Reside, the leading provider of professionally operated global alternative accommodations, is proud to announce that its Chief Technology Officer, Robyn Joliat, CCHP, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA).
Robyn is an innovative global housing leader with over 25 years of experience in operations, revenue generation, supply chain, and product development. Appointed to the CTO role in April last year, Robyn has been instrumental to the success of Reside’s proptech solution, Reside 3Sixty, despite the numerous challenges arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Robyn has led the development of Reside 3Sixty from the front-end experience, making the platform cost-effective and easy to use for corporate travel decision-makers. It now boasts an online network of over one million vetted, compliant accommodations in over 60 countries. Reside 3Sixty grew its existing client revenue by 43% in 2021, while new business generated a 32% increase in revenue.
Prior to joining the Reside leadership team, Robyn served as the Executive Vice President of ABODA (now ABODA by Reside) in charge of driving all company operations and made her mark in the corporate housing industry holding a variety of positions within BridgeStreet Global Hospitality.
Robyn Joliat, CCHP, CTO of Reside, said: “CHPA plays a vital role in the development of the sector and the success of its members. I’m delighted to have this opportunity to serve the wider corporate housing industry as part of the Committee. I also hope to increase the visibility of female CTOs in general – at present we only make up about 10% of CTOs in the US.”
Mary Ann Passi, CHPA CEO, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Robyn as the newest addition to our Board of Directors. Robyn’s unique insights gained from her leadership roles in the industry will be invaluable to our team as we move forward into 2022.”
