The appointment will see Wilmot lead the FCA in its work for the $144 billion franchise sector in Australia, representing franchisees, franchisors and service providers.

Wilmot previously served as director of the Australian Association of Convenience Stores and as an international director on the board of the National Association of Convenience Stories in the US.

Outgoing FCA chairman, Michael Paul, said Wilmot’s expertise in Australian franchising and his ongoing involvement with the FCA would help the organisation grow even stronger.

“Warren’s experience, passion, insight and leadership as Chairman will be incredibly valuable to the FCA and its members, as the organisation pursues its mission of promoting, enhancing and protecting Australian franchising, and creating opportunity and reward for both franchisors and franchisees,” said Paul.
