Jennifer Fox Earns Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) Designation

Transworld Business Advisors of Boston is pleased to announce that President, Jennifer Fox has earned the prestigious Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) designation. The CBI, which represents the gold standard in the business brokerage industry, is granted to individuals who complete required course work, pass an extensive competency exam, and agree to uphold the IBBA’s Professional Standards and Code of Ethics.

“Earning the CBI takes dedication to the craft of business brokerage and demonstrates a personal commitment to excellence,” stated Jeff Snell, IBBA Credentialing Committee Chair and 2019 IBBA Chair.  “The CBI is a clear indicator of knowledge and experience, and we encourage business sellers and buyers to look for the CBI designation when selecting a business broker to work with,” added Snell.

Jennifer Fox is President of Transworld Business Advisors of Boston where she oversees marketing and strategic development of the office and successfully does good deals for good people no matter the size. She has received the IBBA Outstanding Performance Award in 2020; has been in the Transworld President Club in 2018, 2019, 2020; and Transworld Million Dollar Circle in 2020.

Jennifer is also currently the Vice President of the IBBA affiliate group, New England Business Association (NEBBA) and board member of Business Brokers Association of New England (BBANE) where she focuses on bringing brokers together to do more deals.  Jennifer’s past experience includes over ten years in the investment management industry with roles focused in business development, transition management, client service, and marketing.


If you are serious about selling your business, Jennifer Fox and her team at Transworld Boston are the best choice. Jen has connections with every top attorney, lender accountant, CPA and business coach in the area and knows how to put together a team that will assist you with the sale or purchase of a business smoothly and efficiently. It’s impressive how she can take a very complicated situation, with a million moving parts and make it so simple. You’re in good hands with Jen! 

Jennifer Fox helped me tremendously over 14 months. After my first deal fell through in month 6, we were able to find a new and significantly better opportunity. That second deal went quite smoothly considering COVID and all the ramifications from the pandemic that challenged the entire process. Jen was fiercely loyal and I always knew she had my back in the long process. It if weren't for her doggedness, I don't think we would have closed the deal in time to get 6 months of SBA loan forgiveness, which would have had a major impact on my transaction. I highly recommend Jennifer and the Transworld team.

As a business broker with expertise in franchise resales and consulting, Jennifer’s depth of knowledge in this specialized area is outstanding. Her contacts are broad and she does not hesitate to work diligently with buyers/sellers to find the best match for them. I am confident that any client I refer to Jennifer will be handled professionally and with a personal touch that makes for a successful outcome.

Jennifer is extremely professional and knowledgeable. No matter how complicated the situation or how many moving parts there are, she will find a solution and make it seem easy. She has a wide network of professional contacts and will work with you to put together a team that will assist with a smooth transition of a business. I am confident that any friend or family member I refer to Jennifer is in good hands.
