ZegoTM, a resident experience-based proptech, announced naming Stephen Baker as President and General Manager, according to a press release.
Baker formerly acted as Zego’s Chief Product Officer, and brings over a decade of proptech-specific knowledge and experience to the company’s executive board. As part of the new appointment, Baker intends to immediately leverage Zego’s parent company, Global Payments, to drive more value-added services for property management clients.
“Zego is a leader in the proptech and resident experience management space, and with Zego’s recent acquisition by Global Payments, we’re primed to accelerate our growth and expansion within the industry,” Baker stated in the release.
“Our Pay solution is already the strongest offering in the market. We will continue to leverage this core competency, while doubling down on resident experience through continued innovation and partnership expansion. We’re also laser focused on delivering actionable data and tools for our customers to support their operational goals,” he said.
In addition, Baker stated a long-term goal of expanding Zego’s resident experience portfolio, and help customers increase resident satisfaction.
Since launching in 2003 (previously under the name Paylease), Zego has seen a number of changes to its product service offerings.
Previously focused on providing more convenient rent payment options to community managers and renters, the company has since expanded its offerings to include communication, smart device management, and utility operation within its platform.
