Sport Clips Haircuts makes organizational shifts to up its game
GEORGETOWN, Texas (February 20, 2018) – Sport Clips Haircuts, the nation’s leading men’s and boys’ hair care provider, has promoted the head of its real estate department, Greg Smith, to the newly created role of chief development officer to combine the strength of its site selection and franchise development work. To further support the move, Jessica Zavala Rossy will become the new director of real estate, and Dave Wells will work with the team as senior director of franchising.
“The two disciplines of real estate site selection and franchise development go hand-in-hand. Greg has been one our strongest assets in this critical area for Sport Clips franchisees. Jessica and Dave both have proven backgrounds in their fields, and they have a solid support staff to make this a smart organizational shift for our current franchisees and those who may be considering Sport Clips as a future business investment," says Sport Clips Founder and CEO Gordon Logan. "No matter the real estate market, Sport Clips has long been a business real estate developers seek out, which is one of the reasons Sport Clips is such an attractive option for anyone looking to invest in a franchise."
Smith headed the company's real estate team for more than a decade and has been in the industry 17 years, and he has been recognized as one of the "Top 10 Real Estate Executives Under 40" by Chain Store Magazine. Zavala Rossy has 15 years of real estate experience, and the past five years of Wells' 15 years in franchise development experience has been with Sport Clips.
Smith says, "This reorganization speaks to Sport Clips' commitment to franchisee success through maximizing brand strength and recognition. By aligning franchise development and real estate opportunities, a market's untapped potential for growth can be better realized."
Based on demand, the newly formed team is looking at the company's mature markets for additional growth and recently reopened several markets in California, Florida, Rhode Island, Texas and Wisconsin. They expect to soon open more markets in Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana and Mississippi.
