Seattle, WA – July 7, 2015 – Corporate housing industry leader Robyn Joliat is joining the management team at ABODA, a leader in providing global housing management for some of the world’s best-known brands, spearheading the company's recently announced global expansion plans.
Joliat, as the new Vice President Global Client Services & New Market Development at ABODA Global Housing Management, is dually tasked with the development of new growth markets globally and developing and managing its “best in class” global account management department. She will report directly to ABODA President Lee Curtis.
“Robyn Joliat is one of our industry’s most recognizable personalities, having spent the last 20 years building client relationships across the U.S. and around the globe,” said Curtis. “She’s managed people, departments, markets, global reservation call centers in three international regions as well as a supply chain in the Americas. Having built and led successful teams in both operations and systems, she has an unquenchable thirst to set the highest bar for client satisfaction.”
“For years ABODA has been known for its Seattle-style, service-first corporate culture that has made it one of our industry’s most admired and respected companies,” says Joliat. “Joining the team to help write the next chapter for ABODA as a game-changer in corporate housing is a great opportunity.”
Joliat joins ABODA from BridgeStreet, where she has spent her entire career. She navigated a path that started with a humble beginning as a housekeeper, becoming one of its most talented young executives. Most recently as Vice President, Global Client Solutions, she was responsible for the strategic and tactical oversight of BridgeStreet’s regional call centers, located in the U.S., the UK, and Singapore, as well as helped provide direction and structure for its U.S. markets.
Her leadership skills extend well beyond the world of corporate housing, as she is a past-president and prior long-time board member of Executive Women International and its Cincinnati chapter.
At ABODA, Joliat is being immediately tasked with developing and implementing the firm’s global account management program to provide clients across the Americas, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) and APAC (Asia Pacific) with a seamless, high quality experience that consistently meets or beats the expectations of both existing and new clients.
