The International Franchise Association has made it a priority to promote and protect the franchising business model in 2017, especially as a new presidential administration takes over in Washington, D.C. That’s why the organization is adding an experienced government relations and public policy professional to its team.
Suzanne Beall comes to the IFA after working for the Federal Legislative Director for the National Association of Home Builders. She’s now taking on the role of Assistant Vice President of Government Relations and Public Policy.
In a press release, IFA President and CEO Robert Cresanti, CFE, said, “Suzanne’s strong relationships, particularly with pro-business Democrats and her extensive history working on labor issues at NAHB, will help IFA’s ongoing efforts to ensure the next administration and Congress develop pro-growth policies and reduce the regulatory burden placed on small business franchises.”
Beall has experience serving as a Federal lobbyist and advocate in multiple fields. She’s confident that experience will help her thrive at the IFA.
“I stand ready to work with the IFA to fight back against escalating workforce and labor-related issues that could burden the business model and look forward to representing small business owners across the country and here in Washington.”
