Harcourts New Zealand welcomes new GM Business Sales
Harcourts Group Limited are delighted to announce that Jayson Hayde has been appointed to the role of General Manager, Business Sales for NAI Harcourts North Shore.
Jayson who joined NAI Harcourts in February this year as the Franchise and Hospitality Business Sales Specialist, is no stranger to the world of business.
Over his 30-year career, he and his family have held an extremely successful McDonald’s franchise, he has developed a forward-thinking movie franchise called Movie 24 and then had a long and successful stint with Columbus Coffee where he opened the flagship store in Takapuna. During his time with Columbus Coffee, he was responsible for training new franchisees and in-store orientations. During this tenure, he was also a founding member of the franchise advisory council and was also closely involved with the strategic direction of the brand.
Jayson’s journey into commercial and real estate was an easily navigated path. After a discussion with Martin Cooper (Managing Director, Harcourts Cooper & Co.), and Jayson sharing his vision of disrupting the business sales market, the wheels were set in motion.
“The power of NAI Harcourts is that we are small enough to act local but large enough to act global. While we are here to be sales people, there is an opportunity to educate buyers and sellers on creating wins and making the process work for them. I really hopeful that my experience in strategic business development will lend to B2B sales and uncovering of these opportunities daily,” he says.
Tony Kidd, NZ General Manager NAI Harcourts says, “Jayson is someone I have had the greatest of respect for and am delighted to see him take this new role within NAI Harcourts. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Jayson in his new capacity. He brings experience, enthusiasm and vision to the role.”
When asked what he hoped to achieve in the role, Jayson replied, “in this position I would like to be able to make the NAI Harcourts North Shore the agency of choice when buying or selling a business.”
