DENVER, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Private business owners in New Orleans will benefit from their very own board of directors supplied by The Alternative Board's newest office opening soon in the NOLA area. Jason Zickerman, TAB's CEO and President and a longtime lover of New Orleans, will travel to the area at the end of June to fulfill a personal vision and promise to the business community: the award of a free TAB franchise to the right business leader whom he hopes to meet with during his visit in "The Big Easy."
"My trip to New Orleans at the end of June signifies my resolve to take care of unfinished business I have for the city," said Zickerman. "After Katrina, the destruction to New Orleans was severe; however the time has arrived to make good on the promise I made to myself to award a TAB franchise to the right party or person – someone qualified and impassioned to help small business owners be successful. The NOLA market is primed and ready for growth, and my vision is to bring TAB's successful model to propel that growth forward." TAB is the world's largest franchise system providing peer advisory boards, executive coaching services, and alignment training for business leaders.
Zickerman's visit is scheduled for June 28 through July 1, when he hopes to meet and select the beneficiary of the free TAB franchise office. During his visit, he also intends to enjoy the sights and attractions of the city where, one day, his family hopes to spend more time. Zickerman recalls being told by a New Orleans native years ago, "if you love New Orleans, it will love you back," and through the years he has found that to be entirely true.
Individuals wishing to be considered for the free TAB franchise may complete the initial contact form at http://www.thealternativeboard.com/franchise-opportunity/apply. TAB seeks a very specific type of business professional for the franchise ownership; characteristics of successful candidates include achievements in business consulting, proven entrepreneurship, business development, and dedication to cultivating relationships. Applicants will be prequalified by TAB's Director of Franchise Acquisition, Chris Phillips, and appointments will be set for final candidates to meet with Jason Zickerman in New Orleans on July 1, 2013.
