James Caan CBE, British business icon, executive-search-industry thought leader, and global philanthropist, has joined forces with FPC Worldwide, one of the leading recruiting firms and franchise companies in the United States. James’s strategic alliance with FPC will help expand their footprint in the U.S. and open new markets internationally.

Caan is widely regarded as one of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs, having funded, built and sold many recruitment firms that now generate more than a billion dollars in revenue combined. He assisted the British government in establishing Start-Up Loans that created more than 28,000 new businesses in three years, which led to him being awarded a Commander of the British Empire title. James has also appeared as a main panel investor on the BBC’s popular Dragons’ Den, the UK version of Shark Tank. With 3.3 million followers James is well recognized as the #2 influencer on LinkedIn in the UK.

Commenting on the alliance, James Caan CBE, said, “In my experience of working in the sector globally, there are few opportunities that offer the exclusive benefits that an FPC Franchise provides: The chance to build your own business and team from anywhere in the world with daily support and training from FPC. You get direct access to knowledge from their wider community network, as well as the professional freedom to be autonomous and achieve a true work-life balance, with the potential to generate significant income. The level of support they provide to franchisees is fantastic and I’m looking forward to introducing the FPC story to new markets.”

FPC Worldwide was founded in 1959 and began opening franchise locations 14 years later. With over 60 successful franchise businesses throughout the USA, they have the benefit of a seasoned leadership team with over 150 years of experience, and a people-first philosophy. Named by Forbes as one of the Top 50 Executive Recruitment Firms in America, FPC has also been listed among the Top 50 in Franchisee Satisfaction by Franchise Business Review.

One of the reasons for FPC’s longstanding success is the leadership of CEO Ron Herzog and President Jeff Herzog, who work tirelessly to ensure the continued profitability and growth for each of their franchisees. On the affiliation with James, Ron, said “With the alliance firmly in place, we’re excited about what the future brings for our growth. We expect to increase the number of franchise locations by 15% this year alone, with a five-year projection of doubling the size of the business.”

Outlining FPC’s approach, Ron went on to say, ‘‘We have worked as a team for decades to build mutual trust between ourselves and the FPC franchise owners. We’ve evolved with the times through technology, and we’re proud we’ve never lost the high-touch human support, which is crucial to building our successful culture.”

Jeff wholeheartedly agrees that the human element is a key driver of success for the company. He said, “FPC owners have a real zest to share job assignments and ideas. For us, it’s simply ‘all about the people,’ which are the words we live by. On most days, Ron and I, along with our support team, are in touch with every franchise owner.”

The partnership between James Caan and FPC was orchestrated by Doug Bugie, leader of FPC franchising, who has sold and opened more than 800 executive search franchises globally. James and Doug have worked together in the past to build a global executive recruitment franchise in more than 30 countries, which was sold to a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange.
