“Paul has played a critical role in Synuma’s growth over the past five years. He brings a valuable perspective as someone who has worked for many years in franchise development for a franchisor and as a multi-unit franchisee. He understands the industry and has helped Synuma develop a solution that addresses and overcomes the challenges that multi-unit developers face,” said Fred Mastropasqua, Co-Founder and CEO of Synuma. “I am confident that under Paul’s leadership and guidance, Synuma will continue its growth trajectory and solidify its reputation as the only single project management solution that provides franchisors, franchisees and corporations the ability to seamlessly track their business process from initial sales through the real estate and construction stages to ongoing operations for multiple locations.”

In addition, he has lead franchise development efforts, as well as served in a variety of leadership and management roles for major brands, including Marriott/HOST, Kraft Foods, Concessions International, Dock 3, and FSC Franchise Co.
“I am honored to be named president and truly excited about Synuma’s future. We have been a leader in franchise project management and development, providing innovated solutions that allow automated networking, communication and reporting between all departments within an organization, as well as transparency and software alignment,” said Giggi. “With the recent addition of artificial intelligence capabilities for our proprietary CRM, franchisors now can better predict outcomes, improve their overall recruitment results and boost closing success rates.”
As president, Giggi will be responsible for developing and executing all aspects of the company’s growth strategies, including operational management, marketing, sales, customer engagement, information technology and financial oversight.
Synuma was formed in 2016 by professionals who have over 50 years of combined experience as franchisors and as franchisees with backgrounds in the sales, real estate, construction and operations segments. The Synuma team recognized an unmet need in the industry for franchisors to better meet their franchisee onboarding, site opening timelines and development budget goals.
