Mr. Guinn will develop and oversee the Company’s growing international component and establish new franchise and licensing partners around the world.
“Rarely does an opportunity come around that so perfectly fits one’s background and interests as does Worldwide Business Brokers fit mine,” said Guinn,. “As democracy and the rule of law spreads around the world, the demand for the company’s service and franchise – the executive business of selling businesses – is exploding. We expect significant expansion in our current international operations as well as the establishment of several new beach heads.”
“Alan’s contacts and experience in the international market are exactly the components we have been looking for to address the demand for our services outside the United States,” said Norman Gaither, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Business Brokers. “We expect that his involvement will significantly impact our expansion rates overseas.”
