Tanya Robertson announced as interim CEO of the FCA

The Franchise Council of Australia (FCA) today announced well-known Franchise expert Tanya Robertson as interim CEO effective immediately. This follows the departure of Matthew Monaghan from the organisation. Matthew has decided to leave for personal reasons and finished with the FCA today.


Ms Robertson takes on the role with an unparalleled track record of involvement in the FCA and Franchising.  She has been an integral part of FCA’s impact for almost 16 years as part of the Victorian Committee and over five years as a Board Director and Victorian State Chapter President.


“Tanya Robertson is a leader in our sector as a result of over 25 years managing high-performance teams in Australia’s prominent franchises. She is a very safe pair of hands and brings significant and proven expertise to the table at this important time, particularly in the lead-up to NFC in Cairns 19-21 May.”

“Importantly, Tanya knows the FCA team and our members well so this is the ideal outcome while we find the right person to lead the FCA through the next stage.” FCA Chair, Brendan Green


“This role has been a privilege and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the many, many passionate and successful franchisors and franchisees who are part of this incredible sector.” Matthew Monaghan, outgoing CEO
