DENVER, CO — Pillow and ApartmentJet, part of the Expedia Group family, are thrilled to announce the recent hire of Wes English who will serve as National Director of Sales for Multi-family. In his new role, English will be developing new business opportunities, fostering new engagements, and providing leadership for the sales team, all while driving revenue growth.
“Wes is a key component of our growth strategy for the Pillow and ApartmentJet product lines. He is a conscientious professional that has earned a reputation as a consultative sales leader in our industry,” said Eric Broughton, General Manager of Multifamily at Expedia Group. “He is effective with his focus on bringing product value to Multi-family Owners and Operators and improving the bottom line, which is what our products do best…”
English joins the Pillow and ApartmentJet team with over seventeen years of experience in the multifamily field. English recently worked as vice president of sales and head of SMB with Rentlytics, where he was responsible for delivering insights that assist clients in making beneficial and strategic decisions for their multifamily real estate portfolios.
“After the longest up cycle in real estate history, the market will inevitably change. Providing owners and operators with additional opportunities to improve vacancy, entice and retain the right residents, and improve NOI is my ultimate goal. Frankly, this is a no brainer with this suite of products backed by Expedia Group.” English said, when asked about his overall goal for the company.
Rentlytics was acquired by RealPage in late 2018, expanding the company’s business intelligence and performance analytics platform to nearly 1 million additional multi-family units. English played an integral part in this merger. His previous experience and strong leadership skills allow for a seamless transition to Expedia Group. English will be working from the Expedia Group office in Denver.
“I couldn’t pass up this opportunity since short term rentals in multifamily is an untapped niche that allows owners to easily add those ever elusive dollars to their bottom line while also providing one of the most sought after resident amenities. The fact that Expedia Group saw that value in both Pillow and ApartmentJet and is willing to properly invest in that growth is an added bonus.” English said.
Pillow and ApartmentJet are two of the leading short-term rental innovators that provide an all-inclusive service for multi-family owners. Thanks to Expedia Group’s recent acquisitions, Pillow and ApartmentJet are able to come together to meet the needs of multi-family short-term rental owners and managers, providing short-term rental strategy and increased revenue.
