Merchant Business Brokers are thrilled to be recognised as a finalist in two categories in the 2017 Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards.
From renowned digital innovators to providers of market-leading technologies, well-established manufacturers and accounting firms, the Lake Macquarie Business Awards continue to highlight and celebrate the talents and expertise of businesses and individuals flourishing within the City.
Business Growth Centre Chairman, Gavin Hanrahan, said he was delighted with the variety and quality of entries received across all categories
“The 2017 Finalists are a true reflection of the diversity and quality of businesses within our City. In its sixth year, the Awards continue to demonstrate the strength of Lake Macquarie’s business sector. To be selected as an Awards finalist is a valuable recognition of a business’ accomplishments so all finalists should be extremely proud of this achievement”, he said.
As finalist in the Excellence in Digital Technology category, the team at Merchant Business Brokers were pleased with the nomination and proud to be contending against world class product developers and innovators.
Co-founded by Shane Fox and Ian Jones in September 2016, Merchant Business Brokers use a highly advanced and innovative technology platform to make the complex process of buying and selling a business become much more straightforward, timely and achievable.
“We use great technology that focuses on the needs of our clients. We use digital business cards supplied through My Data Card, as well as an industry first software which provides a better transactional experience for buyers and sellers. It provides confidentiality for the seller and great easy access to information for the buyer,” Ian said.
The team were also thrilled to be recognised in the Excellence in New Business category, as they had worked hard to establish a successful and sustainable business model.
“For us it’s not just about listing and selling any business – we’re about relationships and delivering a sale that both parties are happy with,” Shane said. “We are a relationship based business thriving on referrals and word of mouth recommendations. Therefore our mandate is to ensure all parties in the transaction realise that our passion, commitment and sincerity are why deals get done professionally.”
Merchant Business Brokers is a member of the Australian Institute of Business Brokers (AIBB), the national governing body for their industry. The team are multi award winning business brokers with over 30 years of combined experience in all aspects of business sales, franchise sales, mergers and acquisitions.
Winners will be announced at the Awards Gala Dinner on Saturday, July 22 at Belmont 16s.
