Article excerpt

Name: Tim Edwards.

Position: Business broker.

With: Savvy Business Sales, Mooloolaba.

I have been in the industry: Just a short while, but my business ownership experience and sales and negotiation skills are good grounding.

And with this office: I had been planning the move to Savvy for a long time.

I came to the Sunshine Coast in: December 2001.

From? London, England.

Because? It was time for a change. We were expecting our son and my wife wanted to be near her family. I'm just grateful that they lived on the Sunshine Coast.

The most exciting part of my life: I imagine being born must have been a blast, but otherwise it was running my internet-related IT company during the dot com period.

My choice of movies to see would be? The Road, adapted from the Cormack McCarthy novel of the same name.

When it comes to television, I love: Anything that doesn't involve reality TV competitions or police-based dramas.
