New Jersey PostNet Franchise Owner Named Business Person of the Year
Tom Fletcher honored for his contributions to the community
Because PostNet franchise helps so many small businesses, our franchisees tend to become important people in their local business community. Tom Fletcher, who owns a PostNet in Sewell, New Jersey, is a perfect example. He was recently named Business Person of the Year by the Washington township Chamber of Commerce.
Tom was a New York City banker before starting his Neighborhood Business Center, and one of his major motivations for making the change was his desire to spend more face-to-face time with business owners, offering them advice as well as practical solutions to their challenges.
“I am now the president of the Washington Township Chamber of Commerce, president of the local Rotary Club, president of my BNI networking group. I sit on the mayor’s economic development task force, volunteer for a food bank and help raise money for the local hospital,” he explained in a Q&A with PostNet. “So I don’t just talk about playing a role in the community, I do it. People do business with people they know, and people respond to people who show they care.”
