“We have been approached by many vacation rental partners asking us to bring our unique solution to help them mitigate fraud. Bringing an experienced, talented person like Brian that understands the vacation rental space so well gave us the chance to do just that,” said Terry Slattery, CEO of CheckpointID.
“I am thrilled to be joining this dynamic team at this time. Watching what they are doing for the multifamily industry is fantastic. I am certain the same amazing fraud-prevention tools they have developed will translate perfectly to the vacation rental space,” said Brown.
