UNITED STATES — Kampgrounds of America President and CEO Pat Hittmeier has been named one of North America’s 41 Top Franchise Leaders by Franchise Business Review.
“Franchise leaders were selected for Franchise Business Review’s 2017 Top Franchise Leaders list as a result of the franchisees at their brands providing positive feedback regarding their leadership during a recent franchisee satisfaction survey,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review.
He adds, “Each has proven they are successfully facing the unique challenges franchise leaders face – that of meeting the demands of traditional corporate leadership while leading groups of independent business owners – their franchisees – to success.”
To identify this year’s top franchise leaders, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months worth of data from approximately 30,000 franchisees representing 334 brands regarding their brands’ leadership and culture, as well as their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.
Hittmeier has been at the helm of Kampgrounds of America Inc. since 2009, but has been a member of KOA’s Home Office team for the past 36 years. He’s worked his way through nearly every department at KOA, familiarizing himself with every aspect of the camping industry.
