2019 Rising Star: ​​​​​​​Kevin Ortner

President and CEO, Renters Warehouse

F1

Kevin Ortner is the president and CEO of Renters Warehouse. Ortner joined the company back in 2009 when he opened the very first Renters Warehouse franchise in Phoenix.

But in the years since Ortner became CEO, he did something that no other Renters Warehouse shareholder before him had ever done – he reinvented its growth and operations model to scale faster than ever before. Ortner added thousands of properties under management through strategic acquisitions, partnerships and takeovers. Today, Renters Warehouse manages more than $3 billion in residential real estate and serves more than 14,000 investors across more than 22,000 residential homes over 42 markets and 25 states. In fact, in December 2018, Renters Warehouse announced the acquisition of OwnAmerica. With this acquisition, Renters Warehouse created an entirely new category in real estate by changing how people invest. With the business now offering an end-to-end solution for real estate investors, Ortner is working to make real estate investing accessible to everyone.
