchisees' positive feedback regarding their brand's leadership during a recent satisfaction survey of approximately 30,000 franchisees representing 334 brands.
According to Franchise Business Review, top leaders are taking their brands to new levels of success by "meeting the demands of traditional corporate leadership while leading groups of independent business owners…and increasing the value of their brand."
As a top business leader who is raising the performance bar, they wrote, "Dave Mattson encourages collaboration to maximize creativity and productivity, resulting in a driven and highly productive team that is passionate about furthering Sandler's mission." When asked how Sandler ensures business growth for new franchisees, Mattson said, "Our culture is the first thing people see when they come and visit us, because our franchisees don't look at each other as competitors. They want to make sure that each and every one of us are strong as possible..."
