Graeme has extensive experience in business, ranging from high-end corporate management to successful business ownership. After being a client of LINK business himself, he decided to become a broker, bringing with him 30 years of business knowledge.
In Graeme’s words –
“Buying or selling a business is one of the most important decisions in your life and having been there myself my aim is to achieve the best result for my client and make the process as stress free as possible”
Graeme was at ‘the coal face' for many years, making the tough decisions, bearing the risk, seeing the rewards, and ultimately growing his business into a nationwide wholesaler and importer with international business connections. As he has been in the same position as many of our clients, he understands how important this process is to a business owner, as well as the intricacies and nuances that come with such a transaction.
Prior to becoming a business owner, Graeme began his career as an Accountant in a Christchurch CA firm. From there he developed his skills in the corporate world, becoming a Financial Controller for New Zealand and overseas companies. His ability to think strategically was keenly recognised and he is noted for his strengths in strategic planning, financial control, and systems development.
To LINK he brings a broad, in-depth knowledge of business operations complemented by a keen financial mind, and a strong desire to help his clients. He has a well-rounded skill set and considerable knowledge in business development, financial management, business appraisal, due diligence, change management and business restructuring. First and foremost, Graeme has been where many of you are now.
Married to Roz, they have 2 adult children. When not working, Graeme enjoys cycling, rugby, reading, travel and the occasional round of golf.
