Corporate housing firm opens local office, acquires units in new market
ABODA, one of the industry’s largest corporate housing firms, is launching its expansion into Portland, OR. After announcing its global growth plans early last year, ABODA has been looking at domestic markets that align with its growth strategy.
ABODA Global Housing Management chose Portland as both a logical and strategic growth opportunity. “Due to Portland’s proximity to our corporate headquarters, the city’s rising economy and job growth, the market made strategic sense,” stated Robyn Joliat, Vice President of Global Client Services & New Market Development.
According to the 2015 Reis report, Portland’s economy is on the rise. Home to major global brands such as Intel, Nike and Adidas, Portland is attracting the world’s workforce with the creation of 76,600 jobs in the last six months. Growth is projected to continue well into 2016, making this a very smart market for ABODA.
With industry veteran, Jana Cooper, heading up the Portland office, ABODA is fully up and running on the operations and sales side, and executing against an aggressive strategic plan. With its first bookings in the market and strong relationships with valued accounts, ABODA is set to be a competitive industry player in the market.
According to ABODA Global Housing Management president, Lee Curtis, the goal in Portland is simple, “We will provide our renowned world-class customer service to clients and guests while delivering a reliable and responsive housing solution that fits the needs of relocation decision makers, procurement managers and human resources executives doing business in the market. We’re excited about this move because it allows ABODA to secure its dominant share of the corporate housing industry in the Pacific Northwest.”

ABODA Global Housing Management uses a logistics-focused approach, combining the best of program planning and administration, inventory management, execution, service delivery and technology to help corporate clients operate more efficiently and enhance customer experiences.
