[Columbia, Maryland] January 9, 2012 —National signage and graphics company Signs By Tomorrow is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Ron Frost to the position of Franchise Business Consultant for Signs By Tomorrow’s Central Region.
Although new to Signs By Tomorrow, a leader in the custom signage, graphics and imaging space, Frost is a veteran of the signage and graphics industry and former owner of a sign business, with a total of 24 years experience in mechanical engineering, sales and management. In his new role as Franchise Business Consultant for Signs By Tomorrow’s Central Region, Frost is responsible for assisting in the growth and development of individual franchisees.
Frost says of his new role, “As a Franchise Business Consultant I have two basic goals: to gain a clear understanding of each franchisee’s needs, wishes, goals, and desires; and to help each franchisee create the plan that will best enable him or her to achieve the desired results. Whether they want higher profits, increased sales, to break into a new market, more efficient workflow, or to figure out a path to less stress and more fun, I’m here to help them figure out how to achieve it.” says Frost.
Before joining Signs By Tomorrow, Frost and his wife owned and operated an independent custom signage and graphics business in Cape Coral, Florida. Prior to that Frost worked as a mechanical engineer for Gerber Scientific Products and as a branch manager for Grimco and for Clarke Systems.
Frost believes his experience has given him a broad understanding of both the challenges and opportunities faced by the custom signage, imaging and graphics industry today. He says, “Having owned a sign and graphics business, I have a greater understanding of what it takes to achieve desired results. Like many, I was challenged by the past economic dip. When my market fell, I had to immediately create a new plan, and that plan and the action I took made a significant improvement in my business, and in my life. Now as a Franchise Business Consultant, I am committed to helping each center I serve formulate a plan to not only addresses the current daily needs and challenges, but also create the longer term pathway of business growth, profitability and success.”
Frost holds an undergraduate degree in education from the University of Connecticut as well as associate degrees in applied science and mechanical engineering from State University of New York Cobleskill and Hartford State Technical College, respectively. He has received training and certificates in several Dale Carnegie success series programs. Frost is a business coach, public speaker and active member of Toastmasters International. He resides in Cape Coral, Florida.
