President of TruBlue Total House Care, Sean Fitzgerald, was interviewed in Authority Magazine’s series called “5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Became a C-Suite Executive.” This interview tells the story of Fitzgerald from starting his first company, Pickups Plus, to becoming an executive at Strategic Franchising. He shares the advice to succeed in an executive position, as well as advice to those just starting their careers and who want to excel into a leadership position.
“I think one of the biggest myths is that business leaders are not compassionate and just overly driven or greedy. That the bottom line drives every decision they make. Most executives, Presidents/CEOs that I’ve worked with, including myself, are just super focused and passionate about what we do. We are driven to get results. We want to build something great, like TruBlue Total House Care, that provides real value to the world. We want to make a real difference.” – Sean Fitzgerald, President of TruBlue Total House Care
Sean Fitzgerald joined the Strategic Franchising family in early 2020, coming from a background of over 25 years in franchising. Despite being struck by a global pandemic early in his leadership, TruBlue doubled its revenue in Fitzgerald’s first year as president.
