about Ian Salter

Ian Salter …has been with Benchmark Business Sales & Valuations since September 2005 after leaving a corporate management position. He was responsible in 2010 for establishing Benchmarks’ specialist ‘Franchise Sales’ division, where he lead the franchise team for approximately 7 years. This role saw Ian managing and mentoring a sales team of specialist franchise business brokers. In October 2017, Ian stepped out of the franchise division to focus on a new division for Benchmark Business Sales.

Being a 100% performance based broker, means that Ian is absolutely dedicated to producing the best results possible for his many clients through application of hard-earned knowledge, experience and insistence upon the upholding of professional standards.

As a senior broker for Benchmark, Ian is generous with his time towards assisting, training and mentoring other brokers within Benchmark along the way. It’s only through hard work and applying his knowledge, dedication and professionalism that allows him to achieve high results and the best outcomes for his clients.

Ian has spent years building professional relationships and actively interacts with a network of like-minded professionals, such as; Solicitors, Bank Managers, Accountants, Finance Brokers, State Managers, National Managers and Master Franchisors, not only to assist with the sale process for either a buyer or seller, but also to stay in touch with any industry changes. Ian’s business sales have been diverse over the years with sales in; non-franchised businesses i.e. Transport, Retail, Wholesaling, Commercial Property, Home Based, Manufacturing, Mechanical, Demolition & Recycling, Environmental and even a Private Island – to name a few,.…he has had success in all of these industries. He is happy to speak with any buyer or seller and assist them through understanding the process of buying or selling any business.

Away from work Ian enjoys music – (both as a professional musician and listening to music).

Client Testimonials


"Can confidently say the service by Ian Salter is second to none"

“ As an experienced buyer and seller of businesses I have dealt with many business brokers. It is with that background that I can confidently say that the service provided by Ian Salter is second to none. Ian’s attention to detail and genuine care to get the best result for all is unquestionable. This was particularly evidenced when an issue with the business purchase remained unresolved many weeks after settlement, Ian continuously pursued all parties until the matter was resolved. I would have no hesitation recommending Ian Salter to anyone looking to buy or sell a business. ” Regards, S. Sneddon
