Brett Hickman

Realizing your dream of owning your own business can be a daunting endeavor.  Most people do not have years to research the thousands of different franchise opportunities, nor can they afford to make a mistake by buying the wrong one.  Brett has a true passion for guiding people through this challenging process.  He will help you to identify exceptional franchise opportunities, perform the appropriate due diligence, and insure that you select the perfect business that is compatible with your interests, skills, motivations, and goals.

A graduate of the UNC-W Cameron School of Business, Brett spent the next 25 years of his life experiencing tremendous success across multiple industries as a business professional.  With 12 years of experience in telecommunications, he experienced the largest overhaul of telecommunications law in history in a very exciting time where new markets opened for many new emerging companies, several of which he was a part of.  Brett spent the next 14 years in the exciting medical and medical device field.  He worked for several venture capital start-up companies and was instrumental in successfully opening and developing new markets with cutting edge products and therapies that are used to diagnose and treat vascular disease, arterial disease, and breast cancer.

Today, Brett uses his knowledge, experience, and resources to be the bridge that helps to connect entrepreneurs nationwide to their piece of the American dream.  He now resides in beautiful Wilmington, NC with his son Connor.  When not working, Brett can be found on the golf course, in the gym, on the beach, or on a boat.  You can contact Brett by phone directly at (919) 623-1882 or by email at
