I have been a business broker in Newcastle since 2003 and have a genuine passion for small, medium and large business. I love what I do, the diversity of every different business and the people I meet. I always enjoyed economics, business law and marketing through school and further education so it is no wonder I have combined areas of study and interest to find a career in business broking. Having my own firm doing what I love is a great achievement.
I have listed, sold or been involved with businesses up to $20M and covered most industries within the Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle & Hunter Valley Regions and Mid North Coast. Our team has successfully transacted numerous businesses for buyers and sellers from interstate and have been involved with several Merger & Acquisition sales as diversification becomes a part of medium to large business growth and strategy.
As a Director and founder of Merchant Business Brokers with Ian Jones, I am passionate about helping buyers and sellers realise their objectives. Our innovative technology, confidentiality process, marketing reach and extensive experience provides a solid foundation for business owners looking to sell with a confidential, honest, and transparent approach – which is vital to our success and ongoing referrals.
We strive to engage professionally with genuine qualified buyers which helps all parties achieve a mutually beneficial outcome.
Our team are constantly searching for new innovations and ways to improve all aspects of what we do which extends to a work hard and play hard mentality.
We can thoroughly recommend Shane and the team at Merchant Business Brokers. They have been extremely thorough and professional from the first contact. They understand the process and protect business owners from unnecessary interruptions and tyre kickers.
Their contact with both seller and buyer is exceptional.
