She was a Regional Manager for a couple of years and oversaw all onboarding and training for new hires in her portfolio. “I love training and leading teams to success. Leaving property management operations and going to the supplier side only made sense for me if it was Grace Hill” says Willow.

In his latest role, Aaron was a Regional Director of Operations for a leading luxury corporate housing provider in the North East Region, overseeing complete operations, guest services, inside sales, property relations, and capital improvement projects for the New York, New Jersey, Boston, and Connecticut markets. Aaron will be responsible for customer experience, including onboarding, training, and support.
Jay Thompson, Account Manager, joins the team with over 7 years’ experience in the multifamily industry.
