WPA Partner Profile - Robert Westhorp

23rd December 2011

When Robert Westhorp set off for The British Franchise Exhibition in Manchester five years ago, he had no idea that he would meet a former supplier and eventually join the company.

When Robert Westhorp set off for The British Franchise Exhibition in Manchester five years ago, he had no idea that he would meet a former supplier and eventually join the company.

WPA FranchiseeOriginally from the North East but now based in the Manchester area, Robert was frustrated after 30 years in textile manufacturing and supply chain management by future prospects for his career.

So, after many years managing contracts supplying clothing to companies such as Marks & Spencer, Robert headed for the exhibition looking with an open mind for a new career challenge.

Although he saw and considered opportunities in various industries including plumbing and car body repairs, healthcare insurance provider WPA particularly caught his eye because he had been a client of the company in a former role.

“Although I had not really expected to find work in financial services, once I started speaking with them I was impressed and wanted to know more.”

After several further meetings building and testing a possible relationship, Robert eventually joined WPA, taking its territory in Great Manchester and North Cheshire.

It was the right decision from the start. Robert got off to a flying start, in fact, the best ever by a new WPA partner. Since then Robert has continued to build the momentum and has become an award-winning partner.

“The key is hard work and applying the proven business model successfully. I’d recommend franchising and WPA as a career, and a visit to the British Franchise Exhibition as a great way to find ideas, meet franchisors and discover which company or industry is the best fit for you.”
