FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 17, 2018 –(Vancouver, British Columbia) – Amanda Reale of Pacific M&A Business Brokers Ltd. is the recipient of the Chairman’s Circle Award given out by the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) during its annual conference in New Orleans on May 4. The Chairman’s Circle Award recognizes those who closed one or more business deals amounting to $3 million and above in total purchase price during the 2017 calendar year.

“As the only international association for business brokers, it’s important for the IBBA to recognize individuals like Amanda who are worldwide leaders in this industry and who display the high standards of skill and excellence that the IBBA promotes,” said Warren Burkholder, IBBA Board Chair, “This award lets sellers and buyers know they are working with one of the industry’s top performers.”

The IBBA is the world’s premier organization operating exclusively for professionals and firms engaged in business brokerage. The Member Excellence Awards Gala that the IBBA puts on during their annual conference gives winners the recognition they deserve for their achievements, while also giving their IBBA colleagues the opportunity to engage with them and learn from their experience.

Amanda Reale joined Pacific M&A and Business Brokers Ltd. in 2011 with a long history of business ownership and development.

Schooled as an educator at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, Amanda left the discipline early on 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 three 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-screening company with a focus on wholesale printing of textiles, 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 skilled, mentorship, and a fair amount of sweat equity.

Amanda has achieved the professional designation of Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) and is a member in good standing of the International Business Brokers Association. She is the Past President of IBBA Canada and has served on the Board of Directors since 2012 – promoting the professional integrity of brokered transactions. She holds a current Commercial Real Estate License in British Columbia.
