When Sree Alangad arrived in the United States from India in 1997, he set his sights on a strong education, a successful business career, and eventually owning a business. Today, he is celebrating success as the owner of the new Express Employment Professionals office in north Edison, New Jersey.
Equipped for Success
Sree holds a master’s of science degree in finance from the Rochester Institute of Technology and has had a successful 15-year career in insurance, serving as Vice President of Sales for Vanderbilt Properties Insurance Brokerage.
“Sree is the perfect fit for an Express franchisee,” said Brook Wise, Express Franchising Director. “He is a successful sales veteran, he is very professional, and he is familiar with the demographics of the north Edison area.”
Following His Passion
“My passion is to help businesses in the north Edison community increase their productivity and profitability through Express staffing services,” Sree said. “I also feel strongly about serving the people in our community who need employment. Express offers the perfect model for achieving both goals.”
Sree met his wife, Aakefa, here in the U.S., although she also grew up in India. They have two daughters, and appreciate the fact that Express supports a healthy work-life balance for franchise owners, so they can spend quality time with family.
Aakefa’s passion is for helping the elderly, and she owns a franchise business in the senior care industry. Through that experience, Sree saw the value a franchise can offer to someone who wants to run a business.
“Express offers strong home office support, with all the practices and processes in place for a proven strategy for success,” Brook said. “Then, it is up to the franchisee to build community and business relationships and to provide local market expertise to create the best fit for the region’s business needs. Sree has the right skills to make this office a strong success.”
