Brenda is originally from Dallas and graduated from H. Grady Spruce in Dallas Texas. She attended college at Central Texas College in Killeen, TX.
Brenda has known Art since day one since she is his mother, giving her a very small edge. She makes sure that whenever a group comes in for training, they are well taken care of and feel a part of the CGI family. She also makes sure that anything and everything office is in tip top shape everyday.
Brenda has been married to her husband Art Coley, Sr for 50 years, has 3 grown children and 7 beautiful grandchildren.
Lennon has years of franchising experience (it happens by default when you are Art’s eldest son). Prior to joining the CGI Franchise team, Lennon worked as the Regional Director of Sales spanning Texas and Louisiana for a Top 100 brand. He gained valuable experience in data analysis, trend recognition, coaching, training, and leading a team. He also got front line experience in franchise units and with franchise owners, understanding the power of small business ownership and the effect it can have on people’s lives.
With CGI, he is humbled at the opportunity to give more people the opportunity to experience small business ownership through franchising by providing our brand partners the ability to recruit high-quality individuals to join their networks.
Lennon lives in Temple with his partner Meagan. In August 2020, he brought his first child (and Art’s first grandchild) into the world, Rylie Jean Coley.
