The International Franchise Association’s Foundation (IFA) today announced that PrimePay will become a Gold Sponsor of VetFran after previously being a Bronze Sponsor. PrimePay is a VetFran supplier member, and their increased support from the Bronze Tier to the Gold Tier represents an additional investment of $10,000.
“I was thrilled to hear that another one of our amazing sponsors decided to increase their support for the VetFran program and therefore their support for veterans around the country. PrimePay’s decision to increase its funding speaks to the success and growth of VetFran, and the ever-broadening coalition of companies that share our mission,” said Jeff Bevis, CFE, Chair of VetFran Committee.
PrimePay is a leading provider of payroll, tax, and HR solutions serving small businesses nationwide. Dedicated to supporting military veteran business owners, PrimePay launched their Veterans in Business (VIB) initiative to support and give back to the community. Through philanthropic activities, providing education, and a special product offering, the program is aimed to help veterans succeed at their highest potential.
“Becoming a Gold Sponsor for VetFran was an easy decision,” explained PrimePay CEO Bill Pellicano, “The vision for our VIB initiative directly aligns with the VetFran’s mission to be a leading resource for veterans and their families in the franchising industry. We’re thrilled to become more involved and are excited for the opportunity to connect with more veteran business owners to help them succeed.”
Monty Heath, PrimePay’s Director of Veterans in Business and U.S. Navy SEAL, represents PrimePay on the VetFran committee. Monty helps to steer the strategic direction and growth of the program.
“I’m looking forward to working with more veterans and helping them to achieve their business goals,” said Monty. “Franchising is a great solution for veterans. I can’t wait to meet veteran franchisors and franchisees at the IFA conference this February,” he continued.
Monty, an 11-year veteran of the U.S. Navy SEALs, also serves as the Director of Military Programs for Higher Ground and is Executive Director of the nonprofit VetToCEO.
Monty will be at the International Franchise Association’s Annual Convention, with two other U.S. Navy SEALS. Stop by booth 243 to say hello and see Monty on stage with Carly Fiorina.
