Since Paul was 15 years old, he’s been growing membership and servicing members in one capacity or another. Growing up in Washington State, Paul’s first real job was at a health club providing customer service and sales. What could be better than helping a member to get fit and a business owner with their business’ financial fitness? Over the years, Paul advanced to sales management, regional franchise manager, Sr. Director of US franchise operations, culminating in building and selling his own franchise system. During Paul’s career he’s reviewed and consulted on hundreds of leases, multimillion dollar equipment buys and dozens of business acquisitions.
Paul loves working complex problems and is happiest working with franchisees, a desk full of business plans, proformas, reports and reviewing sales systems tactical marketing tools. Paul is active in his boys’ scout troop and consults with a nonprofit that focuses on youth personal development, health and addiction recovery. Romp n’ Roll’s programs and focus on early childhood development inspired Paul to drop consulting and focus 100% on growing membership and servicing franchisees so they can positively affect more children. Outside of work Paul tries very hard to keep up with his super active wife and high school age sons. A weekend in the Summers household is synonymous with “outdoors” and almost always includes state parks, horses, bird dogs, and hundreds of miles of shuttling his family around to their next adventure.
