Dennis George brings nearly 30 years of entrepreneurial experience to CBI. Dennis has an unusually strong ability to identify business growth opportunities. He’s a sharp numbers guy, but also is a keen-listening, straight-talking person who inspires trust and confidence with the people around him.
In the 1970s, Dennis and his wife Sue bought a small, New England-based wholesale fish market. “Fixer-upper” was an understatement for the condition of that business, but they determined a restaurant would be a good add-on venture. Several years, a major renovation - and a few gray hairs – later, the Georges were steering a highly profitable destination seafood restaurant that served 1,100 meals on peak days.
When it came time to exit his business, Dennis chose CBI to lead the sale. Always stringent about offering the highest levels of customer service, Dennis found CBI was the only company that matched his core values. The match was so good, that CBI soon invited Dennis to join the company!
Dennis is an excellent judge of character; a trait that has served him well when hiring staff for the restaurant, and today serves CBI in creating solid matches between sellers and buyers. “Customer service has always been my number one priority,” says Dennis. “Here at CBI, I strive to give business owners a relaxed, completely confidential opportunity to market their business.”
Outside of work, Dennis’s passion is drag racing. He and his wife spend much of their free time racing his 1963 Chevy Nova throughout racetracks of New England.
