There are perhaps few people internationally with more experience in business broking than Aaron Toresen.
Since the early 2000’s he played the lead role in driving the growth of LINK as major shareholder and Managing Director of the group. He took what was once a boutique NZ business brokerage and grew it into an international franchise, with over 500 brokers in five countries.
Aaron stepped down from his 15 year role as Managing Director in 2021 to concentrate full time on selling businesses which is his happy place. As well as outright sales, Aaron has considerable experienced in complex earn out structures, mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, management buy outs and other structured sales. A proven board executive and manager he has extensive experience in frontline leadership of sales, marketing, customer success, professional services, customer services and finance teams.
He has been a franchisee, franchisor and salesperson, providing an unparalleled understanding of the needs of both businesses and clients, from the ground up. He has also been CEO of two Commercial Real Estate companies in New Zealand, LJ Hooker Commercial and Knight Frank.
Outside the office, Aaron enjoys time in the hills around New Zealand as an avid deer stalker or working on improving his wing foiling skills in the Waitemata.
