TORONTO — The Canadian Franchise Association’s (CFA) Board of Directors has named Sherry McNeil president & CEO of the association, effective November 26.
A long-standing member of the CFA Board of Directors, McNeil has more than 20 years of franchise experience working with franchisors and franchisees. Through her career, she has helped a wide range of systems in a variety of categories to grow and thrive in franchise development, sales, real estate, project management, concept evolution, and rebranding as both a consultant and in leadership positions.
“Sherry brings to the CFA a unique understanding of a franchise system’s inner workings to recharge an organization and forge a new path towards success,” says John DeHart, chair of the CFA Board of Directors and co-founder, Nurse Next Door Healthcare Services & Live Well Exercise Clinic. “We believe the CFA is at a confluence of change and having someone at the helm who can both navigate and initiate change, while combining the best of the past with the opportunity of the future, was the right choice in selecting our new leader.”
