Donald J. Hayes, President
Mr. Hayes began his NCL career in 1974. Throughout his 30 plus years working in the hotel liquidation industry he has sold it all, from antiques, collectibles and high end hotel furniture, fixtures and equipment, to the opposite extreme. Every project he orchestrated met or exceeded the clients’ expectations. He has worked for many well-known hospitality moguls including providing repeated liquidation service to Donald Trump. Mr. Hayes has more than a few stories to tell about customers that were willing to take extreme measures in order to obtain a piece of hotel history, memorabilia, or simply a bargain. He has seen many lines wrapped around skyscrapers waiting to gain admittance to NCL liquidation sales such as the St. Regis, Sands Hotel and Casino, Picadilly Hotel (well known for the Helen Hayes Theatre) and other landmark hotels throughout the United States and beyond. Every hotel liquidation is a challenge he gladly accepts. Adhering to construction schedules, budget limitation, nor Mother Nature, will stop him from achieving his goal: Selling it “to the walls”. This may mean selling marble off of the walls, selling palm trees planted on the hotel grounds, and selling carpet off of the floors. You name it, Mr. Hayes has probably sold it. His experience allows him to lead his professional liquidation staff toward success which equals client satisfaction.
