Amanda has joined Pacific Business Brokers Inc. after spending a decade as a senior manager in the premium brand auto industry. She was recently recruited to develop an independent lending and credit department for Mercedes-Benz-Canada Inc. where she was responsible for developing and maintaining a successful retail finance and lease portfolios. Here she received a National Marketing Award for the highest market penetration of contractual fulfillment. Schooled as an educator at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, Amanda left the discipline in favour of a career in business development. Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs fostered her spirit to explore companies that made sound financial sense and had reasonably instant cash flow. Her first foray into business was an automotive interior trim franchise with a large BC territory. Six years later, she successfully sub-franchised the business interests into 3 separate territories and subsequently sold all three to new operators. At the same time and inspired to satisfy her creative nature, she began the development of a silk-screen company with a focus on wholesale printing of garments and other printable substrates. Later she added a small to medium format sign manufacturing shop under a separate division – both operated for 15 years in the Vancouver area. After 22 years, her start-up companies are now sold and continue to operate under new ownership – a satisfying testament to some acquired skill, mentorship and a fair amount of sweat equity. Going forward, she is passionate about deploying a plan to assist and guide others as they transition to or from business ownership, develop or consolidate exit strategies by providing exceptional financial analysis and professional services made available exclusively through the Pacific Business Brokers proprietary systems with an overall goal of establishing an organic match for motivated buyers and sellers. A Certified Business Intermediary role provides an opportunity to demonstrate a corporate culture that provides business owners, partners, employees and individuals with a sense of self direction (autonomy), a sense of achievement (mastery), and one that makes a difference (purposeful contribution). Amanda has been an independent professional dancer in Vancouver, teaches ballroom dancing, enjoys sailing, tennis, skiing, biking and yoga
