Rowe joined the company in 1987 as a CORT Workplace sales representative, during Jeff’s tenure he has been instrumental in forming and leading many of our customer segments. His areas of focus have included, CORT Destination Services, Insurance Housing, Multi-Family Housing, Property Technology, and CORT’s entry into the short-term rental business through partnerships with companies providing accommodation services in the marketplace.
He is passionate about the application of technology to enhance the overall customer experience while providing the tools they need to solve their prospective client’s needs. Rowe has made it his mission to make furnishing any environment a seamless part of the rental process.
“Even prior to the pandemic, CORT anticipated the shift in the way renters search for and acquire their next living space,” explained Rowe. “It has transitioned from a largely in-person process to almost 100% online. For years, my team has been working tirelessly to provide compelling offerings to our diverse customer segments. This has helped customers such as property managers introduce the concept digitally to prospective residents that any unit can be furnished, not just when they are on-site at a property. This is something we now refer to as ‘Furniture as an Amenity.”
