KNOXVILLE, Tenn., July 27, 2022 – Inhabit, a software company serving residential and vacation property management industries, announced today that travel industry executive Donna Goudie will oversee the company’s Vacation division, while RentalGuardian CEO Brady Stump will serve as Director of Vacation Rental Strategy.

As Managing Director, Goudie will work across the Vacation division to drive strategic initiatives and client advocacy programs designed to accelerate the future of vacation rental technology and deliver greater value to the vacation rental industry.

Brady has built his career on outstanding service to property owners, managers, and travelers, and is well respected within the vacation industry,” said Lisa Stinnett, CEO of Inhabit. “We’ll lean on their insights and expertise as we continue to develop innovative, best-in-class products and programs for our vacation rental clients.”

“It’s an exciting time to join a thriving company like Inhabit, especially with the current post-pandemic travel resurgence,” said Goudie. “Inhabit’s Vacation division arms short-term rental companies with software solutions to help them manage all aspects of their business and achieve greater success.”

As CEO and co-founder of RentalGuardian, a leading travel and property protection service, Stump brings more than a dozen years of experience to his expanded role. He will continue in his current post leading RentalGuardian while taking on the additional responsibilities of helping shape Inhabit’s vacation rental strategy.

Stump added, “More travel means busier, growing vacation rental businesses, and our mission is to use our technology to help those companies scale and succeed. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to deliver even greater value to the vacation rental sector which is such a vital part of a healthy economy.”
