Paul Dyson, office leasing specialist at Colliers International, has won the Commercial and Industrial Salesperson of the Year title at the REINZ 2012 Awards for Excellence, held at the Viaduct Events Centre last week.
Dyson, who is regularly Colliers International’s top New Zealand producer and who has also been named the company’s top office leasing broker in the Asia Pacific region on a number of occasions, was involved in the completion of a number of major Auckland lease deals over the year to March 31 2012 which helped secure the award. These included:
• ANZ signing up to 17,700m2 in the ANZ Centre, 23-29 Albert St
• Hesketh Henry taking 2000m2 in the PWC Tower, 188 Quay St
• 5,355m2 leased to NZTE and ATEED at 139 Quay St
• Inland Revenue taking 1,500m2 at 650 Great South Road, Greenlane
• Regus and SFO signing up to 2,133m2 at 21 Queen St
• 1,705m2 leased to Fairfax at Central Park, Greenlane.
Dyson has specialised in corporate office leasing since joining Colliers International in 1989, focusing largely on tenant representation work. He has worked in both Wellington and Auckland.
He has strong relationships with offshore multinationals as well as major New Zealand corporate and government clients, generating ongoing repeat business. He has concluded leasing deals for the likes of Datacom, Goodman, Deloitte, Fonterra, Johnson & Johnson, KiwiRail, Willis, SKM, Toyota, Southern Cross, WHK and Korda Mentha.
Charles Cooper, Colliers International’s Auckland managing director, said Dyson’s award is a “tremendous achievement”.
“We are very proud to have a Colliers International broker win this prestigious recognition from REINZ. To come out on top against strong competition from many other commercial real estate professionals around the country is testament to Paul’s ability to foster and nurture strong relationships with his clients.”
The REINZ 2012 Awards for Excellence judges considered unconditional deals between 1 April 2011 and 31 March 2012 in deciding the awards, which were based on highest gross commission.
