Pete Uhlman has been helping buy, build, manage and sell businesses for twenty-five years. It is his passion. As a former business owner and corporate CFO, he is passionate about helping entrepreneurs identify and realize their dreams of business ownership.
Pete views the greatest asset he brings to candidates is the three decades he has spent in business ownership and leadership roles. He started his career in engineering where he quickly rose to be one of the youngest Vice Presidents at an international oil company. He left that position to serve as the Vice President of Facilities and Engineering for an international real estate developer. He returned to the United States in 2000 to launch his own real estate investment and development company. He transitioned from that role to become the Chief Financial Officer for a mid-market manufacturing company after serving on their Board of Directors. Prior to joining FranChoice, he served as the Vice President of Operations for an international manufacturing and branding company. With diverse business ownership and executive leadership experience in multiple industries, Pete has developed the skills necessary to help candidates find the perfect franchise opportunity and to achieve their goals.
Pete came to FranChoice to help candidates who might benefit from his financial and operations background. Helping guide and coach people to achieve their potential is his passion. Because of the diversity of his background, he is well suited to help candidates navigate the evaluation of franchise opportunities. And, by using a well-defined and proven process, Pete will comfortably assist you in pinpointing your motivations, goals and ambitions so you too can realize your dreams of successful franchise ownership.
Pete lives in Exton, PA with his wife, Helen, a veterinarian, and their quadruplet teen-age daughters. When he isn’t coaching people to achieve their business dreams, Pete is a nationally recognized Cross Country and Track and Field coach.
