Founded in 2017, DirectTM (http://www.getdirect.io) is a next-generation enterprise software solution for professional vacation rental management companies & boutique hospitality management companies that manage anywhere from one website and dozens of units to dozens of websites and hundreds of thousands of units.

Prior to founding DirectTM, Wes helped launch a niche vacation home rental marketplace for sporting event destinations called GamedayHousing (http://www.gamedayhousing.com) in 2010, and then he co-founded a two-sided marketplace that brings professionally managed vacation rentals to the masses called Vaystays (http://www.vaystays.com) in 2015. Both of these marketplaces will run on the DirectTM software platform starting in spring of 2017. Wes has a passion for branding and product, and in his spare time enjoys travel, live music, and spending time with his family.
