History[edit]

ExecuStay was founded in 1987 and was one of the first corporate housing providers to offer its stock for sale to the public in August 1997. ExecuStay Corporation was purchased by Marriott International in 1999, where it first became ExecuStay by Marriott.[1] In March 2002 the name was changed to Marriott ExecuStay.

Between 1999 and 2002, under David Lorenzo (first as vice-president, later general manager), the annual revenue of ExecuStay increased from $1 million to more than $50 million in less than 3 years. Despite the context of a tight housing market, in less than two years, he managed to increase the division’s available apartments from 180 to 800 units.[2] He also expanded the geographic coverage of ExecuStay into nearby Connecticut, New Jersey, Westchester, and Long Island, in a time when the concept of corporate housing was considered a feature of Manhattan's real estate market.[3][4]
