DENVER, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Private small business owners in Boston will soon benefit from their very own board of directors supplied by The Alternative Board's newest office there. The Alternative Board (TAB) is the world's largest franchise system providing peer advisory boards, executive coaching services, and alignment training for business leaders. TAB seeks interested and qualified individuals to operate the franchise office that will utilize TAB's proprietary tools and methods to help business owners in the Boston area. Interested applicants may complete the contact form at http://www.thealternativeboard.com/franchise-opportunity/apply.
Jackie Gernaey, the first woman to purchase a TAB franchise in 1999, operates the TAB Suffolk – Long Island office in New York. "I began with TAB nearly 14 years ago and I've never looked back," said Gernaey. "TAB has allowed me to achieve so much, but that's a small impact compared to the success accomplished by our local business leaders through TAB's services. As TAB brings a new office to Boston, I look forward to seeing their local economy grow and benefit as well." Gernaey's TAB office currently provides peer boards and executive coaching to nearly 100 small business owners on Long Island.
Allen Fishman, Founder and Executive Chairman of The Alternative Board, shared his excitement relating to TAB's expansion in Massachusetts: "We view Boston as an area where we will continue The Alternative Board's mission of helping small and midsize business owners achieve work-life balance while leading their companies to their maximum potential." Mr. Fishman has authored two books appearing on the Wall Street Journal's best-sellers list and knows firsthand the best practices for small business coaching and peer boards.
