Screened on Channel 4, her personal and professional journey unfolded as she investigated the inner workings of FASTSIGNS centres in the USA as part of the hit CBS hit series.
“Going undercover allowed me to step into the shoes of our employees and franchise partners to better learn the ins and outs of what makes our company successful, as well as where there is room for improvement. We’ve solidified FASTSIGNS as the top sign and graphics company in the country, but that doesn’t mean we stop looking for ways to evolve and improve,” said Catherine Monson.” This was a once in a lifetime opportunity to share my story and hopefully inspire young women to become leaders in their industries, despite any obstacles they have had in their lives.”
Each week, "Undercover Boss" follows a different executive as they leave the comfort of their office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their companies. While working alongside their employees, they see the effects their decisions have on others, where the problems lie within their organisations and get an up-close look at both the good and the bad while discovering and rewarding the unsung heroes who make their companies run.
Commented Garth Allison, UK managing director of FASTSIGNS: “Watching the programme was fascinating. I was impressed with Catherine’s approach and attitude and it was great to see her on UK television! Catherine has had a very positive impact on the business since she was appointed in 2009 helping us to focus and build on core strengths. The programme showed just how inspirational she is.”
