Ask Bill Brown what he loves about Express Employment Professionals, and his long list will include a company that offers excellent business support, a corporate culture of caring, and the valuable opportunity to make the leap from Express employee to owning a business.
Bill Brown is now the owner of the Volusia-Flagler County, FL, Express office, who is excited to jump into business ownership after 14 years as an employee in the Ocala, FL, office.
During his 14 years in the Ocala Express Employment Professionals office, Bill has not only acquired expertise in the staffing industry, but he also had three mentors who showed him what life could be like if he owned an Express franchise.
“Bill learned a lot from Express franchisees Randall and Pat Camp, who found professional and personal success through franchise ownership,” said Dan Gunderson, Express Regional Franchising Executive.
Bill was able to open his own office through the Express ‘Bridge To Ownership’ opportunity, which gives Express employees the opportunity to own their own business without taking on deep financial risk. Bill earned his Inside Sales and Outside Sales Express University certification, and before working for Express, he was an inside sales representative for Alltel Wireless.
Building Relationships While Building a Business
Bill is excited that this opportunity will allow him to achieve his financial goals for his family. He also looks forward to building a team and helping people in Volusia-Flagler County find work.
“Bill has placed hundreds of Express Associates at client companies throughout the years. He has excelled at all aspects of the business, and he understands the value of building long-term relationships with area businesses,” Dan said. “Locally, he has been deeply involved with the Ocala Business Leaders group. He is looking forward to building relationships with Daytona-area employers who need to find quality talent for their companies.”
A Focus on Family
“Another thing Bill really appreciates about the Express business model is the fact that he can be successful while working family-friendly hours,” Dan said. “Unlike some franchise opportunities, which require many late evening and weekend hours, owning an Express office allows Bill the opportunity to spend important time with his wife, Michelle, and their two children, Wyatt, 5, and Emma, 3, and to be involved in their place of worship, Meadowbrook Church.”
