Award-winning virtual agency Get Ahead VA is delighted to welcome another new franchisee to their rapidly-growing franchise network. Based in Ealing, Louise Young will be running the West London region.
Louise joins Get Ahead VA with over 25 years’ experience in marketing communications. After being made redundant from her most recent role during COVID-19, Louise discovered Get Ahead VA on LinkedIn. She immediately saw the benefits of virtual assistant services for businesses facing the challenges of coronavirus and felt that the time was right to launch her own virtual agency franchise.
Lousie said: “I have seen so many businesses struggle over the past six months, as well as being personally affected through redundancy. So the opportunity to run my own business in the virtual agency space and help companies navigate these difficult times seemed like the perfect fit. As Get Ahead VA celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, I could see it was a very credible business in the growing outsourcing sector. Having previously run a franchise and worked for a franchisor, I knew how successful the franchise model can be. I am looking forward to being my own boss, with the support of the Get Ahead VA team around me.”
Get Ahead VA has seen a substantial rise in franchising enquiries this year, as many people have taken the opportunity of lockdown to re-evaluate their careers. Rebecca Newenham, founder and director of Get Ahead VA said: “I am delighted to welcome Louise to our team. She brings with her so many years of experience in marketing, communications and franchising. With franchisees now in Berkshire & North Hants, East Midlands, Leeds, South Yorkshire, Suffolk & Essex, West Surrey and Wirral & Cheshire West, as well as West London, we are expanding across the country. I look forward to seeing our team continue to develop over the next few months.”
Get Ahead VA offers nationwide marketing and business support services enabling businesses of all sizes and from all sectors to get ahead. From bookkeeping to blogging, database management to design and telephone answering to Twitter, their team of highly skilled virtual assistants delivers support on an hourly, project or ongoing basis.
