A Business Broker who won't drop the ball!
Merv has a lifetime of experience in business and sales.
Today, he works as an effective business broker for aviation, industrial, service, and maintenance businesses worth more than $1 million. Merv understands that finding the right buyer for a business is about more than just the price tag. It’s about making connections and finding buyers that are prepared to pay what the business is worth and to continue growing the business.
Before Merv made his mark in the hyper-competitive world of business brokers, he had already found success in several different business ventures. His first business experience came as an act of rebellion against his father. Merv was determined to show his father that he was meant for business.
As a teenager, he bought firecrackers and sold them for a profit by going door-to-door in his neighbourhood. Merv’s father tried to divert his son by getting him involved in the family coaching business.
But, Merv’s ambition and need to make deals couldn’t be denied. He left the family business and went through a series of careers that included everything from selling industrial scales to working as a marine engineer aboard a supertanker.
No matter what he was doing, Merv was relentless. He was always learning and always eager to try and help people.
Merv soon grew tired of life on the sea. He started a family and settled in gorgeous Auckland. Here, Merv started a successful real estate business. He enjoyed helping families, but something was still missing.
He discovered that his true calling was as a business broker.
Merv joined LINK, eager to do great work. He used his diverse sales and career background to connect with the business community. His engineering experience made him a natural fit for industrial, aviation, and other mechanical businesses.
His own business experience allowed him to help his clients get top dollar.
