Now is the perfect time to bolster our commercial organization and sales presence in the multifamily sector, and the hiring of Matt and Jim is a powerful testament to our belief in and commitment to this industry.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 13, 2016
The Rainmaker Group, the market-leading provider of automated revenue management and profit optimization software solutions for the Multifamily Housing and Gaming & Hospitality industries, welcomes Matt Curry and Jim Trainor as vice presidents of multifamily sales. In these roles, they will be charged with educating the multifamily industry on the convergence of revenue management and marketing and its benefits to improve demand generation and increase overall revenue.
Curry will oversee Rainmaker's multifamily sales activities in the Eastern United States, while Trainor will perform the same duties for the West region. Indicative of the strong growth Rainmaker continues to experience, the hires come after a recent announcement that the company was included on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing privately held U.S. companies for the sixth consecutive year. With more than 200 employees in North America, the company has achieved a three-year growth rate of 86 percent, and promises to continue that trend in 2016.
"The apartment industry continues to grow more sophisticated in its operations, and the need for our cutting-edge solutions that help operators optimize demand generation efforts is rapidly increasing," said Rainmaker Chief Commercial Officer Mike Cowles. "Now is the perfect time to bolster our commercial organization and sales presence in the multifamily sector, and the hiring of Matt and Jim is a powerful testament to our belief in and commitment to this industry."
Curry comes to Rainmaker from Cvent following the company’s acquisition of SignUp4. He joined SignUp4 in its early stages and helped the company increase its revenues tenfold over his tenure with the firm. He served in various sales and marketing leadership positions before becoming the company’s vice president of sales and business development. In less than 10 years, Curry and his team had made SignUp4 such a force in the corporate meeting, events and travel technology space that Cvent, the undisputed leader in the sector, sought to acquire the company. After the acquisition was complete in 2015, he served Cvent as director of sales where he oversaw all acquisition, integration and client transition operations to ensure the purchase was successful. Curry graduated from Western Kentucky University with a degree in finance.
Trainor comes to Rainmaker after a 15-year tenure with the CoStar Group Inc. While in his previous positions as regional sales director for the Dallas/Fort Worth and the Washington D.C. regions, he helped to provide access to information, analytics and marketing services to the multifamily and commercial real estate industries. He has a proven track record for successfully leading sales teams through major acquisitions, company integrations and high growth. Trainor has more than 25 years of software sales experience including sales leadership roles with LexisNexis, Shepard's Citations and National Data Corp. He graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a bachelor’s degree in biology and psychology.
