The Clyth MacLeod International Scholarship

Clyth MacLeod was a man well respected and recognized in New Zealand, Australia and the USA as a true gentleman and the guru, the go to, for anything related to business sales. Clyth commenced his company, Clyth MacLeod Business Sale,s in the 1970’s. He went on to oversee more than 9,000 settled sales from his team in the years that followed. As a Lifetime CBI, Clyth exemplified excellence in our profession and in this way, his legacy will continue to live on.

Impeccable in dress, non negotiable on sound ethics and with a genuine hunger for learning, Clyth was always at the front of the room learning from others and so often at the front of the room teaching others. “Invest in yourself” was his motto. He never stopped learning and he kept on giving.

In Clyth’s honour, this scholarship is for IBBA Members located outside of the United States who have 0-2 years of business brokerage experience.
