Early employee of the first cross-platform leasing solution in Commercial Real Estate to manage portfolio & team performance. My job was to work on business development, enterprise sales and go to market strategy in new cities around the country. As a lean team we all wore many hats, and one area that I oversaw was the user feedback from brokers who were early adopters of our product, synthesizing and distilling those insights into actionable requests for our Engineering team. VTS has raised $90M to date, one of the largest venture investments ever in the commercial property tech market. Using video, distribution, and real-time analytics, VTS helps the world’s largest owners and brokerage firms lease space. The technology not only helps users create leasing opportunities, but manage the entire deal process from start to finish.
