About Us

BizPlacements.com is a Business Brokerage and Placements website dedicated to helping people buy, sell and improve small businesses and franchises.  It embraces the unique approach and insights of Jay Fenello, company founder, and the other associates, affiliates and consultants who are on our team:

Jay Fenello,
Business Broker, Intermediary

Jay started his career as a computer engineer for IBM, Boca Raton, where he worked on a new product called the IBM PC.  After successfully designing a PC card and its supporting software, he left IBM for a small start-up called Core International.  As one of 13 employees working in an old house, Jay helped that company more than quadruple sales and double in size in less than a year.

That experience taught Jay many lessons, and helped him to recognize his preference for smaller companies.  Soon after, Jay returned to school where he earned an MBA in Entrepreneurship from one of the top programs in the nation.  He has been involved in small businesses and start-ups ever since.

Jay first started in business brokerage in 1995, and has since worked for several brokerage firms, including one of the largest M&A firms in the country. Today, he specializes in helping people buy, sell and improve small businesses and start-ups, especially owner-operated businesses and franchises. 

Jay is a member of the Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors and the Georgia Association of Business Brokers, where he has been repeatedly recognized as one of the top brokers in the state.

Mark Jones,
Franchisee Consultant

Mark A Jones, a native of Atlanta, GA, started his professional career in 1981 in banking. After 7 years as a commercial lender at a local “Big Bank”, he decided it was time to try something different. He was offered a position (Regional Director) to run a Master Franchise for a relatively new franchise concept based in Atlanta. Even though he knew nothing about franchising and realized it was going to be a “learn as you go” process; he jumped in with both feet. Fifteen years later, Mark and his team were creating new support programs for over 300 active franchisees and he had helped create one of the top franchise systems in the country.

Today, Mark is helping potential business owners sift through the overwhelming number of franchise choices, to find one that’s right for you.

Randy Trotter, Broker
Franchisor Consultant

Randy’s professional experience includes the successful launch of a retail pet store franchise, as well as an ongoing role in franchise development, sales, and marketing for several local and national franchise chains.  He holds a real estate Brokers license in the State of Georgia, and is active in several commercial real estate firms as well.

Today, Randy is helping business owners and franchisors expand their brand through franchising, area development, site selection, store layout, etc.
