FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Haig Partners LLC, the leading buy-sell advisory firm to owners of higher-value dealerships, is pleased to announce the addition of Jayson Crouch, a respected leader in automotive retail finance, as Managing Director. Jayson will help lead the firm’s growth on the West Coast.
Before joining Haig Partners, Jayson served as the Senior Vice President of National Accounts at Bank of America, focusing on the Top 150 dealership groups across the Western United States. His commercial banking experience also includes overseeing the remarketing and customer loyalty strategies for luxury automotive brands for JPMorgan Chase.
Prior to becoming a banker, Jayson had over ten years of experience in ever-increasing roles with Toyota Financial Services. During his tenure, he obtained an insider's view of many of the nation's premier dealerships and gained firsthand experience in what makes Toyota one of the most valued brands in auto retail. He has a unique perspective on the strength of the Toyota franchise model, which is invaluable to owners of Toyota dealerships considering a sale and buyers eager to add Toyota to their portfolios of stores.
Alan Haig, President of Haig Partners, said, "I am thrilled to welcome Jayson as our new Managing Director. His impressive background and extensive expertise in the automotive industry, particularly his more than ten years at Toyota Financial, will significantly bolster our ability to provide unparalleled guidance to owners of higher-value dealerships in key markets across the western part of the United States. He has invaluable insights into what makes Toyota such a desirable franchise and has built trusted relationships with hundreds of Toyota and Lexus dealers. Haig Partners has a proven track record of facilitating the sale of some of the highest-value Toyota stores, including two record-breaking deals with John Elway's Crown Toyota and, more recently, Al Hendrickson Toyota.
“Haig Partners has consistently demonstrated its commitment to delivering unmatched expertise and guidance throughout the Southwest and West Coast. The team at Haig Partners has been involved in the purchase or sale of more than 200 dealerships in those regions. Jayson joining our already strong team will further elevate our ability to maximize the value of our client's businesses when they are ready to sell.”
Jayson Crouch, Managing Director, said, "Joining Haig Partners is an exciting destination for my professional journey. I have always aligned myself with leading companies such as Toyota, JP Morgan and Bank of America. Haig Partners has established a national reputation for being honest and highly effective in advising their clients to help them maximize the value of their dealerships. These traits resonate with my core values. Collaborating with Alan Haig and the rest of the team at Haig Partners while bringing my experience and robust network is a perfect synergy. I am proud to establish the West Coast office for Haig Partners."
