Ray White is pleased to announce the appointment of Ben Thomson as our Business Performance Manager – Property Management.
Ben has property management in his blood, with a family involvement in the industry dating back to 1990, including a sibling currently involved in innovative new property management training software in Australia.
After several years of using his finance and accounting skills in a local manufacturing firm, Ben turned his sights to Property Management when an opportunity became available in one of South Auckland’s leading agencies. One of his first tasks was to implement new software and systems, and this desire to be at the leading edge of technology has carried through his six years in the industry.
Ben has been involved in commercial property management as well as apartment and residential management, with several years spent leading a team of 12 in managing over 1,100 properties in South and East Auckland. Under his guidance, the office won various regional and national awards for letting, individual and team property management.
Carey Smith, Chief Executive of Ray White New Zealand, said “Ben’s appointment is a reflection of the continued growth that Ray White New Zealand has achieved in property management. Today our business manages 16,500 properties through 87 of our real estate offices. Property management is an important service that Ray White offers to landlords and tenants and Ben’s appointment will continue to assist us in our adoption of best practice for our company.”
