Canadest Business Broker Inc.
SME brokerage expert
Marc Richard is a Chartered Accountant who obtained his CA designation in 1990. He has had an exceptional career
as a financial controller. He officially joined the CANADEST team in May 2023 as a business broker. Originally from
New Brunswick at UNB, he has always wanted to promote his province by working there. After four years in
Fredericton, Marc decided to come home to the Chaleur region to start his career and raise a family. Being well
established and popular in the region, he has the ideal profile to represent CANADEST in this part of the province.
This exceptional collaborator has held the position of financial controller for several companies in Bathurst. His
ability to coordinate the preparation of financial statements and other business case reports gives him the ability
to assess the financial health of a company. His interest in accounting led him to teach it at the NBCC (New
Brunswick Community College) for a short period, in addition to his work. As a result, Marc has all the skills and
professional ethics required to support CANADEST clients throughout the transaction, during a business transfer.
In addition, his experience and training allow him to have a complete background for the legal, tax and regulatory
aspects related to all types of business transfers, including Mergers and Acquisitions. CANADEST clients, advised
by Marc Richard, benefit from his expertise, which is a guarantee of confidence! Some of these clients are baby
boomers who are looking to sell their business for a well-deserved retirement.
Furthermore, thanks to his involvement throughout his career in numerous associations such as the Bathurst
Chamber of Commerce and one term on council of NBICA, Marc has a in-depth knowledge of the Chaleur region
industry. He is therefore able to identify and propose different business transfer opportunities to clients.
Finally, as a result of the major decisions he has had to make throughout his professional career, Marc has proven
that he has the talent required to manage the challenges that can arise during a transaction process. In addition,
his ability to communicate well allows him to understand the needs of his clients and to lead negotiations to a
successful conclusion. Thus, without a doubt, as a CANADEST business broker, Marc Richard is qualified to
effectively advise the parties involved throughout the negotiation process and reach a positive outcome on both
the buyer and seller sides.
