Doug Bishop

Business Broker

A little about my background

Son of a coal miner and one of eight children Doug learnt early on there are no handouts in life and that it required tenacity hard work and honesty to succeed.

Doug has a pragmatic approach and a comprehensive background in business ownership and corporate management. He started in his own business at just 18 when he purchased a retail/wholesale delivery round for then Kent Bakeries in Newmarket. While running this business at night Doug also worked during the day for a family earthmoving and contracting business.

He then moved to the South Island with the family contracting business who were involved in selective logging of native trees, cray-fishing and deer recovery.

Following on from this Doug joined food manufacturers in sales and marketing roles. One of these roles was as Domestic Sales and Export Manager selling foodstuffs throughout New Zealand, Japan, the Pacific and South East Asia. Having succeeded at this he then progressed to positions of general management for some of New Zealand's largest food companies.

Recognising his ability and success Sara Lee an American corporation approached him to establish their brand in NZ throughout the retail and hospitality sectors. This was the impetus needed for the start of a very successful multimillion $ turnover food broking and import company which he ran for 17 years.

Looking for a change, this business was sold in 2005 and he moved to Queenstown, built a house then purchased and ran the Queenstown Airport cafe for three years.

Doug is now into his 5th year as a Business Broker with Barker Business Brokerage and even during Covid and living in Queenstown managed to be placed as one of the top Brokers at Barkers for the 2021 year.

Let Doug carry out a free no obligation appraisal for you on what he thinks your business could sell for in today’s market and if you do decide to list with him you will get the benefit of his hard work, tenacity and honesty to get you the best price he can.
