New Business Manager Pairs with Valenta After Years of Business Leadership Experience
Alan Peck, experienced business manager, spent 25 years in the ophthalmic surgical and medical device business managing large sales teams, implementing technologies to streamline processes, and establishing programs for professional education. Alan has a talent for sustaining consecutive year-over-year growth and increasing market share in a short period of time. In Alan’s previous position at Bausch + Lomb, he improved the company’s bottom line by restructuring sales teams and developing processes that led the Surgical Sales Group to the top-performing spot, where it generated tens of millions of dollars annually.
These years of business leadership experience are what led Alan to take on his role as a Managing Director in the U.S. for Valenta Franchise. As the founder and principal of his own consulting firm, Alan provides strategic business consulting services to the medical device industry, with a focus on eye health. In his current position with Valenta Franchise, Alan is able to continue this work by providing his business partners with an enormous portfolio of solutions for staffing, digital transformation, and organization that only large enterprises could previously afford.
Alan is trusted by the companies he works with because of his work ethic. He dives into complex organizational and procedural challenges with a wealth of expertise and finds customized solutions for large and small businesses across all verticals. As he helps build Valenta’s presence in the U.S., Alan’s consultative approach and excellent listening skills help him match clients with the resources they need to transform their business and their profit margins. Through all this experience, Alan learned three key ingredients to success: Be different from everyone else, find a partner you can trust, and deliver next-generation solutions to help businesses thrive.
Business Success Found with Valenta Franchise
Alan was recently asked to weigh in about why he decided to partner with Valenta and whether he has any hot tips for business leaders looking to increase their market share.
When asked about why he chose to partner with Valenta Franchise, Alan replied that Valenta offers the service deliverables in a professional and cost effective way for customers. He also says, “I am excited to build this business together with new and existing managing partners into a brand which our customers rely on to achieve leadership in their markets as well. That is a true partnership.”
We also asked Alan about the key factor in his business success. Alan responded saying he works to provide solutions that are best for each customer, and never assumes he knows their challenges before they share them. Collaborating on projects with the goal of mutual benefit and mutual ownership is paramount. If there is not a short term solution that he can provide to benefit a customer, he has confidence that there will be at a later time.
Lastly, when Alan was asked about his partnership with FBA broker, Patrick Meehan, he responded by saying Pat Meehan was a fabulous franchise coach and mentor. He took time to understand Alan’s individual needs, introduced him to a diverse group of brands which met his criteria, and provided really valuable feedback after every meeting. Ultimately, Valenta offered the opportunity to complement Alan’s background and consulting strategy with real deliverables to help businesses of any size. Pat’s mentorship, thoughtfulness, and honesty were invaluable when it came to the additional opportunity to build a team and help launch a franchise in the U.S., which was another aspect that had great appeal to Alan. Alan and Pat continue to speak regularly today, working to find candidates who can also find their success story with Valenta Franchise.
