Jon joins the Professionals in Rotorua with a wealth of business experience and looks forward to a long and successful career with the company.
Jon was born in South Africa and grew up in Durban on the east coast. He spent his work life there in companies who marketed products to industry, more specifically in the building sector. He has had many senior roles, including a marketing directorship. He held national positions which included one where he was required to set up a market for a product in Europe from a zero base.
Parallel with his business career, after he graduated with a Marketing Diploma, he lectured marketing and related subjects at various business schools part-time, including a stint at the Sharks Rugby Academy.
Jon and his partner Pam came to New Zealand in 2009 and he has enjoyed senior roles, before deciding to change career and sell real estate. “I cannot think of a more marketing focused career than selling property. You are dealing with people’s hard earned cash and the happiness of a family unit. To help a family or young couple settle into a home of their dreams is really rewarding.”
Jon has a sporting background and has played Indoor Cricket at an international level. He won the silver medal at the Indoor Cricket Masters World Cup in 2008. He still enjoys playing corporate cricket and plays golf off a single figure handicap.
He is also a keen photographer and restores old furniture in his spare time.
Jon encourages clients to come and talk to him before considering buying or selling your home. “You’ll get no spin, just straight talk and my very best effort. And with the considerable experience throughout the Professionals Rotorua as back up, you will be more than satisfied with your decision to talk to us.”
