About Jeff Bracegirdle

For more than 30 years Jeff Bracegirdle has practiced as a Chartered Accountant. Self-employed for all of his professional career, the breadth and depth of his experience extends to owning businesses in the rural, horticultural, travel and equine sectors, plus accounting and consultancy practices. In fact there are not many types of businesses that he has not been involved with at some level.

After studying law and commerce at Otago University, Jeff has continued to acquire a large number of ancillary qualifications from many courses over the years. He has been involved with a broad spectrum of organizations, social and professional, from the Australian Institute of Management through to service clubs such as Lions International etc.

As a member of the Australian Institute of Management he was certified by the Australian State Government (Queensland) as a senior business mentor/coach of Federal and State Government sponsored businesses (with turnovers of up to $20m). He understands small to medium sized businesses and has specialized in both domestic and international taxation, insolvency, due diligence and management consulting, to businesses around the world. This range of experience enables him to understand your business sale or purchase from both a practical and theoretical perspective. He can empathize with his clients and successfully assist them to navigate their way through the sale or purchase process.

From a field of several hundred applicants, Jeff was chosen to participate in the adaptation of a highly specialized European business profit programme purchased for $1M plus by the Australian State and Federal Governments. When this programme was awarded to a Brisbane based management consulting company (whose clients included Australia Post). Jeff headed the very successful business coaching division associated with the programme. They were able to boast a success rate of improving medium sized businesses ($2M - $20M p.a. turnover) by a factor of 35% or more improvement on previous years' EBIT - quite an achievement for some businesses! His role of qualifying businesses for the programme and coaching them through a 12 month period covered all facets - from sales and marketing to financial, production, process engineering etc.

Having thoroughly explored the field of accounting, and been involved in acquiring a family business, it was time for Jeff to bring all that experience together doing what he enjoys most: sales and marketing. His extensive experience is available to benefit you in the sale or purchase process.

It will come as no surprise that when Jeff entered the field of business broking he went to the top. Initially to the top of the New Zealand company (comprising approx. 40 business brokers) and subsequently once joining RE/MAX he soared to even greater heights nationally and internationally.

Jeff's team of business brokers over recent years has been ranked as the No 1 Team Internationally (outside the USA and Canada) for the sale of commercial property and / or businesses (based on sales commissions earned) for successive calendar years. Jeff himself has an array of personal awards and client testimonials even the envy of some of his past team members let alone competitors. Jeff has a keen international focus and a diverse and sound international business network of contacts with whom he works when selling businesses that may suit small to large investors looking to migrate to New Zealand or indeed returning simply kiwis returning home. His focus is on ensuring success for one and all involved and ensuring that the legacy left by the vendors of these businesses becomes the destiny of the new owners. And, of course, his success and that of his team reflects such outcomes for all concerned. Contact Jeff on 021 546 569 or, email [email protected]
