Scot Cockroft


Scot Cockroft has been called the Guru of selling businesses. He launched into the business brokerage industry in Dallas in 2004 after selling his own business with a Dallas business broker. Learn more about that story here. During the time he owned VR Business Brokers Dallas and HBG Advisors he has sold and been involved in selling over 500 businesses.

As president of HBG Advisors Inc. Scot has a long track record of selling all types of businesses from Manufacturing, Service, Distribution, Patents and Oil and Gas companies when others have failed.

Scot is known for his outside the box thinking– looking to fill a need in the business sales industry that no one else saw or knew how to capitalize on. “I believe that the reason I have been so successful selling large and small companies is because I truly understand the business owner.”  This began from growing up with a grand father and father both owning and operating a small business. As well, Scot has started and/or owned himself numerous businesses. From eighth grade model airplane business, five different e-commerce businesses to niche janitorial company. Having this insight as well as selling his own business he understands the emotions and the perspective of business owners.

Scot’s passion to serve entrepreneurial business owners is unparalleled. He consistently provides clients with creative and innovative methods to market and sell their businesses. In fact, some of these methods for marketing and business have changed the way businesses go to market nationwide. He is committed to a “different” type of business brokerage firm, one that is NOT about a sales pitch but, rather, results! In short, a business brokerage and M&A firm that is committed to performance-based compensation. Scot believes in these principles as well as a candid honesty with clients. His candid style often takes buyers and sellers by surprise, but is often what assures successful connections between the two.

An experienced entrepreneur and business owner, Scot purchased the Dallas VR Business Brokers office after the profitable sale of his own company. Since 2004, the office that Scot purchased became (for the first time) the #1 business brokerage office in Texas, ranking # 1 each year as well as a top office nationwide. The office that Scot lead actually became a top 5 business brokerage office in the USA during his time. Ranking #1 in the USA in 2008. In addition, Scot Cockroft has been a Top-10 producing owner worldwide every year since 2004. In 2007, Scot was named the Most Valuable Intermediary in the World. In 2010, named Deal Maker of the Year by the Dallas Business Journal.

In 2014, Scot Cockroft exited VR Business Brokers and launched HBG Advisors.  Scot’s passion is to continue building on the business he created.  It is Scot’s belief that clients will now be even better served without the restrictions of a franchise.  HBG Is now a thriving business broker office in Dallas providing passionate and innovative representation for business owners seeking to sell their business as well as prospective business buyers needing consultation.  While we currently sell businesses accross Dallas Fort Worth, Houston, Midland and all of Texas and Oklahoma we do plan on opening an office in Houston and Oklahoma city to compliment the Dallas office soon.
