CORT, one of the nation’s leading providers of furniture rental and transition services, has announced the promotion of Jon Hile to executive vice president of business strategy. In his new role, Hile will oversee the leadership teams in their Workplace and Strategic Business Development sales verticals. He will also have responsibility for the business unit 4SITE by CORT while continuing his work on growth initiatives related to CORT’s additional B2B offerings.
Over Hile’s career, he has demonstrated the ability to spearhead new business strategies that drive record-breaking growth—achieved by launching impactful and unique services, M&A integration, and by capitalizing on untapped market niches. He rejoined CORT in 2019 as the senior vice president of business strategy and previously held positions of chief revenue officer at BridgeStreet, president of Lexicon Relocation, and president and COO of National Corporate Housing.
“Throughout Jon’s career, he has successfully led and energized sales leadership teams across diverse customer verticals,” says Mike Davis (pictured right), president and COO at CORT. “His focus on understanding the customer need and aligning the sales and go-to-market strategy accordingly has produced increased long-term customer satisfaction and revenue growth. I have no doubt Jon’s leadership experience will correlate directly into success for Jon and the company at this next level.”
“The pandemic has created new challenges for most companies,” says Hile. “CORT is in a unique position to assist customers in achieving their business objectives through the utilization of our services. I am thrilled by the opportunity and look forward to working with our teams in Workplace, Strategic Business Development, and 4SITE to leverage their respective strengths and enhance customer success.”
