Andreoli has been with the Fitness Franchisor Since 2018
D1 Training, a popular fitness concept, promoted Emily Andreoli to vice president of finance and accounting. In addition to providing strategic financial planning, managing the budgeting process, and overseeing accounting operations, she will bring a female perspective as the first woman to be promoted to D1’s leadership team. Since joining the fitness franchisor in 2018, Andreoli has served as director of accounting for the home office and D1 Cool Springs. She also helped facilitate D1’s investment from Princeton Equity Group, a private equity firm that invests in franchise companies, including the International Franchise Professionals Group and Ellie Mental Health.
“In a fast-growing company, the day-to-day often takes precedence. In this role, I am most excited to focus attention on projects that are going to help drive us forward. Our partnership with Princeton Equity Group has empowered us all to think bigger and outside the box for opportunities and solutions,” Andreoli said.
Andreoli got her start in franchising with D1 when there were 17 franchise locations open. While she has seen the company change and grow, the leadership team’s awareness and agility have remained consistent. In addition to Andreoli, Matt Toy was recently announced as D1’s vice president of marketing.
Chief operating officer Dan Murphy is thrilled to have Andreoli take on this role. “Emily’s exceptional track record and unwavering commitment have consistently elevated our brand. Emily was the natural choice to join our leadership team. With her expertise and remarkable leadership skills, we look forward to the contributions she will make in establishing D1 as one of the names in the training and fitness industry.” Andreoli’s favorite part of franchising is getting to know franchisees and seeing them through their journey.
Love of Music and Fitness
Prior to joining D1, she worked in the music business and saw how effective business management enabled independent artists to create music. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Carolina with dual degrees in Finance and Sport & Entertainment Management. She then moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music and worked as a tour accountant for multiple international touring acts. She eventually earned a Masters of Accounting at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Women and Leadership
Throughout her time at D1, Andreoli has met amazing women at all levels of the business, from coaching athletes who own and lead franchise locations to others who work at the home office team. “It means so much to me to represent them and be a voice on our leadership team.”
She advises female entrepreneurs looking to get into leadership positions to become a student of their business. Additionally, she urges women to listen to and understand the strengths, challenges, and opportunities of all aspects of the company. “Developing a strong grasp of the big picture makes team members valuable outside of their functional area,” she added.
