Transworld Business Advisors Franchise Business 2019 Honors

With more than four decades of experience in business brokering, over 215 of the top Transworld Business Advisors recently gathered together in Florida to recognize star advisors for their achievements and to share the best practices for helping business owners reach their goals.

Richmond, Virginia (RVA) franchise business owner Rupesh Bharad was inducted into the brand's "Hall of Fame" and honored as a member of the Million Dollar Circle and President's Club for the fourth year in a row. Bharad has been a broker with Transworld for six years and has been an instrumental part in the brokering of more than 150 transactions between business sellers and buyers. Bharad was honored by the accolade and thanked the franchise; its parent company, industry titan the United Franchise Group; and his team, which he says his success would not be possible without.

Known for his entrepreneurial energy, Bharad is committed to growing the RVA location and becoming the top business advisor firm in the state. Before he joined the business brokerage franchise, he held executive positions with government agencies and top Wall Street-listed corporations. A mechanical engineer with a Masters in Computer Science, Bharad's experiences have enabled him to establish multiple successful businesses across several states, and he also benefits from the support of his wife Varsha and their two sons.

The brand's RVA location is now the largest business brokerage in the state, with its regional Richmond office having more than ten agents working full-time. Its agents and offices serve several areas in Virginia, including Stafford, Hampton, Arlington and Chesapeake.

Brand President Bill Luce cited the dedication and contributions of Bharad as exemplary and thanked him for his contributions to the brand in his time with them.

This brand, which has 500 brokers across 200 locations worldwide, still has locations available.
