Our former director of business development and team support, Kevin Stewart, recently retired from his position to open a FirstLight location in Richardson, Tx. Stewart has spent the past two years working with us at the corporate level, helping to build this company from the ground up. A certified franchise executive (CFE) with a career in the franchising industry that spans over 25 years, Stewart is an immeasurable asset to FirstLight and has contributed substantially to the success and growth of the brand and our franchisees. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, Stewart will have the opportunity to put the knowledge and advice he was once offering other franchisees to the test.
After a long career on the corporate end of franchising that required constant travel and long hours away from home, Stewart wanted to settle down and have more time to spend with his family. He first entered the home care industry seven years ago after experiencing first-hand the need for quality caregivers when he and his wife provided care for his own mother throughout her battle with cancer. Having witnessed the FirstLight concept take off and gain momentum over the past two years and recognizing the increasing demand for in-home care, Stewart was confident that he wanted to remain in the industry.
This is a great testament on behalf of the FirstLight brand and although we’ll miss Stewart on the corporate side, we are excited to see his franchise location flourish in North Dallas!
