Nancy Bigley, Seasoned Industry Leader, to Guide Prominent Network of Female Franchisors

Bottle & Bottega, the premier art and wine studio, announced today that CEO Nancy Bigley has been appointed Chair of the Women's Franchise Committee (WFC) for the International Franchise Association (IFA).

"Nancy emerged as the natural choice to lead the Women's Franchise Committee," said Robert Cresanti, president and CEO of the IFA. "Her background within the franchising industry speaks for itself - she has been a key figure in leading change and paving the way for new opportunities for women in franchising. Her previous role as Vice Chair will be a key asset as we extend our work to broaden the reach of female franchisors."

In her new role as WFC Chair, Bigley will be responsible for leading a wide network of business professionals dedicated to strengthening the success of women in the franchising industry. The committee, its leaders and members are dedicated to supporting women-owned franchise businesses at the franchisor level - helping provide strategies for growth and other business objectives such as marketing and leadership.

"It is such an honor to lead the Women's Franchise Committee," Bigley said. "In my years as a committee member, and then as the Vice Chair, I have witnessed firsthand the tremendous momentum we have created to increase the number of women in franchising. The work the WFC has done and continues to do is truly inspiring, and I am proud to now lead the charge in enacting change in the industry."

In addition to leading the WFC, Bigley is a member of the IFA's Franship program, where she mentors new franchisors. Bigley is also a member of the IFA's 2017 Convention Planning Committee, sits on the Membership Committee and serves as an IFA Ambassador for new IFA members. Prior to her role as Bottle & Bottega's CEO, Bigley led operations and franchise leadership teams for Dunkin Brands, American Leak Detection and The Dwyer Group.

Given her level of accomplishments and the respect she commands within the franchise industry, Bigley regularly speaks at industry events and leads conferences dedicated to a variety of topics, including franchising, leadership and entrepreneurship.
