Felix De Wit

Leading expert on franchising in Western Europe, ex-master of the RE/MAX franchisee.

Title/designation: CEO.

Introductory/biography: After my PhD Mathematics I started my career at the Royal Military Academy in The Netherlands and served the army for almost 20 years. During the last years of serving I studied for my real estate license and started my Real estate company in 1995. In 1998 I started as a Master Franchise Owner for RE/MAX (a USA founded real estate franchise) and sold more than 100 franchises in my country during 10 Years. Also developed RE/MAX for Germany-North and Belgium. In 2009 I sold the company and “addicted by Franchising” in 2009 I started my existing (international) company supporting international Franchisors developing their brands for the European Market. Our company works with franchisors across retail, cosmetics, beauty, real estate, pharmacy, food industry and personal and business services. We support clients to establish a franchise model for carrying on business and assist them to implement changes to that model and associated documentation to reflect amendments to franchise and other applicable laws. My well-known business slogan “to build a big business you need a small focus” I will practice in private as well while playing my favorite sport golf…….always your focus on the ball and the strategy how to reach the green in the best possible way.
