Aida appoints new CEO

Carr has gained wide experience in general and marketing management and has more than 18 years' experience in the financial service sector and property market, with specialised experience in developing distribution and sales networks in South Africa and the continent.

And he is passionate about sales and marketing. "It is an integral aspect of our industry and much energy will be spent in this key area to position Aida National Franchises for the way forward. Also important will be the training of staff, and the distribution network."

Half a century of service excellence has resulted in Aida becoming a trusted and loved SA brand, Carr says. "Aida is at the forefront of real estate in South Africa and its vision is to set a dynamic trend within the real estate industry while creating sustainable welfare for all its stakeholders."

Neville McIntyre, CEO of Aida's holding company Jigsaw, says that with Carr's skills in strategic planning, establishing distribution networks and developing broker networks, as well as media relations and marketing, Aida is entering a new era of excellence.

"Young is a great acquisition and asset, not only for Aida, but also for the Jigsaw group."
