A.J. Titus Recognized by South Florida Business Journal
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — August 7, 2018 — Forty of the region's most entrepreneurial and influential young leaders from Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties were honored for their outstanding success and contributions to the community at the South Florida Business Journal's annual "40 Under 40" recognition luncheon on August 3 at Jungle Island on Watson Island in Miami.
Among the honorees was A.J. Titus, president of West Palm Beach-based Signarama, a brand member of United Franchise Group (UFG). Named president less than a year ago, Titus succeeded Jim Tatem who held the position for 10 years and is now president of UFG. Titus is a third-generation family president, following in the footsteps of his father Ray, and grandfather Roy, co-founders of Signarama, a company with 800 locations in 60 countries—including Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
The honoree literally grew up in the family business, gaining in-depth knowledge as well as a close perspective of the brand's needs and the needs of franchisees it serves around the world. With the "ground-up" knowledge of operations, Titus is attracting franchisees that are young, driven, and possess the entrepreneurial spirit—men and women that want to create scalable, profitable businesses.
"This is a remarkable group of talented honorees, and to be chosen with them for recognition by the South Florida Business Journal is a distinct honor," says Titus. "Each person chosen is a reflection of what I would call a new wave of entrepreneurs, as they each bring a diverse set of skills and knowledge to the ever-evolving marketplace."
