For 2017 Chris celebrates 21 years service as a business broker. In many ways he has come “full circle” - joining South Island Business Brokers as a broker in 1996, then in 2002 moving to owning and operating the firm, and later in 2007 joining the firm in with LINK until 2017 - when Chris on sold the firm to remain as a broker.
Chris has – to date mind you! - overseen more than 500 business transactions with a cumulative market value of over $150m covering a multitude of industries, negotiations, and contract terms - bringing satisfying results for both buyers and sellers.
Prior careers were in banking services - primarily investment advisory/insurance, building products at a corporate marketing level, premium capital equipment sales – in civil engineering / forestry / construction sectors, and trade engineering in the manufacturing / materials handling sector - as a very young lad! Career pursuits took Chris on a jobs and life’s experience journey to other cities, returning to Christchurch in 1993.
Chris sees his “tools of trade” on offer to you as his accumulated professional qualifications, experience, knowledge, skills and insights acquired from diverse business environments. Yes Chris is adaptable, appreciative, and enthusiastic about bringing confidence to the sale management process.
Away from the office Chris enjoys family life, travel and motorcycling including racing – well until the leathers shrunk! Would like to travel more and ride more – but precious time can be limited when you own a business – hey that needs an edit……
If you are contemplating buying or selling call Chris for a confidential discussion about developing options for you.
