The Entrepreneur’s Source (TES) Hires Gregory Cook as Member Relationship Strategist. Insightful Industry Veteran Excited to Join TES’ Performance Enhancement Center Team
The Entrepreneur’s Source® (TES), North America’s leading career transition coaching franchise, announced today the appointment of Gregory Cook as Member Relationship Strategist. Cook will serve as a brand ambassador for TES to help the company achieve positive results for all TES clients and franchisor members.
“After building a phenomenal reputation over the last decade with the International Franchise Association, Gregory Cook is a true leader in the franchise community,” said Terry Powell, TES’ Visionary Founder. “Cook will be a key catalyst for us as we look to the future and prepare to build on 35 years of success. Cook’s client-first mentality and proven skills in helping franchisors build their brands make him a perfect fit to help us continue our mission of empowering entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams of self-sufficiency through business ownership.”
Cook, 41, joins TES from the International Franchise Association (IFA), franchising’s leading trade group, where he spent 10 years helping IFA members maximize their membership. He helped all members – franchisors, franchisees and suppliers – navigate the industry, develop meaningful relationships, and implement effective new business strategies. Prior to IFA, Cook served as sales manager for Liquidity Services, a Washington, D.C.-based logistics and supply chain company. Cook received his Certified Franchise Executive designation from the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives, affirming his strong credibility and franchising expertise.
When asked about the reasoning behind his decision to join TES’ Performance Enhancement Center, Cook said he admired Powell’s vision and the company’s unique business model. As an alternative career coaching service, TES focuses on education, awareness and discovery and provides aspiring entrepreneurs a safe space to learn and explore possibilities. This is unlike the franchise broker/sales industry that is only focused on the ready, willing and able buyer. He’s excited to work with franchisor members interested in awarding franchises to those who can achieve their desired Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity with their model.
“95% of TES clients end up in a business that they admittedly would have never looked at, or would have pre-maturely dismissed, without the help of their TES Coach,” Cook said. “And that’s the beauty of the TES model, we empower our clients through our coaching and unique discovery process, so they can explore options …even if it’s a model/industry they wouldn’t have previously considered. That’s truly putting the best interests of the client first.”
As Member Relations Strategist, Cook joins Susan Stilwell, Business Development Strategist, and other TES visionaries tasked with helping all TES clients and members succeed.
“Serving businesses and helping businesses grow is something that makes me feel good at the end of the day,” Cook said. “I am excited to join the TES family and eager to get started.”
