Oak Park, Mich. (August 19, 2010) – Blvd Suites Corporate Housing, one of the largest providers of fully furnished, temporary apartments in Michigan, is pleased to announce the addition of Linda Harris as the newest addition to its sales team.
Harris’ primary focus will be on securing new corporate relocation and short-term housing business in the Metro Detroit area, and accommodating existing guests. She will also pursue new business in expanding markets outside the immediate Metro Detroit area.
In Harris, Blvd Suites inherits a robust resume of experience in the temporary accommodations industry. She has worked on both the property management and corporate housing sides of the business for 15 years. Most recently, she served as relocation account manager for Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel, and prior to that as account manager for global corporate housing provider BridgeStreet Worldwide.
“Linda understands how to cater to the expansive and varied needs of major, international companies, as well as the specific intricacies of the individual business traveler or relocating family,” says Blvd Suites CEO Jeff Hurley.
“Her knowledge in the areas of lead generation, sales support and guest services are invaluable assets that perfectly suit her in this new role,” says Director of Sales Shelly Bishop. “We are excited to add her skills to our team.”
“I’ve had the privilege of working with Blvd Suites for the past six years as both a partner and a customer, and I’ve always admired the staff’s unwavering dedication to excellence,” says Harris. “I am honored to have been selected to join the team, and I look forward to sharing in this commitment.”
