General Manager  
Vale Geoff Watson 11/1/1949 - 06/04/2024 
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved General Manager, Geoff Watson. Geoff was an integral part of Wollermann Business Brokers for 25 years, contributing immensely to our team and leaving a lasting impact on our organisation. His dedication, expertise, and warm personality touched the lives of everyone he worked with. Geoff will be profoundly missed by family,  colleagues, clients, and friends alike. Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time. 
Geoff began his brokering career in 1998 in suburban Melbourne, establishing the business brokering arm of a small real estate agency, but was soon identified by Wollermann Business Brokers and then recruited by them in April 1999. 
During the 1980s, Geoff assisted many business migrants settle into Australia, providing financial and investment advice. In a ten-year period he assisted a range of business owners to understand their businesses better, particularly in the financial arena, by adopting a simple and understandable approach to business and financial management. 
A career as a business broker has enabled him to combine a very broad background in banking and finance with business development, sales, organizational systems and people skills to achieve a high level of success. Geoff’s overall experience, communication skills and ability to quickly grasp new concepts enables him to gain the trust of those with whom he deals and which places him in a sound position to assist business owners within a wide range of industries. 
Geoff was invited to become the General Manager of Wollermann Business Brokers in December 2005, a new position created to drive the strategic growth of the company. 
The strategy moving forward will be to further develop Wollermann Corporate Brokers specialty market i.e. the sale of larger businesses ($1M plus) for which they have developed a fine reputation, as well as other project work.  Geoff brings with him extensive experience in the business sales arena, and has been personally responsible for many sales in excess of $1M, to both private and public companies.
