About Me

Thomas M. Matesic, is currently a licensed Business/Real Estate Broker with over 30 years of entrepreneurial experience. Thomas has founded nine companies, two of which were international and acquired an additional three. He successfully operated and eventually sold each of them. He has a reputation as a turnaround specialist as all the acquisitions were in need of restructuring and new management. Thomas is an international entrepreneur with extensive business development, marketing and management experience. He began his career in the automotive business. He was appointed the youngest Datsun dealer in the United States at the time of his appointment as a dealer at age 27. It was this business that propelled him on the road of acquiring a background in small business including real estate development, mergers and acquisitions, assisting in divestures. In all transactions he has a proven record as a businessman with extensive knowledge in general entrepreneurship. Thomas’s goal is to provide the highest level of professionalism and confidentiality, while minimizing the time and stress typically experienced in negotiating the transfer of ownership of privately held companies. His background as an entrepreneur/operator gives him valuable insight into the inner workings of small business. His focus is small to mid-market transactions in various industries, specializing in automotive related, publishing, manufacturing, franchise opportunities and general retail companies. Thomas has developed many business models in a variety of businesses as he has operated many companies with the title of President/CEO. Most of the companies he owned and operated had little in common regarding product or services. He has extensive knowledge in the automotive field including brokering dealership transfers and assisting current owners with business enhancement consulting. Thomas has personally held 14 different automobile franchises spanning over 20 years as a new car dealer principal. In addition to the automotive business Thomas has owned companies in the fields of insurance, publishing, oil and real estate development. He has extensive international business experience as a result of founding companies outside the United States. Thomas has a background involving business development, start-up operations with a specialty in marketing and sales. The skills he gained throughout his extensive career were gained in a hands on manner and has enabled him to provide insight into each transaction that would be missed by most professionals who had not been involved as an owner, seller or transferee. Thomas has served on several bank board of directors and currently serves as Vice Chairman on the Board of Directors of the Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation located in Fort Pierce, Florida. He is a current instrument rated pilot who enjoys blue water fishing, scuba diving and international travel.
