Meet RentMoola: Colin, The Biz Dev Battle Horse

banner

Nestled in the heart of downtown Vancouver and downtown Toronto, RentMoola team members can be found performing a variety of different roles that make RentMoola the successful business that it is today.

RentMoola “opened for business” in 2013 with three powerhouses behind the wheel: Patrick Postrehovsky, Co-Founder and CEO, Phillipp Postrehovsky, Co-Founder and COO, and Andrew McLeod, CSO.

RentMoola now boasts nearly 30 employees in our Vancouver and Toronto offices to make sure that our product is the very best that it can be, and to make sure that our users have the Cadillac of customer experiences.

One by one, we’re excited to introduce our team members. Each member of our team is here not only because they’re ridiculously talented–but because they love what they do.

RentMoola is a well-oiled machine that allows Property Management Companies to accept rent payments online from their tenants, which reduces paperwork, saves time, and rewards both the tenants and the Property Managers. RentMoola owes much of it’s success to all-star team members like Colin, the Biz Dev Battle Horse. Colin is responsible for acquiring and maintaining partnerships with Property Managers all over the world. We asked Colin a few questions so that our followers can get to know the man on the other end of the phone.

Pictcha1. When did you join the RentMoola team? And what about the position (Manager of Business Development) interested you the most?

I joined the team in October of 2015! I was drawn to the role of Business Development Manager because I love to help with the growth of a business. RentMoola was particularly enticing because it would give me a chance to make an impact on a company that is changing the landscape of the property management industry.

2. How did you get into your field of work?

I got into the field of sales through great mentorship, which allowed me to learn a lot about the business world before ever getting started. My first real opportunity came through meeting somebody traveling, who later became one of my good friends and eventually my boss! After spending some time there I eventually jumped ship to RentMoola where I now have a chance to see the development of a start up company from the very early stages.

  • Ipod
  • Speaker
  • “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho
  • A pot
  • A hammock

4. What’s the best road trip you’ve ever been on, and what made it so memorable?

The best road trip I have ever been on has to be when I drove down Highway 101 to California with a few of my friends. We loaded up two cars with camping gear stopping at National Parks along the way before ending up in Palm Springs at the end of 5 days to finish the trip at Coachella before heading home!

5. Describe the RentMoola team in 3 words.

Adventurous, Innovative, Friendly

6. Who inspires you, professionally? And why?

Elon Musk – I have always admired Elon Musk for his ambition to take on projects that are larger than life and would normally be thought of as impossible or crazy.

Warren Buffett – “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

Coco Chanel – A women who came from very little and managed to turn her own name into a globally recognized brand that has far surpassed her time with us.

Gramatik – Cool Thieves

8. Describe the last great meal you made.

I only cook if it involves a barbeque! The last great meal I made was a perfectly cooked steak paired with twice baked potatoes and some broccoli and cauliflower.

9. What do you do when you’re not crushin’ it at RentMoola? 

Outside of RentMoola I try to stay as active as possible, during the winter I love to snowboard! During the spring and summer I try to take advantage of the beautiful weather in BC by going wakeboarding or surfing.

10. What are 5 of your bucket list items? (in no particular order)

  • Base Jump
  • Wing suit
  • Touch down in every continent
  • Climb Everest
  • Learn a new language

Colin is a kickass member of the RentMoola team, he keeps the business in ship shape and adds a huge boost of motivation for each member to get the job done. Big ups to Colin for his contribution to the team.

If the RentMoola life seems like something you’d be interested in, good news, we’re hiring in our Vancouver office! Take a look at our Careers page and drop us a line!
