The Professionals Behind Every Visiting Angels Franchise
When you buy a Visiting Angels franchise, you are buying into an established family of entrepreneurs and leaders in the home care industry. With Visiting Angels, you’ll never be in the business alone. You’ll always have our leadership team to turn to as well as other franchise owners who are walking the same path as you.
Based on feedback from our franchisees, the Visiting Angels’ franchise network just celebrated our 10th year in a row as a “top franchise.” The strong collaboration with every one of our 600+ franchise owners is the reason why we have attained this annual accolade. We are confident as you get to know our leadership team, you’ll be even more excited to join our family of franchise owners.
Leading the Visiting Angels team is Larry Meigs, our President and CEO. Larry co-founded Visiting Angels in 1998 and leads our team with the vision that “a home care company should put caring first.” Since day one, Larry has been at the helm of this phenomenal organization that has changed the lives of families and business owners alike.
Our Operations Team is led by Karon Austin, Senior Vice President of Operations, and Cathy Berg, Associate Senior Vice President of Operations. Together, Karon and Cathy bring more than 50 years of home care industry experience to our team.
Franchise development continues to be a major area of focus for our organization. Dave Ritterling, Vice President of Development, is responsible for awarding franchise locations to prospective entrepreneurs. While Jerry Capaccio, Vice President of Franchise Development, manages development, sales, and future growth of our franchise territories.
Those who join our organization as franchisees will work with Dan Drennen, Senior Vice President of Brand Administration, who is responsible for organizational compliance and managing the day-to-day operations of the corporate office.
