Meet Jason Hayes, our latest New Zealand Business Manager

Our recently appointed New Zealand Business Manager, Jason Hayes, joins TracPlus with over 25 years of experience in aviation and sales, both here in Aotearoa and across the Tasman in Australia.

Jason’s professional career has seen him swing back and forth between the two industries, building an impressive and comprehensive portfolio as a pilot, flight instructor, and sales expert.

His initial foray into the world of aviation began back in 1995, working with the team at Marlborough Helicopters as a loader driver before diving into sales as an advertising rep for the Radio Network. From there he moved back into aviation, coming aboard with the Stanbroke Pastoral Company as a cattle mustering pilot at Queensland’s Rocklands Station.

After this stint in Australia, Jason joined innovative New Zealand manufacturing company Donaghys, where he honed his skills in territory sales management as the area representative for Nelson, Marlborough, Coromandel, and the West Coast — and then it was back into aviation as a pilot for Mountain Air, where he undertook public transport, freight, and charter flights in BN2 Islanders and Piper Aztec aircraft.

Following his time at Mountain Air, Jason bolstered his aviation resume with roles at Qantas-Jetconnect and Air New Zealand, accumulating invaluable experience as a First Officer, Training Captain, and Ground Instructor.

This unique blend of aviation experience and sales expertise makes Jason the ideal person to represent TracPlus on the New Zealand stage. In his capacity as Business Manager, he’ll oversee TracPlus’ growth within our home country, providing world-leading tracking and communication solutions for clients working in the air, sea, and land spaces.
