Jason is a recent addition to the Waiarapa Colliers Rural and Agribusiness team but is certainly not new to the rural industry nor to sales. As a natural born relationship builder with a passion for the rural community, Jason prides himself on his people skills, his strong negotiation abilities and the exceptional customer service he provides to clients.
Born and bred in the Tararua district, having been bought up on a family farm in Waione, both farming and sales have been a major theme throughout Jason’s career. With 16 years of practical farming experience behind him, including time spent in Dannevirke, Eketahuna and Pahiatua, Jason, along with his wife, Kirsten, leased a farm for ten years which eventually allowed them to purchase this property. For the past 11 years, Jason has worked as a Technical Field Rep for PGG Wrightson, advising clients on animal health, cropping, fertiliser and development plans for farms. During his time with the company, Jason built strong relationships which lead to outstanding sales results, winning numerous awards that recognised his achievements. Jason also spent five years on their national retail advisory group, where he developed and rolled out a national training programme for staff.
Jason’s natural affinity for people combined with his results-orientated drive, has seen Jason excel in his chosen field and build a strong network of contacts across rural Waiarapa along the way. Jason is very involved in the local community through various sporting codes. He was the Club Captain for the Eketahuna rugby club for eight years. Currently he is the Club Captain of Tararua Squash Club and assists co-ordinating a local discussion group. In his spare time, Jason enjoys spending time with his wife and young daughter as well as participating in squash, cricket, golf, hunting and fishing.
Jason has lived in the Tararua district his whole life. The people and the relationships he has formed is what he loves and he is looking forward to using his knowledge of the area, rural expertise and sales skills to help others achieve their goals in life.
