President & Managing Broker
Nick has owned and operated several retail, service, and distribution companies in his life time. He is the current owner of Business Brokers Inc and Atlanta Business Advisors. Mr. Modares worked for Sunbelt Business Brokers in Atlanta as a business broker for a few years prior to establishing Business Brokers, Inc. Along the way Nick has accumulated enormous education along with practical experience and insight into what it takes to start-up, own operate, finance, merge, sell, and acquire privately held companies ranging in size from very small to multi-national, million dollar operations. Consequently, he found the transition into business brokerage to be a natural one. As a business intermediary and consultant, Nick has been involved in sales, service, mergers and acquisitions ranging in price from fifty thousand dollars to over fifteen million dollars since 1988.
After receiving his Masters Degree in Engineering Management (MBA of Engineering) and continued education courses from the University of Evansville, Indiana and Purdue University towards his PhD, Nick pursued an engineering and project management career working for and with multinational companies like Bechtel, Daniel International, and Ahlstrom Kamyer Incorporated. Nick gained experience in engineering, construction, labor relations, project management, contract negotiations, operations, sales and marketing with exposure to food processing, manufacturing and power/energy production from CFB Cogen to coal, gas and nuclear power plants.
His community involvement includes serving as treasurer of Atlanta Sister Cities Commission under Atlanta City Hall Charter (visit www.atlantaga.gov and then select “international”). Nick is also Chairman, since 1995, of Atlanta-Bucharest Sister Cities Committee, a non-profit organization (www.sister-cities.org). Nick has been the membership committee chair for Georgia Association of Business Brokers (GABB). He has been actively involved in civic community duties within his neighborhood in Roswell as a treasurer, volunteer, coach, fundraiser, and charity work activist. In 2006 Nick adopted Jones Road in Roswell, GA to get his kids involved in volunteer work. To give back to the community they will clean and remove trash, debris from both sides of that road for a year.
Nick presently serves on the Board of Directors of several companies providing marketing and organizational growth expertise. He is a licensed broker in Georgia and Florida, as well as a member of the Georgia Association of Business Brokers (www.GABB.org) and the International Business Brokers Association (www.IBBA.org). Nick is with 3 children. He and his family have lived in Roswell, Georgia since 1990.
