Amenify Corporation, the leading platform for in-home service staffing within high-end residential properties, announced that Howard Behr has joined the Company as Chief Operating Officer.
Behr has spent 20 years in the multifamily industry and was most recently President at Lapa Lopa, a technology-enabled cleaning service company focused on the multifamily market. Prior to Lapa Lopa, Howard served as an executive at RealPage and NWP Services (acquired by RealPage in 2016) where he led Product, Operations, and Sales & Marketing to scale the business footprint to over 2.5 million units.
“As the multifamily industry evolves to make the resident experience even better, I am excited about the approach that Amenify has taken to deliver services to residents,” Behr said. “In particular, I look forward to putting more structure and tools into place to effectively scale the business. Amenify is going through a significant growth phase, yet we’re just at the tip of the iceberg in this large, untapped market.”
Everett Lynn, Founder & CEO of Amenify shared that “Our mission is to transform residential communities and create win-wins for residents and service professionals alike. Howard is an important hire for Amenify, as our client owners and managers need us to scale our staffing services to more than 360,000 homes with 500,000+ residents. Executing Amenify’s playbook on these contracts while maintaining superior service quality is the top priority. Accordingly, we are thrilled to add Howard’s operating and product experience to drive the next chapter of Amenify’s growth.”
Prior to RealPage and NWP, Behr earned an M.B.A. (Wharton School) and an M.A. degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and served in the US Peace Corps in Haiti and Uruguay.
