Ashton Hayward III is a Pensacola real estate broker/developer and a 2010 candidate for mayor of Pensacola.

A Pensacola native, Hayward graduated from Catholic High School and received a Bachelor of Science degree from Florida State University. He worked as a model in Miami, where he met his wife An,[1] then moved to New York, where he worked in a variety of sales and management positions for AT&T and later as advertising director for the Financial Times.

Hayward returned to Pensacola in 2002 and founded a real estate firm (now Pair & Hayward Properties) with Matthew Pair and Allan Bell. The three men, along with Cody Rawson and Russell Weaver, were partners in development company Red Fish Harbor, among whose projects were a $80 million, 244-unit condominium development called Shelter Cove of Perdido that eventually stalled.[2]

Hayward is also Vice-President of Marketing & Business Development for the World Alliance of Mixed Martial Arts (WAMMA).[3]
