Skyauction.com has, since its inception in 1999, been engaged in selling vacation rental units globally in conjunction with some of the largest and most powerful organizations and developers in the business. "Our alternate distribution model of auctioning travel has proven to be a very useful resource for those engaged in every facet of the timeshare industry", added Hering. "The current economic environment is forcing every potential traveler to study the value represented by vacation ownership of all types including rentals and now is the time for us to capitalize on that interest". Skyauction.com has utilized its base of over 1.5 million registered members to market and auction airline tickets, hotel stays, packaged vacations, cruises, restaurant and attraction discounts, vacation rentals and other travel related products. Skyauction.com has also spearheaded various lead generation and timeshare sales campaigns that have yielded results over and above its normal auction activity over the course of the last ten years.

Benson has held senior marketing positions at Diamond Resorts International, Wyndham Vacation Ownership, The Shell Group, Hilton Grand Vacations, and Marriott's Vacation Club International at Grand Chateau in Las Vegas.
