‘With Auditel, I have chosen the right franchise!’

Interview with Auditel franchisee Mark Perry 

Sunbury-on-Thames-based Mark Perry joined the Auditel Cost Management Franchise in November. Prior to this, he had worked for over 20 years as a National Account Manager and Business Development Specialist for both Bunzl plc and Mars UK. 

Mark explains: “At Bunzl, I was responsible for devising strategic business plans and managing a number of key National Accounts including Asda, Compass and United Biscuits. With Mars, I brought in new business from British Airways, DHL and UPS, which represented combined annual revenues of over £5 million. I also established long-term relationships with key clients, British American Tobacco, BAA and the Volkswagen Group, which resulted in significant new income gains.

Why did you choose the Auditel Franchise?

“Having worked with the vagaries of the corporate world for 25+ years, I’ve always had a strong urge to take control of my own destiny but I’ve never been comfortable with the idea of working completely alone. Auditel has given me the opportunity to work for myself but with the support of a wide network of other Affiliates, supplier partners and Head Office.”

How did you find the training?

“I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very challenging – this was expected! It was very structured, informative and well presented. It instilled confidence that Auditel is a very professional organisation and that I have chosen the right franchise! This is a huge opportunity and I know that I have the right tools, when sitting in front of potential clients.”

Mark enthuses: “I joined Auditel to use my experience of undertaking vendor selection and supplier contract negotiations on behalf of my clients. I am a professional account manager. Now I can combine my skills with others across the Auditel network. I shall go all the way to identify and deliver sustainable cost savings for my clients.

“By appointing Auditel to manage business expenditure, our clients add an outsourced specialist to their management team, but without incurring any of the usual costs associated with in-house resources. I am really looking forward to working on my first projects!”

Matt Sidwell, Auditel’s Network Development Director, UK and Ireland, adds: “We usually experience a host of enquiries at the beginning of a new year from management professionals considering a change in their career. Our offering of ‘being in business for yourself but not by yourself’ has proven to be a profitable and enjoyable profession for our network of over 200 like-minded colleagues.

Our free Discovery Seminars give the opportunity to meet our Support Team, ask questions and find out for yourself if Auditel is the right business for you. We look forward to our meeting!
