Jason T. Ayers Biography
For the past twenty years, Jason has been one of the top producing search consultants for agencies and brands in Asia.
Jason is a graduate of Southeast Missouri State University, where he majored in Marketing and Mass Communications. He held a variety of sales and marketing jobs in Chicago, St. Louis and Tokyo before entering the executive search field in the early nineties at Tokyo's largest search firm.
As a top producing consultant and manager, he built their Consumer, Media and Agency Practice from scratch into one of the firm's largest revenue contributors. It was during this early success that Jason realized there was a need for a cross-boarder, specialist Marketing and Communications search firm in Asia. He moved from Tokyo to Honolulu in 2001 and founded his first company, AdMark Asia Group. He led their rapid growth and established offices in Honolulu, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong with a research center in Manila.
In 2006 he sold the company to the management team he had recruited.
After taking a year off for film school, Jason started Sector Five with the vision of creating a truly 'global', specialist, Marketing and Communications – search consultancy. An entrepreneur at heart, Jason still spends 90% of his day working on deals.
He has hired and trained dozens of recruiters, including some of the most successful in Asia- many of which are now themselves recruitment industry leaders within
executive search and as internal Human Resources executives.
Jason is an aspiring Ukulele player and claims to have a selective semi-photographic memory.
