Jim Hyde is an up-and-coming entrepreneur and president of Hyde Enterprises, a Nashville based firm in a multitude of industries.
At only 25 years old, Jim is quickly building a business empire. His ventures include sporting and recreation businesses (Milan Arsenal), executive search and recruiting firms (United Recruiters and MR. Japanese Recruiters), a communications and media management agency (XM Solutions), a fashion merchandising brand (HaberDashered), and his primary focus rests on businesses built around the real estate industry.
This is a result of direct influence from his parents, who exposed him to serial entrepreneurship as early as he can remember. His father, Tom, grew up in a small town in West Tennessee and had aspirations of seeing the world. To fulfill his passion for higher education and global outreach, he began traveling abroad at age 14.
Tom earned degrees in the U.S., Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Tokyo. He met his wife, Yukari, in a quiet town in Japan while teaching English, and together they set out on a mission to change the world. In their 30 years together, they traveled to nearly 100 countries and cultivated relationships with community leaders around the globe, founded a highly successful company consulting with Japanese firms in the establishment of international operations, and developed the Tom and Yukari Hyde Global Scholars Program at their alma maters to grant students in rural towns the opportunity to see the world and inspire them to step beyond their comfort zones.
While building relationships with these international firms, Tom and Yukari began purchasing corporate rentals for executives stationed in the United States. This began their introduction to the real estate industry. Tom passed in May of this year, after an incredibly tough fight with brain cancer. Jim now strives to continue his father's legacy and magnify the Hyde brand.
Since its founding in 1993, Hyde Holdings has evolved from a handful of executive rental properties to a developer and owner of various commercial, industrial, and residential properties throughout the southeastern United States, largely due to Jim’s assistance and vision.
With his sights set on conquering the real estate industry, Jim spearheads an acquisitions firm with an emphasis on elevating Tennessee-based communities by attracting strategic financial partners to invest in his home state via his companies, Hyde Park Financial Partners and RYSE Development.
Projects in the 2019 pipeline include multi-story climate-controlled storage developments, single-family and multi-family housing developments across Tennessee, an entertainment destination for sporting and recreation enthusiasts, and a new state-of-the-art headquarters location.
In addition to his real estate ventures, Jim has assembled a team of industry experts and community leaders to form Hyde Park Title & Escrow. His team will bring a cutting-edge approach to an age-old industry in Middle Tennessee. Jim leads his various organizations in strategic decision-making, business development, and real estate acquisitions.
Known for his unparalleled work ethic, ability to construct and negotiate deals, and enthusiastic vision, Jim expects 2019 to be his firm’s biggest year to date.
Jim earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, with a focus in finance, from Middle Tennessee State University and maintains his roots within the community. When not engaged in daily business activities, Jim values time with his family and friends above all else, passionately enjoys traveling with a goal of 10 new countries each year, adrenaline rush experiences, and evaluating new business opportunities.
