Owner of VR Business Office in Hawaii Comments on State of Economy

VR in Hawaii has seen a dramatic increase in the number of business listings due to the growing confidence in the marketplace. As a result, VR Owner in Hawaii, Matthew DiGeronimo has hired more staff to handle all the new clients at his office he says according to a recent article in the Hawaii Business Magazine.

“In May last year, we had five clients. In April 2011, we had 75 clients,” said DiGeronimo in the article, where he added that 81 percent of the local establishments for sale are represented by his VR location. Among those the clients that came in that month, 15 were buyers.

Having seen the potential that VR has to offer, DiGeronimo became the owner of the three franchise locations in Hawaii in helping entrepreneurs through the process of buying and selling of businesses.

“We had zero buyers a year ago,” DiGeronimo says. “We’ve had to hire three more people to serve clients who are not only looking to buy a business, but sell a business, because they are approaching retirement age, or moving back to the Mainland to care for elderly parents, as well as to just be closer to adult children.”

Hints of falling prices and other trends have added to the confidence in the business sales market in Hawaii. On BizBuySell, for example, the number of businesses listed for sale in the state skyrocketed from 2 in the first quarter of 2010 to 108 in the first quarter of this year.

VR has office locations available in many locations. To see a full list of available VR Franchise locations, please visit the VR Global Headquarters website

News Release: Newt Gingrich Appoints Peter King To Jobs And Prosperity Task Force Advisory Board

News Release from VR Business Franchise for VR Business Sales / Mergers & Acquisitions

Former Speaker of the House and General Chairman of American Solutions Newt Gingrich, announced today the appointment of Peter King  C.E.O. of VR Business Sales / Mergers & Acquisitions to the Advisory Board of his Jobs and Prosperity Task Force.

The Jobs and Prosperity Task Force is comprised of the most successful and accomplished business leaders and entrepreneurs in America. The Task Force will focus on Jobs Here, Jobs Now, Jobs First.

“We’ve given Washington a chance. It has failed miserably and proven to be so inept at job creation that our unemployment, as President Obama himself said, ‘blew past’ his own administration’s projection of 8%. Now it’s time for people who know how to create jobs and prosperity, know what it means to stick to a budget and make payroll – the business leaders of this country – to come together and clean up this mess,” Gingrich said.

“We’re thrilled to have Mr. King on board as we begin the work to get this economy back on track.”

As VR Business Sales / Mergers & Acquisitions’ dynamic and intuitive business leader, Peter King began his career on Bay Street in Toronto with one of Canada’s oldest Merger’s and Acquisitions firms. Upon relocating in 1989 to the United States, King was an instrumental part of Canada’s largest real estate company’s American development plans. His responsibilities included all legal and franchise arena’s through which his franchising intrigue arose. From 1994 until his acquisition of VR in 1999, King returned to his roots, joining one of America’s largest investment banks on Wall St. servicing large institutional clients.

In 1999,  Mr. King saw an opportunity that would bring the professionalism and service of investment banking to the small and mid-size business owner: acquiring VR Business Sales / Mergers & Acquisitions. Today Peter King and his partner and President, JoAnn Lombardi, lead VR Business Sales / Mergers & Acquisitions as the only full-time global network of Professional Business Intermediaries.

As an Advisory Board Member, Mr. King will be invited to Washington for strategy sessions and events where he will discuss ways of turning American economic problems around with tried, true and battle-tested solutions that have been used in successful businesses.

Mr. King’s company, VR Business Sales / Mergers & Acquisitions, is the innovative leader in the sale of privately held companies.
Celebrating 30 years as the world’s only network of full time professional business intermediaries, VR Business Sales addresses the needs of small and midsize businesses.  VR Business Sales is a company committed to a diversified menu of business advocate services, with more than 125 locations, and consequently has proven its value to business clients across the country and around the globe.  VR’s global headquarters are located at One East Broward Blvd., Suite 1500, Fort Lauderdale Florida.
