Gary Prenevost’s Canadian Franchise Consultants Team
Meet Canadian Franchise Consultant, Entrepreneur Mike Martin
There is tremendous interest in franchising in Ontario — so much so that Mike Martin partnered with Gary Prenevost to help guide people through the process of discovering and researching franchises in order to find the optimal opportunity.
Mike comes from a family of entrepreneurs, including his father who operated a multi line automobile dealership. Mike continued the family tradition in the automobile industry joining General Motors Corporation as a production engineer. He was quickly promoted through various management positions including field responsibility for dealer relations. Mike realized his ambition of joining the dealer retail network after nearly a decade of corporate life, eventually becoming General Manager and Partner of a highly successful Chrysler dealership in Toronto.
After 25 years of corporate and retail experience and coincidental with the birth of his first child, Mike decided it was time to make changes in his life, selling his partnership and leaving the automobile industry. Over the next few years Mike partnered in the development of a performance assessment business with clients in both the world of business and athleticism. He also applied his business skills and interest in his community as Managing Director of a children’s charity. Mike has a real world appreciation for the demands, excitement and rewards of entrepreneurial life that gives him a practical perspective in helping folks who are seeking their own business.
