AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TurnKey Vacation Rentals, Inc. today announced the appointment of Jen Ford as chief financial officer. Jen is a seasoned executive with extensive experience overseeing finance organizations for high-growth companies, most recently serving as vice president of finance for Snap Kitchen and as senior director of investor relations at HomeAway, Inc., where she led the global investor relations program. During her tenure at HomeAway, the company successfully completed an IPO, raised over $750M in equity and debt, made several acquisitions, and ultimately was acquired by Expedia, Inc.
As CFO at TurnKey, Jen is responsible for leading the finance, business intelligence and human resources organizations in support of the company's continued success in capitalizing on the fast-growing, $100 billion global vacation rental industry.
"TurnKey has everything I look for in a successful start-up: outstanding leadership, a scalable business model and a large addressable market. Their early investment in SaaS-based technology is a unique advantage, enabling TurnKey to deliver highly efficient property management services for homeowners and their guests," said Jen. "Travel is my passion, and I'm thrilled to join a team of industry veterans who are dedicated to helping vacation homeowners -- whether they have a lakeside cottage or a mountain lodge -- achieve their financial goals, and at the same time, help travelers create memories of a lifetime. Some of my favorite memories have been made in vacation homes shared with friends and family, and I'll bring this sense of purpose to my leadership at TurnKey."

As we approach the five-year anniversary of TurnKey's founding, Jen's leadership and experience in taking high-growth companies to their fullest potential will be a huge asset to TurnKey and our stakeholders.
