Background & Experience
Before joining NAI Commercial, John owned and operated a number of businesses in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland area. In 1997 he joined a family business in the collateral recovery, court order enforcement and financial services sector. By 2006 John was the president and co-owner of the company, after literally working his way from the bottom up through all of its different positions. And that’s when John started thinking about and planning for his exit strategy. In 2010, John successfully sold the company and today, as part of the mergers and acquisitions department at NAI, John helps other business owners to do the same.
“My business advisor played a critical role when it came to planning, negotiating and reaching my sale goals,” says John. “I am a business advisor at NAI today, because if I was to sell my business all over again, this is where I would list it. NAI has the procedures, strategies and types of advisors that I would want working for me so I could be assured my sale would be as successful as possible.”
John specializes in selling companies located in the GVRD, which generate annual revenues between $1M and $10M.
