Neal Isaacs, Owner: Neal Isaacs was a shark diver at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg, TN before moving to the Triangle in 2003 to open a business. In 2008 he sold it to focus on business to business sales and began his master's degree at NC State’s Jenkin’s College of Management. After acquiring his MBA in Marketing and Innovation, he enjoyed a media sales career with Time Warner Cable Media where he helped companies of all sizes. From Fortune 500 firms like Wendy’s and Subway to the local pizza shop, Neal consulted firm owners on their marketing and advertising challenges. Eventually, his entrepreneurial itch drove him back into business ownership. After realizing he was born to be a business broker, he partnered with VR; the firm that been selling businesses since he was born.
