When a software delivery executive wants to leave corporate America for a family-friendly franchise opportunity, what does he do? He Googles it, of course. For Andrew Raines, his online search for “the happiest franchises” led directly to Express Employment Professionals.
Congratulations to Andrew and his wife, Karen, who are opening the new Spring Valley, CA, Express franchise.
A Background in Business
“Andrew appreciates what the company has to offer: A proven franchise model with a long history of success,” said Dan Gunderson, Express franchising director. “And his education and experience make him a great fit.”
Andrew has had a successful 20-year career in the software industry, most recently at SAP, and he has a business degree from Marshall University in Huntington, WV.
Karen has a master’s degree in public relations and has worked as director of development for a nonprofit agency.
Locally, she is known as the co-author of the book ‘Celebrating San Diego Air & Space Museum,’ which explores how the San Diego area has contributed to the history of aerospace.
A Desire To Give Back
“Andrew and Karen are both network driven people and enjoy giving back to the community, which also fits well with the Express culture of caring,” Dan said. “As members of the Porsche Club of America, they helped spearhead a toy drive for the local Children’s Hospital in San Diego.”
Andrew and Karen, who have been married for 26 years, are eager to help connect people in the Spring Valley area with the work they need and provide workforce support for area businesses.
