Furnished Quarters, the largest independently owned and operated provider of global temporary housing, announced today that Catherine Meenan has joined the company as Vice President of Sales.

She will report to Victoria Yanakos, Executive Vice President of Sales. Catherine has led a dynamic 30-year corporate sales career, reflecting senior leadership experience and record-breaking sales performance. Her successful tenure includes the roles of Vice President of Regional Sales, North America at British Airways and Vice President of National Accounts at Etihad Airways. In these positions she led sales teams of as many as 30 direct reports, drove new business, retained and grew revenue exceeding as much as $500M, and established strategic partnerships with industry peers.

In her new role as Vice President of Sales, Catherine will work closely with Victoria to develop and lead the Furnished Quarters sales team and manage some of the company’s largest client relationships.

“Catherine’s propensity for leadership, growth and capitalizing on goals will be a major asset as our company continues to expand all over the globe,” said Victoria Yanakos, EVP of Sales. “I’m personally excited to be working with such a strong leader and talented salesperson as my partner in mentoring the Furnished Quarters sales team.”

With Furnished Quarters’ regional and global markets now encompassing over 800 cities worldwide, Catherine’s far-reaching experience and connections will also prove valuable to the company.

“We’re thrilled to welcome a strong leader in the international travel space – especially someone like Catherine with such a diverse and expansive professional background,” said Steve Brown, CEO of Furnished Quarters. “She brings experience outside of corporate housing, which will be beneficial to understanding the full scope of what our global clients deal with every day.”
