Job Description: 

"Murphy Business & Financial is an international business brokerage company, focusing on main street and middle market business transactions. The firm has 175 offices nationally; The Utah branch has two offices along the Wasatch front.

Personally, I am the Managing Partner for the state of Utah and a graduate of Brigham Young University and the Harvard Business School.
I am looking for an “Excel whiz” to assist us in developing an Excel spreadsheet for the storage and manipulation of data concerning a large number of prospective investors.

We receive data on potential investors in about 6 or 8 fields that we want to record (as easily and efficiently as possible) as well as have a way to filter the data for searching purposes.  For instance, if we were to choose two fields (location and size of investment), we would want to search for all of the investors seeking an investment in northern Utah with an enterprise value in excess of $5,000,000.  The program would then provide us a list of the potential investors meeting both of those criteria.

Ideally, we would also have a means of uploading data received from investors into this spreadsheet rather than having to re-enter everything by hand.

This is a one-time project, but might lead to additional projects as we upgrade our data manipulation capabilities."
