Lease management software firm VTS has announced the appointment of Josh Evans as chief revenue officer, while co-founder Brandon Weber revealed he will be taking a back seat at the company.
Weber set up Hightower which was acquired in 2016 by rival VTS. He currently serves as VTS’s chief product officer. He intends to travel before thinking about his next project, and will continue to sit on the company’s board on an advisory basis.
Meanwhile, Ryan Masiello, VTS founder and former chief revenue officer, has taken the role of chief strategy officer, and is responsible for VTS’s international expansion and overall corporate strategy.
Evans joined VTS from sales productivity software company, Velocify. He brings nearly 20 years of sales and leadership experience, having served as senior vice president of sales and business development at Velocify, where he built and oversaw a variety of functions, including account management and sales engineering.
Nick Romito, VTS co-founder and CEO, said: “Josh is a seasoned software-as-a-service sales leader with a proven track record for growing revenue as well as building and coaching world-class teams. We had a number of qualified candidates and Josh stood out to all of us – he’s the ideal person to help lead VTS through the next stage of growth.”
Evans added: “[VTS] is in the rare position of possessing amazingly talented people, market-leading products, and the support of a passionate, fast-growing customer base. From the outset, I was attracted to the company’s strong vision and clearly chartered course for the future to capitalise on this opportunity, and I couldn’t be more excited to hit the ground running.”
Evans’ hire comes alongside the announcement that roughly one in three commercial office buildings in the US manage their leasing and asset management using VTS software.
This year has seen rapid expansion of VTS, with the launch of its benchmarking analytics platform VTS Marketview in June. Additionally, the company recently announced an expanded partnership with global brokerage firm JLL.
