About

Wes is the co-founder and CEO of DirectTM Property Management Software where he oversees the company's growth and development. 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. This truly scalable “all-in-one” solution allows suppliers to streamline operations, automate distribution, and increase margins & conversions via a free, modern e-commerce website – no technical skills required. 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.
