Ian Salter

Ian Salter has been a professional business broker with Benchmark Business Sales & Valuations since late 2005 where he came across from a corporate management position. He was responsible in 2010 for establishing the specialist ‘Franchise Sales Division’ of Benchmark, where he now leads the franchise team. This role sees Ian managing and mentoring a sales team of specialist franchise business brokers. Being a 100% performance based broker, Ian is absolutely dedicated to producing the best results possible for his many clients through application of hard-earned knowledge and insistence upon the upholding of professional standards.

As a senior broker Ian is generous with his time towards assisting, training and mentoring other brokers along the way and works hard and applies his knowledge, dedication and professionalism to achieve the best results.

Ian has spent years building professional relationships and actively interacts with a network of other professionals such as Solicitors, Bank Managers, Accountants, Development Managers, State Managers, National Managers and Master Franchisors to not only assist with the sale process for either a buyer or seller, but also to stay in touch with any industry changes. Ian also sells non-franchised businesses such as; Transport, Retail, Wholesale, Commercial Property, Manufacturing and even a Private Island to name a few…and has had success in all of these industries. He is happy to speak with any buyer or seller and assist them through the process of buying or selling a franchise or non-franchise business.

Away from work Ian enjoys music – (both as a professional musician and music listener). Ian and his family are involved in many sporting pursuits including martial arts, basketball, rugby league and his love for personal health and fitness.
