Jey was granted a VR Business Brokers franchise in Edmonton in 2010, after spending 8 years in Commercial Banking and Corporate Finance. Jey recognized the need for VR after identifying an unmet need for small and mid-size companies when it comes to buying, selling, and valuations. Since that time, Jey has assisted business owners in Alberta execute acquisitions, the sale of their businesses, and joint-ventures, often helping them effect transactions with buyers from across Canada and the United States.

Since 2010, Jey has personally transacted over 55 companies in Alberta in a number of industries including, manufacturing, medical, service, oil and gas, transportation, retail, etc.

During his free time, Jey has always been an active member of the community as well. He has volunteered for a number of organizations including The United Way, The Canadian Bankers Association and Junior Achievement. Presently Jey is also the Director of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) Canadian Chapter, an international association of people and firms engaged in business brokerage and mergers and acquisitions.

Jey is also fluent in three languages (English, Malay, and Tamil) and value diversity. He graduated from the University of Alberta with a BA in Psychology and completed the MBA program from Athabasca University-Center for Innovative Management. In addition, he has also completed the Canadian Securities Course and holds a Real Estate Brokers’ license through the Real Estate Council of Alberta. Jey also earned his Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) designation, which is a prestigious designation exclusive to the IBBA that identifies experienced and dedicated business brokers. It is awarded to intermediaries who have proven professional excellence through verified education as well as an exemplary commitment to our industry. Jey can be reached via email at jey@vralta.com
