NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VTS, the leading leasing and asset management platform for the commercial real estate industry, today announced the expansion of its leadership team with the hiring of Josh Evans as the company’s new Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). Josh’s hire comes alongside the announcement that roughly 1 in 3 commercial office buildings in the US manage their leasing and asset management using VTS.
“Josh is a seasoned SaaS 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,” said Nick Romito, VTS co-founder and CEO.
Josh Evans brings nearly 20 years of sales and leadership experience to VTS. Josh was previously SVP of Sales and Business Development at Velocify, a cloud-based sales acceleration platform. Over his 10 years at Velocify he built and oversaw a variety of functions, including account management, sales engineering, sales operations, training, client services and professional services, resulting in a successful exit for Velocify.
“I’m thrilled to be joining VTS at such a pivotal moment of growth for the company,” said Josh Evans, CRO. “The company is in the rare position of possessing amazingly talented people, market-leading products, and the support of a passionate, fast-growing customer base. With nine out of the top 10 global investment managers already using VTS, the company is the clear market leader and has a massive opportunity for further growth. From the outset, I was attracted to the company’s strong vision and clearly chartered course for the future to capitalize on this opportunity, and I couldn’t be more excited to hit the ground running.”
VTS co-founder Ryan Masiello and former CRO has taken over the role of Chief Strategy Officer (CSO), and is responsible for VTS’ international expansion and overall corporate strategy.
Mr. Evan’s announcement comes on the heels of an exciting number of months for the company. In Q1 of this year, the company recorded a 116% increase in square footage on VTS since Q1 2017, and hired Silicon Valley vet Amy Millard as Chief Marketing Officer. Additionally, VTS recently announced an expanded partnership with global brokerage firm JLL.
At the company’s annual Accelerate conference in June, VTS announced plans for VTS MarketView™, the commercial real estate industry’s first-ever real-time benchmarking and market analytics. With MarketView, VTS’ clients will be able to compare, in real-time, their performance versus market benchmarks for critical operational, financial, and supply and demand metrics, enabling commercial real estate landlords to optimize their leasing performance and drive better leasing and investment decisions.
