As the 2018 tax season closes, Liberty Tax, a leading tax preparation franchise, is focused on the future and the evolution that is being driven by its new executive team made up of some of the most experienced small business owners in the industry and backed by innovators who helped usher in computerized tax preparation and built two of the top three retail tax preparation franchises in the United States.

“Liberty Tax has been at the forefront of the tax industry for several decades and their success speaks volumes. The new executive team has the experience and know-how to take the company to the next level,” said Chairman and CEO of the C-Suite Network, Jeffrey Hayzlett.

CEO Nicole Ossenfort, COO Shaun York, and Chief Strategy Officer Ryan Dodson each have been with Liberty Tax since the Company was a fairly new player in that tax industry. Liberty Tax began with five locations in 1997 and grew to more than 4,000 in the last fiscal year. As owners with the company for much of that time, the new leadership team has experience informed by those years of impressive growth. They also bring a fresh, new outlook that will inspire new ideas and re-energize the franchise base.

“Ideas and innovation built Liberty Tax,” said founder and Chairman of the Board John T. Hewitt. “This new team is young and experienced, two factors that will continue that trend. They also have my support and the support of leaders, like Jack Seal, Gordon D’Angelo and Martha O’Gorman, who each have more than 30 years of tax and franchising experience. They helped build Liberty Tax into an industry leader, and built Jackson Hewitt before that. It’s a powerful combination that is unmatched in business.”

Liberty Tax has always been on the cutting edge, and, with its new management team in place, the Company is poised to continue as a leader and innovator in retail tax preparation and franchising.
