Vanessa de Souza Lage
Chief Marketing Officer
In the vacation rental industry since 2004, Vanessa started off as an agent with her own global website that at one point had 8000 online bookable rentals. In 2015, she co-founded Rentals United, a channel manager for vacation rentals. Rentals United was built upon a simple idea: making a channel management software that is easy to use and accessible to large and small professional property managers. Today, the VC-backed business spans 160 countries, with over 100,000 vacation rentals distributed and 60 PMS connected. Vanessa is the Chief Marketing Director at Rentals United and also founded the VrTech brand which includes the Vacation Rental Start-Up Awards, VrTech Meet-Ups and the Vacation Rental Tech Week. She also thoroughly enjoys interviewing the CEO’s of large short-term rental property management companies in her video-podcast “The Secret Sauce of Large Property Managers”.
