Get Ahead sparks global expansion with Australian franchisee

The virtual outsourcing agency has opened its first international location in Australia with Taryn Wynne

The virtual outsourcing agency, Get Ahead, has opened its first international location in Australia with its newest franchisee, Taryn Wynne. Wynne will run Get Ahead Australia and New Zealand from her base in Sydney, Australia. 

She has over 25 years of experience in a variety of sectors, and is a qualified cost and management accountant with experience in several industries including consumer products, IT services, agriculture, hospitality and family businesses. Wynne most recently was the head of finance and shared services in the construction industry before deciding to work for herself. 

“I was introduced to Rebecca Newenham at Get Ahead by a mutual friend. I had already recognized the need to help small businesses in Australia and began working on how I could use my business expertise to make a difference,” Taryn says.  

“I appreciate how there are just not enough hours in the day for all the “noise” that goes with owning a business. I am also amazed daily by the people I meet who have the most fantastic skills but who don’t have a channel to use them as they don’t want a big corporate job.  

“I aimed to join those two forces together and after speaking with Rebecca I realized that Get Ahead aligned exactly with that. Partnering with Get Ahead enabled me to benefit from an already established brand and launch into my home territory of Australia and New Zealand.” 

Rebecca and Tara connected strongly and found many commonalities despite being on opposite sides of the planet. Both are passionate about supporting small businesses and freelancers. 

“It’s been a pleasure welcoming new U.K. franchisees over the past few years, but I was aware that there were global opportunities for our business too. When a friend introduced me to Taryn, it felt like a great fit,” said Rebecca Newenham, founder and director of Get Ahead. 

“I know our business is in safe hands with Taryn running our Australian head office. We are now actively looking for new franchisees to run different territories across Australia and New Zealand, as well as talented virtual experts to join her team.” 

2021 has been a strong year for Get Ahead, from opening multiple new franchises in the U.K. to opening its first international location in Australia and New Zealand. The brand has also been shortlisted for a number of awards including the HSBC British Franchise Awards 2021. 

“I continue to be amazed by the tenacity and enthusiasm of my franchisees and I thoroughly enjoy mentoring them all,” said Newenham. 

“With regional directors in Berkshire & North Hants, East Midlands, Leeds, Oxford, Suffolk & Essex, Surrey, West London, Wirral & Cheshire West, York and Harrogate, we are well equipped to provide effective outsourced services to businesses across the U.K. I am excited about this first step of our global journey and looking forward to supporting Taryn as she develops Get Ahead in Australia & New Zealand over the next few months.”
