About Peter Troy
Principal of Seaboard Business Brokers
Peter Troy’s career is a legacy to being a highly experienced and energetic, multiple business owner.
As a graduate of accounting and business administration, Peter commenced his career in the corporate environment as a Sales Manager with Golden Fleece Petroleum. The company soon recognized his abilities in establishing and marketing through major bulk distribution facilities and opening unrepresented territories. Having declined a promotion to State Manager for South Australia, Peter embarked on his own business endeavour growing a large network of service station outlets throughout the Greater Metropolitan region of Melbourne – an $80m enterprise employing 125 staff members.
In 1998 Peter built and operated a $3.2m hospitality “Landmark” in Echuca now known as “The Beechworth Bakery”, which has since encouraged greater tourist visitation to the region.
Additionally, Peter’s recent history as a major beef producer (at times up to 1000 head of cattle), targeting the Japanese feedlots and export market; his operation of two restaurants, are testimony to being able to position a business strategically to the purchaser and to the market place.
Peter’s level of comfort is with clients in the $1 million to $20 million bracket and adopts his own style and approach, through strategically planning the successful union of seller and buyer.
