HelloPackage, the newly-launched and sophisticated package management system technology, today announces that Kevin George has been named Chief Operating Officer. George brings a strong passion for early-stage and growth-stage enterprise SaaS companies, and for more than 20 years he has been an integral member of leadership teams raising capital and driving transactions including five rounds of capital, 11 acquisitions, and one IPO.
“We are excited to welcome Kevin George to the team, and know that he will bring a wealth of experience across a number of avenues as we grow our company and team,” states James D. Grady, Founder, and CEO of HelloPackage. “Kevin brings a solid track record of leading go-to-market strategies in both early and growth stage companies, and we know he will be instrumental in producing and developing approaches to get our industry-transforming technology in apartment communities across the country.”
Prior to joining HelloPackage, George was co-founder and CEO of InfoTycoon where he and his team served hundreds of multifamily clients, including nearly half of the NMHC Top 50, with industry-leading property inspections and asset management software solutions. Before InfoTycoon, George founded Progility Partners a boutique consulting firm serving technology-centric clients including CNN, Turner Broadcasting, Sparkfly, What’s Up Interactive, Renovo Data and ISTA North America. George has also served in operating executive roles with Quris, Silverpop and Manhattan Associates.
“I’m thrilled to join the team at HelloPackage. The problem HelloPackage addresses is a very complex and rapidly growing problem for the multifamily industry,” states Kevin George, COO of HelloPackage. “It’s not a secret that apartment communities are overrun by the huge number of packages delivered to residents. The multifamily industry is losing many leases each year because their leasing staff is tied up handling eCommerce packages. For the average property, lost lease revenue is in the hundreds of thousands each year and asset value in the millions. It is a significant impact on any sized portfolio. Current solutions like package lockers are inefficient, have limited technology, are not economically scalable and quickly become overwhelmed. HelloPackage is a smart system which gets the leasing team out of the logistics business and back to leasing apartments which significantly increasing cash flow and asset value for apartment owners.”
