First National Appoints New Zealand Manager

Real estate company First National has appointed Maryanne Sheehy as the company's New Zealand Manager.

Chair Bob Brereton says Ms Sheehy, who begins her role this week, brings extensive experience in the real estate and property industry in both New Zealand and Australia.

“Maryanne brings a strong understanding of the industry from the management and business ownership perspective, as well as excellent leadership qualities. We’re delighted Maryanne has decided to join First National, because we know that her leadership style, passion for real estate and deep understanding of what it takes to succeed in our industry is going to add a great deal to our business,” Mr Brereton says.

Ms Sheehy has previously worked as a business development manager and franchise services manager for a national real estate franchise. In Australia, she was business development manager before establishing her own successful franchise business for the same company. She’s also worked with private property companies.

“I’m looking forward to working with the First National team. They’re a company whose values and way of working I really identify with,” Ms Sheehy says.
