Franchise Council of Australia appoints new CEO

The Franchise Council of Australia (FCA) has appointed experienced leader Matthew Monaghan as its new CEO.

With over 20 years of experience, Monaghan has held CEO positions at the Australian Childcare Alliance Victoria and Chiropractic Australia, as well as senior leadership roles with Carers Victoria, Australian College of Nurse Practitioners, the Institute of Public Administration Australia, and the Victorian Ombudsman.

Brendan Green, Board Chair of FCA, said the Board is looking forward to working with Monaghan and member will have the opportunity to meet him at the National Franchise Convention at the Gold Coast on 15-16 May.

“Matthew’s wealth of experience and expertise will aid the FCA’s efforts to advocate for responsible economic leadership, in order to support the ongoing success of our members, franchising, and businesses across Australia.”

Monaghan’s appointment comes as the FCA prepares to engage with the Federal Government on the upcoming review of the Franchising Code of Australia.

This process will see the FCA highlight the numerous challenges faced by the nearly 10,000 franchised businesses across Australia and outline how policy reform can help drive job creation and business growth.

“I look forward to working to progress the advocacy efforts of the FCA as we strive to drive the advancement of franchising through the delivery of relevant, purposeful and influential member services,” said Monaghan.

Monaghan replaces acting CEO Peter White, who will move into the role of Chief Operations Officer.
