CORT, a Berkshire Hathaway company and the nation’s leading provider of transition services, announces the certification of Group Vice Presidents Bill Swets and Jeff Reich as Certified Corporate Housing Professionals (CCHP) from the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA). The CHPA is a professional trade association exclusively dedicated to supporting corporate housing providers around the world.
Swets and Reich passed a stringent exam on the corporate housing industry in order to receive the CCHP certification. This professional recognition exemplifies their competence and professionalism in the corporate housing business. With their certification, Swets and Reich plan to continue to represent CORT as a reputable partner in the corporate housing industry.
“CORT is passionate about serving our partners in the corporate housing industry,” said Swets. “This certification shows that CORT cares about our customers and their business needs. The more we understand about the industry the better we can service it.”
Swets was one of five people on the founding board of CHPA. As the only vendor on the board, Swets hoped to one day have both a member and vendor certification program. Twenty years later, he has personally accomplished that goal. Reich gained his corporate housing expertise through his work at Oakwood Worldwide for 10 years overseeing both San Diego and Hawaii, opening the Hawaii location, as well as his two years at US Suites.
