Prior to joining Benchmark in 2004 Michael had worked in financial management for 24 years – as a Qualified Accountant, in businesses ranging from small through to large companies. From his studies in accountancy, and the acquired knowledge that Michael has gained over many years, Michael is ideally placed to add value to the buying and selling process for his clients with franchise businesses for sale. Michael is a “general” broker with a broad knowledge of many business types – something which is quite rare. This broad skill base has enabled Michael to be one of the most consistent brokers working in the industry.
Michael is always near the top of the list of high achieving brokers in Benchmark. He has been a finalist in the Business Broker of the Year award on several occasions. Michael has also owned his own business – in Management Rights, as well as running businesses for Australian and international companies. Michael is a fully licensed Real Estate Agent, and is a member of the AIBB (Australian Institute of Business Brokers), and a long-time member of the REIQ. He is also a Fellow of the IPA (Institute of Public Accountants).
