NEW YORK, March 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Furnished Quarters, the largest provider of temporary furnished apartments in New York City and Boston, today announced that Peter Potharn, Global Solutions Coordinator, has received the Certified Corporate Housing Professional (CCHP) designation from the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA).

Potharn joined Furnished Quarters in 2006 as a Sales Associate and later was promoted within the company to roles including Account Manager, Corporate Sales Associate, and Senior Sales Coordinator. He has been in his current role as Furnished Quarters' Global Solutions Coordinator since September 2015 reporting to Ken Brown, Manager of Global Solutions. Prior to joining Furnished Quarters, Potharn served as a Sales Consultant at The Inn at Fox Hollow in Woodbury, New York. Originally from Hungary, Potharn received a Master of Arts in English from Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest.
"I really enjoy the hospitality and mobility aspects of corporate housing and the role housing plays for individuals, both in their professional and personal lives," said Potharn. "This makes the corporate housing industry quite unique, and I am very happy to receive the CCHP designation while serving on behalf of such a dynamic, preeminent company in this field."
