Dearborn West, was founded in 2003 by Dan Brunell. Previously a senior operating executive in the staffing industry, he helped establish best practices in the emerging franchise development space. By applying executive recruitment strategies to help franchise systems find appropriate talent, Dan has created a high value service that saves tremendous time for both candidates and clients.
He has first hand experience in leaving the corporate life to start a business, and has since done so as a franchisee, a licensee and independently. He previously served as a trainer for franchise brokers and recently published Franchise Broker’s Handbook. Few people know the franchise marketplace better, or have his matching skills.
We are independent and not limited to a small group of companies like a lot of brokers. Additionally, our client companies list their internal resales as well as new target markets with us, so we have access to opportunities that you will not find on listing websites.
