Strategic Franchising Systems (SFS) is pleased to announce that the company has hired Peter McKnight as its new Chief Financial Officer. He will provide financial leadership and oversight to all five affiliated franchise brands – Caring Transitions, Fresh Coat Painters, Pet Wants, The Growth Coach, and TruBlue Total House Care – as well as Franchise Funding Group, an affiliated franchise development and investing company. McKnight will also be working with the franchise development and recruiting teams to deeper analyze investments, automation, and lead generation and with franchise owners to help improve profitability.
“We are looking forward to doing things in the smartest and most efficient ways possible to create additional value and success for all of our stakeholders, starting first with our franchise owners, and then our corporate employees, vendors/suppliers and our investors,” McKnight said.
McKnight earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration and management from Albion College and his MBA from the University of Dayton. His most leadership roles have all been in accounting and finance, most recently as the CFO for Jackmont Hospitality, a foodservice management company, and multi-unit franchise operator. McKnight was interested in joining the SFS team because of the opportunity to work across five varied brands, including some that are more established and others on the cusp of massive growth.
