BoxUnion Holdings, the parent company to Title Boxing Club and BoxUnion, has announced Justin Ghadery as its chief operating officer.

Ghadery most recently served as senior vice president of global operations for Gold’s Gym International. Prior to that, he worked at 24 Hour Fitness for nearly eight years, working his way up from the front desk and a personal trainer to district manager.

BoxUnion Holdings recently acquired the 163-unit franchisor Title Boxing Club as well as its digital platform, Title Boxing Club On Demand.

In his first year as chief operating officer, Ghadery’s primary initiatives will focus on driving consistency across the franchisee system while providing support as he rolls out a franchisee-centric service model.

“We are honored that Justin is joining our growing team,” said BoxUnion Holdings’ CEO Todd Wadler. “At every step, he’s made in his professional career, he has quickly excelled and risen up the ranks of leadership. Justin exemplifies our core values and brings a track record of operational excellence to lead our team. At a time when it has never been more important to empower small business owners, these traits are also complemented with a partnership mentality. His passion for people, teamwork, technology, and combat sports make him uniquely qualified to drive our business to new heights and position our franchisees for success in a post-COVID-19 world.”

“I am thrilled to join BoxUnion Holdings for several reasons,” said Ghadery. “Title Boxing Club and BoxUnion are both strong brands with compelling product offerings. I am focused on bringing technology, automation and a data-driven culture to the company. I am equally committed to delivering a high-quality franchisee service model that is coupled with operational excellence to push our brands to the next level. I look forward to further developing our team as well as bringing in top-tier talent to execute our vision. With Todd and Felicia (Felicia Alexander, chief revenue officer and co-founder) at the helm. This is the team I want to be by my side in the ring.”

Ghadery is based in Dallas, TX and will oversee leadership teams at both BoxUnion and Title Boxing Club.
