Colorado Executive Network Welcomes FranNet as New Sponsor

DENVER — (May 13, 2020) — The Colorado Executive Network (CEN) announces that FranNet is the newest sponsor of the Executives in Transition Program (EIT).

Patrice Barber, Director of the Colorado Executive Network is happy to welcome Stacy Swift and FranNet to the team. “We are very excited to have FranNet as a sponsor for the EIT program. Stacy and the FranNet group gives our executives more opportunities to explore as they work through their transition plans.”

Stacy Swift, Market President of FranNet is thrilled to be a part of the EIT program. “We are extremely excited to be working with Patrice and the EIT program to offer education and information on entrepreneurship and self-employment opportunities as an alternative, or in addition to, traditional employment. For 25 years, throughout Colorado, we have helped hundreds of executives in career transition find business and franchise ownership opportunities as the next step in their career.  Our services align perfectly with those offered through the EIT program—to simply provide information on a variety of options for those making career changes.”

The Executives in Transition program assists executives at pivotal points in their career. Together with peers and experts, Patrice Barber helps executives hone their personal branding skills, preparing them for a transition to their next position. “After 4 years of working with over 250 executives, 82% are in their next position within 90 days and 8% are in their next position within 7 days. I am especially pleased that our cohorts continue on in the alumni program for years because of the deep relationships and robust networks that are formed.”

Executives are in active search every 3-5 years on average. CEN is proud to offer the EIT program to our community to cut the time of finding a new opportunity by 50-70%.
