SmartRent, an enterprise smart home and smart building technology platform for real estate owners, managers, and residents, today announced the hiring of team members for the development of its new student housing division.
SmartRent Regional Sales Executive Lillian Scholz is one of three team members who will move over to student housing. Scholz recently joined the SmartRent team after serving as a staffing consultant with Beacon Hill Staffing Group’s technology specialty division, which provides consulting and project management services to the IT departments at top companies.
Also making the move to SmartRent’s student housing division is Connor Blunt, previously an inside sales specialist with SmartRent’s Alloy Smart Home line. Blunt, who has worked to help home builders accelerate their sales cycles and increase prospect traffic through the deployment of SmartRent’s self-guided tour platform, will refocus his efforts on student housing initiatives as a regional sales executive.
Matthew Godfrey is also joining the SmartRent student housing team as Sales Director. Matthew is a veteran of the student housing industry and comes from a Fortune 50 company where he specialized in managed WiFi and IoT. He has been involved with numerous student housing retrofits and portfolio deals across the nation. Matthew takes involvement in the sales cycle from inception to implementation and drives NOI with SR and owners/developers alike.
“We’re excited about the development of our student housing division, and also happy to announce the industry professionals who will be leading our expansion into the student housing sector,” said CJ Edmonds, CRO for SmartRent. “The student demographic is incredibly responsive to technology and smart home innovations, and they expect to be able to manage their lives and their homes from their mobile devices.
