Rentals: Put Your Best Foot Forward With Michelle DuChamp and Grant Miller
Is your resort getting the rental income it deserves? For many legacy timeshare resorts, the answer to that question is “no.” The reasons vary, but the end result is the same: a struggle to monetize association-owned or -controlled inventory to defray loss of income from unpaid maintenance fees. For the latest information on how to optimize income from unused inventory, don’t miss this upcoming session featuring Michelle DuChamp and Grant Miller of Vacatia Partner Services.
Grant’s career spans over 30 years in the timeshare, outdoor recreation membership clubs and financial services industries. Starting in 1991, Grant spent eleven years with RCI, ultimately serving as the company's Vice President of Global Business Marketing, where he rebranded the company’s business-to-business and global marketing efforts, drove organic growth with existing resort affiliates and was a key executive developing and negotiating key client relationships for RCI.
