Alesia Visconti has over 20 years of experience serving as a C-level executive for both domestic and international companies in service industries. In each of her executive leadership roles, Visconti was responsible for driving organizational development and led each company to operate at its peak levels of performance.

After learning about, and, subsequently, becoming passionate about the franchise industry, in 2014 Visconti became a FranServe consultant. She experienced the value of FranServe’s training, mentoring and support programs firsthand as a Certified Franchise Consultant, and quickly became one of FranServe’s Top Producers. Visconti’s achievements led to mentoring other consultants and spearheading “Success Programs” for the company. Her vast experience in driving organizational success, orchestrating innovative programs, and leveraging partner relations, served as the perfect foundation to further expand FranServe as she took on the role of President in 2016 and CEO in 2018.

As the driving force behind FranServe, Visconti never loses sight of her mission: to help others achieve their dreams of business ownership through franchising. To that end, she has dedicated FranServe to training and supporting the industry’s best franchise consultants. As a highly committed and active leader in the franchise industry, Visconti serves on the International Franchise Association's VetFran and Membership Committees.

Visconti also founded Fran-Aid, an initiative of FranServe that donates globally to organization helping others. Says Visconti, “As a Purpose Driven Organization (PDO), we take pride in our social responsibility to share our success with those who need it most.”

Visconti is the CEO & Publisher of Franchise Dictionary magazine. She is also an author and professional speaker who lives by the motto, “work hard, play hard, help others, repeat.”
