Business ownership runs in the family
Andrew Rogerson has been owning and operating businesses in Australia and California since he was 27 years old, and it’s hardly surprising, since entrepreneurship is part of his family legacy: Andrew’s grandfather provided the financing for two of his sons to establish the Kenworth truck franchise in Australia back in the 1950s – a franchise that was so successful that Kenworth bought it back from the brothers in the early seventies.
Andrew has followed in his family’s footsteps, buying an international travel agency in 1983 and selling it two years later for 250% of its original price. Andrew went on to buy and manage two retail office equipment/furniture stores in Melbourne, Australia and finally bought a Los Angeles-based wholesale travel and tourism company that had an annual turnover of over $10 million.
Andrew and his wife Anne later became the owners of an executive suites business in Fair Oaks, California. Anne was able to operate this business while Andrew served as an outsourced program manager at the Roseville campus of Hewlett-Packard, managing a team of 42 employees, deploying a new global call center and support team that included web developers, technical writers, and trainers.
As you can see by this lengthy resume, Andrew is well-versed in every aspect of business ownership. This includes finding a good investment to purchase to growing the business rapidly, and finally selling it at a much higher price.
Over time, Andrew has worked to expand his knowledge and qualifications to make every aspect of the buying and selling process easier. Having the business experience and education, he was able to finally open his own firm to advise and guide other entrepreneurs through this complex process. This business experience and education allow Andrew to advise his clients on and execute a broad range of services including selling or buying a business, business valuations, transaction analysis, machinery and equipment appraisals, and consulting on buying a franchise and franchise ownership.
