Beach Patrol: the People Who Make Miami
President, Ferrari Maserati of Fort Lauderdale. Hot wheels: Originally from Great Neck, Long Island, Hayim grew up surrounded by cars—his father is a Mercedes-Benz enthusiast who eventually acquired Mercedes-Benz of Massapequa. Speed freak: Previously employed as an attorney in Manhattan, Hayim has always had an affinity for all things fast. “I’m a sports-car enthusiast and often host track events and challenge races. Everything comes from racing—the fast-paced environment, the work ethic, the desire to win.” You are what you drive: His daily wheels of choice are domestic—as in a Chevy pickup. Seriously. “One of the beauties of this business is that I can take something home whenever I want to—the cars are beautiful works of art and a pleasure to drive. But I love my truck and can drive up and down 95 and don’t have to worry about door dings or scratches, stuff like that. It’s nice to be understated sometimes.” —Bobby Killgore
