Ray White New Zealand has expanded its leadership bench with the appointment of Daniel Coulson as Chief Operating Officer.
Mr Coulson has more than a decade of experience in the real estate industry as a salesperson, auctioneer and national business manager.
Mr Coulson has also been acknowledged as the leading auctioneer in both New Zealand and Australasia.
Mr Coulson said he was excited by the ambitions and leadership of the business, and looked forward to supporting the business owners of Ray White New Zealand.
“The group has grown continually over the last period and it is great that I am able to join the business as part of that growth ambition,” he said.
Ray White New Zealand now has 177 offices in its network that turnover more than $12 billion worth of sales, with a growing national property management portfolio that has now close to 18,000 properties.
Ray White New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Carey Smith said the growth of the group continued to provide confidence for members to invest in their businesses to grow their market share and deliver outstanding service in each of the transactions they undertake.
“Our growth has accelerated in the last two years with Ray White Leaders in the Wellington and Lower North Island region joining the company together with the now Ray White Austar Group in West Auckland,” Mr Smith said.
“We expect our growth to continue over the next number of years, which is part of the reason why we have sought to have the very best person as our Chief Operating Officer to support this growth.”
Mr Smith said Mr Coulson’s deep industry knowledge and enthusiastic approach to the business will align strongly with the trajectory the company is expected to achieve.
“The top businesses in the Ray White Group are the top business in the industry, and Daniel will be providing strategic and business planning support around each of our business owners growing ambition to produce better outcomes,” he said.
