Premier Sport is delighted to welcome Gareth Owen who launched his Blackpool territory in September 2015.

Premier Sport is delighted to welcome Gareth Owen who launched his Blackpool territory in September 2015. The former Royal Marine Commando joins six new starters to Premier Education Group following completion of Premier’s rigorous induction process.

Premier Sport - Gareth OwenGareth lives in Southport with his wife Kay their two teenage daughters. It is all change in the Owen household, as one daughter begins her degree course at Sheffield University and Gareth embarks on a new career with Premier.

Prior to Gareth’s 20 plus year career in senior sales management roles, Gareth was a Commando with the Royal Marines seeing military action across the world. Gareth is modest when describing his time as a Commando, he does acknowledge though that the extreme experiences combined with the team ethos, discipline and drive required, helped him build a successful career.

His experience operating in a variety of sales and account management roles included, FMCG, Sport retail and high end Hifi sectors.

Gareth was seeking a new business which offered him the opportunity to combine his key passions which are, giving children the opportunity to be active, to build a business based on ethical values and to use his vast experience in relationship building and sales to maximum effect.

Gareth undertook a detailed research into franchising which included online searches and attending the British Franchise Exhibition where he was introduced to the British Franchise Association (bfa). It soon became clear to Gareth that Premier Sport were the only physical activity based and sports coaching franchise to consider.

After attending a Discovery Day in June and subsequently meeting local franchisees, Gareth was enthused and confidently completed his business plan with the support of the Premier team. His due diligence provided the information he needed to decide that his business would deliver the greatest impact in Blackpool.

What Our Franchisees Say

Before I started with Premier it never entered my head I would even run my own business, let alone three, successfully. I never dreamt I would do the things I now do as daily routines, and couldn't see myself being in this position without the guidance and support I have received. Our projected turnover this year is between £700 - £750k over our three franchises. This has grown steadily over the last few years and is something we are very committed to achieving this year.
