Our Founder and CEO, Gary Valkenburg, was a restaurant/retail trainer for nearly 20 years. As Gary spent time traveling the world opening restaurants and training staff, he realized there was really no control or consistency of locations at a head office level. Each location and every General Manager was doing whatever they wanted and not following company policies and standards. That is where Gary came up with the idea and need for World Manager. He set out to provide the most user-friendly platform in the market for both employees and administrators. The goal was to create a platform to allow every CEO to train, track and communicate with employees, plus control company compliance nationally and globally.


When I was a waiter, it was VIP Treatment for all my guests. If I gave good service, I knew I was going to make great tips. When I started World Manager, it became VIP treatment for all my Brands. I believe if you give outstanding service, your Brands (customers) will rarely leave you. I was so tired of the industry sales techniques and the long-term contracts, I set out to break the traditions and be the training industry’s biggest market disruptor. 13 years after World Manager was created, we still have an outstanding 94% retention rate for all our Brands that have ever joined the World Manager Community, and every one of those brands are on no-fixed term agreements, and can leave anytime.
