Mr. Bocquet will supervise the expanding staff of licensed agents as the company grows its business model of servicing timeshare owners looking for a commission-based solution to selling their timeshares on the resale market.
“As most brokers and agents in the secondary market understand, the ability to network and co-broke with other agents is an extremely important part of the resale process,” said Jason Connolly, Managing Broker, Timeshare Broker Associates. “With Jerome’s extensive network and the relationships he’s built over the past 20 years in the timeshare industry, his experience and knowledge will be crucial as we expand our business and service our growing clientele.”
TBA, which is affiliated with leading online timeshare marketing company BuyaTimeshare.com (http://buyatimeshare.com), will also position Mr. Bocquet as its corporate liaison for industry relations and business development as the firm reaches out to build relationships with key industry executives.
“Through our marketing agreement with TBA, BuyaTimeshare.com works closely with Jason and his team by using our industry-leading internet visibility to help them match owners with buyers. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Jerome and help produce more satisfied timeshare owners,” added Wesley Kogelman, president and CEO, BuyaTimeshare.com.
Mr. Bocquet joins TBA following a highly successful period with Timeshare Broker Services, where he was responsible for leading the licensed sales agents and exceeding sales targets while implementing the policies and procedures of the company. Prior to his time with Timeshare Broker Services, Mr. Bocquet was a sales executive with Marriott Vacation Club and Hilton Grand Vacations Club; also serving as a licensed agent for the GMAC Real Estate Timeshare Division. He has an Accounting Degree from IPF in his native Paris, France, where he also studied Hotel Business and Administration.
“The evolution of the timeshare brokerage business has taken on increased importance following the recession, with more buyers understanding the value and savings that can be obtained on the resale market,” said Mr. Bocquet. “Owners are looking for a safe and consistent method of selling their intervals and I am very excited to be able to connect those buyers and owners as part of the team at TBA.”
