Multifamily Technology Solutions Hires Former BRE Properties Executive As Sr. Vice President Sales and Client Services

National Apartment Association Conference, LAS VEGAS - June 23, 2011 – Multifamily Technology Solutions, parent company of MyNewPlace.com, a leading ILS, announced today that former BRE Properties executive Todd E. Katler is joining the company as Sr. Vice President Sales and Client Services.  Leveraging more than 15 years in the apartment industry, Katler will be responsible for the development and execution of all sales and client services initiatives aimed at rapidly increasing business growth.

“I’m proud to have someone of Todd’s caliber lead our sales team,” said CEO and founder, John Helm.  ”His track record is unmatched and he is a proven expert in many facets of the industry, especially in the areas of sales and marketing, and the issues facing multifamily owners, managers and developers.”

Most recently, Katler served as the senior vice president sales and marketing for BRE Properties, Inc., a real estate investment trust, and was responsible for financial success and operations for sales, marketing, corporate communications, and for implementing many cross-departmental initiatives.

Prior to BRE Properties, Katler served as vice president, business development, at Level One, LLC, a provider of outsourced leasing agents.  In that role he contributed to a nearly three times increase in revenue and the industry adoption of enhanced marketing metrics.   Prior to Level One, Katler was the director of sales at Rent.com (an eBay company), where he managed the relationships between Rent.com and owners of more than 23,000 properties in every major U.S. apartment market.

“While at Level One, I was able to see how each ad source performed against its peers in a completely impartial manner across thousands of properties in every major market.  After joining BRE and implementing MyNewPlace portfolio-wide, I was able to track its progress in becoming a top-3 source of leases.  Combined with some of the most innovative marketing services offerings our industry has seen, joining the MyNewPlace team is a fantastic opportunity.”

Katler studied business administration at California State University Northridge and earned a certified apartment supplier designation from the National Apartment Association. He is a former board member of both the National Apartment Association as well as The California Apartment Association.
