Hank Beresin - First Street Business BrokersHank Beresin, Managing Director

“Partnering with clients, helping them to develop strategies that meet their ever-changing needs.” That has always been Hank’s professional expertise. Hank spent most of his career in sales and marketing. He has a long track record of success leading sales and customer service teams at companies of all sizes such as Hallmark Cards, William Arthur, Company C and Preserve Brands.  Whether opening new stores, building an acquisition plan, creating additional revenue streams, implementing cutting edge technology or introducing new products, Hank consistently enabled clients to achieve their business goals.

Hank has always known the ins and outs of retail and wholesale business. His father was a business broker, and after years in sales and marketing, Hank finally realized that he wanted to work more closely with business owners.

Hank has a B.A. from the University of Vermont in Psychology and an MBA from Iona College. He serves on the Speaker Committee for the 2015, 2016 & 2017 TEDX Piscataqua River, is a member of the Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, and was on the Advisory Board for The National Stationery Show for a three year term. He believes strongly in supporting local establishments, and he can often be found at the Music Hall, Seacoast Rep or the Farmers Market.

Originally from Philadelphia, Hank moved North to Portsmouth, New Hampshire in 2005. He lives there with his wife and three children. They love the Seacoast lifestyle and take advantage of the great outdoors as often as possible. Hank enjoys spending quality time with his wife and three children – running around to the kids’ various sporting events, skiing and hiking in New England, surfing and playing at the beach in Rye, and eating out at their favorite local restaurants. “The people and establishments of this community mean a lot to me,” says Hank. “As a business broker, I can be a part of exciting new changes here, helping clients realize their dreams.”
