Synergy is excited to welcome Christopher (Chris) Crosby as its newest Global Business Development Manager in the Western United States region. An active and passionate member of the business travel and mobility industries, Crosby will manage and secure new accounts from the Pacific Northwest down to Southern California.
“Joining the Synergy team has been quite a privilege as they are the clear leader in the corporate housing industry,” said Crosby. “With its global footprint, local presence in emerging markets and world-class leadership team, there’s a great opportunity to help multi-national organizations adapt to the future of work in new and dynamic ways.”
Crosby entered the mobility and business travel space with industry pioneer Oakwood in 2016. While with Oakwood, he climbed the ranks from Local Sales Rep to Global Account Director in just four years before leaving in March of 2020 to start his own firm, Crosby Consulting Corp. During this time, he also obtained his California real estate license and joined Buckingham Investments as a multifamily real estate agent.
“Chris is a dynamic professional with a diverse skill set that we think will bring a lot of value to our clients,” said, Managing Director of Sales, Western U.S., Susan Becker. “We’ve had our eye on him for over two years, and I’m so excited to finally get him on the team as we think he is a cornerstone to the next generation of growth at Synergy.”
Crosby is an active member with industry associations, having served on the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Annual Golf Tournament and Public Relations Committees as well as the Bay Area Mobility Management (BAMM) YP40 Committee. He’s also volunteered with LifeMoves, a transitional housing service for homeless families and individuals looking to return to stable, permanent housing.
Passionate about multifamily real estate, corporate wellness, and education, Crosby enjoys spending his free time traveling, hiking, and competing in triathlons.
