WEST PALM BEACH, FL – June 28, 2018 – Recently, 71 business brokers from around the world took on a big challenge: earning the prestigious Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) certification from the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA), the gold standard in the business brokerage industry. Among the designees to receive certification are six Transworld Business Advisors including: Rupesh Bharad of Richmond, Virginia; Robert Cunio of San Diego Central, California; John DeVries of Port St. Lucie, Florida; Marshall Pollock of San Diego North, California; Jason Poot of Columbus, Ohio; and Austin Zhao of Houston, Texas. Receiving CBI designation speaks to the brokers’ professionalism and the top-notch caliber of franchisees that Transworld Business Advisors engages.
“The CBI is a clear indicator of knowledge and experience, achieving it demonstrates a personal commitment to excellence and a dedication to the craft of being a business broker,” said Jeff Snell, IBBA Credentialing Committee Chair and 2019 IBBA Board Chair-Elect. “We encourage business sellers and buyers to look for the CBI designation when selecting a business broker to work with,” added Snell.
At Transworld, a member of United Franchise Group (UFG), Business Advisors are considered professional specialists that help businessmen and women navigate and smooth the landscape of selling their businesses. Achieving CBI certification is only granted to individuals who complete required course work, pass an extensive competency exam, and agree to uphold the IBBA’s professional standards and code of ethics.
“Receiving certification from the IBBA is proof that our franchisees are top in the world, which makes them invaluable assets for companies looking to divest or grow, both domestically and internationally,” said Bill Luce, President of Transworld Business Advisors, “It speaks volumes of Transworld’s reputation, our agents are top class professionals, recognizing the complexity of unique challenges of the business world.”
