Eric Schechterman, President, FranNet of Boston


As part of one of the top franchise consulting teams in the country, Eric works closely with clients to understand their goals, values, lifestyle, and interests to help coach them through the process of learning about franchising, and if it is a fit for them and their family.


Eric has worked as the Chief Development Officer for a funding firm focused primarily on funding start-up franchises. During his time there, he gained extensive knowledge on the ins-and-outs of franchising from the back end forward. He has helped thousands of small businesses open their doors, many of which were franchises, and has facilitated hundreds of SBA loans.


Eric has been a featured speaker at numerous franchise conferences, inspiring entrepreneurs with successful small business funding strategies and training franchise executives on how to maximize their funding relationships. He was honored to earn a distinction of Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) by the Board of Governors of the IFA in 2016.
