Job Description
Mergers & Acquisitions Intermediary (DFW Area)
Are you 50 plus years old, recently laid off or nervous about your future job security, do you come from a business executive position and worried about someone younger and cheaper replacing you? Would you like to be your own boss in a business where age is a plus? Do you want control over your future? Do you want to continue making a nice income? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to call us.

LINK Business ( is a full service business brokerage/M&A firm that has immediate opportunity for self-motivated and entrepreneurial individual(s) to pursue a challenging and rewarding career as a business broker/M&A advisor. We are looking for seasoned sales professionals or executive mangers. This new local Dallas office is part of one of World's oldest network of business sales and acquisition intermediaries is looking to build its business broker/M&A team with a few self-motivated associates to find sellers and buyers of companies and arrange the transactions between them. This work draws upon the individual's capabilities in sales, marketing, financial and operational analysis, negotiations, financing strategy and business management. The position requires persistence, a highly-organized approach and a consistently positive attitude. You must have high ethical and professional standards, be a confident, be a creative problem-solver, a team player and real networker. Although the position requires both sales/marketing and financial skills, THE QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE SALESPERSON/MANAGER ARE THE MOST CRITICAL ONES FOR SUCCESS.

The position offered is that of an Independent Contractor. You are in business on your own. THIS IS A COMMISSION-ONLY POSITION in which you can expect to earn $100,000 to $150,000+ per year after your first full year, but there is no upside limit, no ceiling on your net earnings which depend, to a large extent, on your own efforts and results. Veteran, highly effective business brokers/M&A team members can earn more than $250,000 annually and we had one reach $980,000. However, the business brokerage/M&A business is a complex, extended process with a long sales cycle, so a new intermediary should be prepared to go 6 months or more before collecting that first commission check.

This is not a job or career path for everyone but it is challenging, very interesting work that can be highly rewarding for the right person. We typically do not deal with start-up or other early-stage businesses. Our primary focus is on facilitating the sales of established businesses that have some history of profitability. You will interact with entrepreneurial people and take part in the operational and financial analysis of many types of businesses.

When selecting new members for our team we look for the traditional indicators of success:
Maturity -- a minimum of 20 years of business experience. AGE is a plus because we are dealing with mature people.
Exceptional initiative -- a well-organized, well-planned, self-starter.
Creativity -- ability to innovate and develop solutions for complex business problems.
Selling experience -- proven ability to prospect for, qualify and close.
Background -- sales, strategic or financial consulting, or business management experience.
Business ownership -- past entrepreneurial and management experience, a plus.
Education -- college degree is a plus, MBA, JD or CPA, a bigger plus.
Teamwork -- ability to work well with team mates to solve complex problems.

Because we occasionally sell the business's real estate and the Texas law for business/M&A brokers, you will be required to possess a Texas Real Estate license. (A Real Estate Broker's license is not necessary - a Sales Agent license is adequate). However, one can pursue this TREC license at the same time we provide our basic training to being a successful broker. Our training draws upon the organization's 30 years plus of success in facilitating thousands of transfer transactions from our network of offices located throughout the world. After initial training we provide ongoing coaching and a broad range of support.

With several growth industries moving toward consolidation and millions of baby boomers approaching retirement age, we are now in the initial stage of what is expected to be the greatest wave of business transfers in U.S. history. NOW is the time to enter this industry and be at the peak of your game as more and more businesses are ready to come to market. All of the above being said, this is a fun & interesting job.

We are an equal opportunity enterprise and value diversity for our team.
