Financial services business broker and former AMP executive Paul Tynan has launched a new business and will take on the position of chief executive officer.
Connect ASEAN is a new business initiative launched by Mr Tynan to connect small to medium-size enterprises across the Asia-Pacific region, advising them on joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions and partnership opportunities.
Headquartered in Melbourne, the business will focus primarily on the financial and professional services markets, as does Mr Tynan’s existing business Connect Financial Services Brokers.
“Connect ASEAN has been structured to provide a bridge linking Australian SMEs to fellow overseas business owners and commercial opportunities,” Mr Tynan said.
“Furthermore, SMEs invariably turn to their accountant, banker or lawyer for guidance and they are able to obtain expert advice to address taxation and compliance-related issues.
“Connect ASEAN will also work with these professional service providers to support the overseas commercial objectives of their small and medium [sized] business owner clients,” he said.
