Belinda Packer

Business Sales Specialist

 

Hi, my name is Belinda Packer. I have over 20 years of experience as a business owner and in the Financial Planning sector.

I can use my past experience to achieve the best possible outcome for buyers and sellers as I have owned multiple businesses in different industries ranging from Transport Services, Hospitality, Online Sales, Manufacturing, Construction Services, Consulting, Business Advisory, and now Business Sales specialising in Mergers and Acquisitions. I learned very early as a business owner how to buy a business, increase the profits then sell and then roll the capital gains into another business. This is where my love for the business grew as I was learning about a new business with each acquisition. The accounts of each business fascinated me and that’s when I decided to get my Financial Planning degree to understand why financial statements and balance sheets are very important for any successful business.

I am well versed in understanding the intricacies involved in a sale in all business sectors, and I have the drive and commitment to get the sale done. This is how I have built a large network of both buyers and sellers and a repeat client base and how my specialised field of Mergers and Acquisitions developed. My attention to detail and clever strategies in structuring a sale has created long-lasting relationships with my clients.

 

I am an active speaker at Women in Business events supporting and sharing my knowledge around strategic ideas of what people need to know when starting a business. I provide a professional service to my clients and I am not your average business broker.

 

If you are looking to sell or preparing to sell your business, my experience, my commitment to our systems are for you!
