Power 50 2022: No. 46 Catherine Monson, FASTSIGNS

Welcome to the 2022 Power 50 list, which ranks the most influential people in the industry.

Catherine Monson

FastSigns CEO stats

Monson, a longtime franchise advocate and natural-born leader, is willing to go the extra mile for her franchisees – once even appearing in rocker garb in an episode of Undercover Boss. And she continues to make strides for FASTSIGNS and the other companies under the Propelled Brands umbrella. In fact, last year FASTSIGNS saw record growth – reporting more than $600 million in revenue – thanks to would-be entrepreneurs’ growing interest in the franchise model and Monson’s astute guidance. Still, lower scores from both her Power 50 peers and the industry caused her to drop 17 places on this year’s list. And while Monson has limited visibility within the promotional products industry, she’s a visible face of the franchising world, including a recent stint as chair of the International Franchise Association and a go-to interview for both the mainstream and business media.
