Last changed on November 16th, 2022

AppFolio is expanding! We lately invited Jay Choi, Principal Technique Police Officer and also General Supervisor, Development to AppFolio, and also we’re enjoyed have him onboard.

In his duty, Jay will certainly lead business approach growth and also not natural development throughout AppFolio. Jay is an effective enhancement to our management group, bringing substantial development approach experience, solid management abilities, and also a dedication to our AppFolio worths and also society.

Right here, we are familiar with Jay, why he picked to expand his occupation with us, and also his overview for AppFolio’s future.

Why was AppFolio the best option for you?

Jay: When I check out a company, whether to operate at or recommend, I constantly attempt to concentrate on individuals, item, and also prospective

What originally attracted me to AppFolio were individuals. It’s extremely unusual to locate a group that is not just smart yet additionally simple and also cares deeply concerning society. Every business on the planet speaks about its society, yet what I have actually located at AppFolio is a start-up, in-it-together ambiance also at a developed, effective public business.

Structure upon individuals at AppFolio, the AppFolio item is a clear leader in the room. As soon as a consumer attempts AppFolio, they remain. I saw notes of clients claiming “AppFolio transformed my life and also permitted me to hang out with household that I could not in the past.” There’s an actually effective psychological link to the brand name. That sort of item commitment is just uncommon.

And also lastly, the possibility. Today we are concentrated on success in the realty market, yet we are additionally leveraging our expanding impact to broaden both within the home administration market and also nearby markets. This emphasis enables us to deeply recognize the difficulties of a customer and also produce purpose-built services. I think the skies’s the restriction for AppFolio’s long-lasting development approach.

What have you observed throughout your very first couple of weeks at AppFolio that amazed you?

I have a tendency to check out approach as “what we pick not to do.” Among one of the most unusual (and also revitalizing) features of AppFolio is that we invest equally as much time speaking about what NOT to do as high as we hang out speaking about what we will certainly do. For the majority of companies, that sort of emphasis is actually difficult and also approach normally winds up as a go-after-everything/do-everything technique.

I especially remember one conference at AppFolio where we invested a great deal of time speaking about prospective possibilities we did not intend to go after since they were an interruption from our long-lasting approach. That takes a great deal of guts when you are attempting to drive development. I ignored that conference with a great deal of regard for just how approach is followed up at AppFolio for the long-lasting vision and also is engrained deeply in the society.

At Qualtrics you assisted lead the Staff member Experience organization. What have you found out about society and also worker interaction that you intend to give AppFolio?

Among the locations I have an individual interest for is variety, equity, and also addition. I check out DE&I as not a human resources campaign, yet an organization approach, and also genuinely think that variety and also depiction make us a much better business.

To show my factor, there’s a widely known tale concerning an automated soap dispenser that can not identify darker complexion. The company behind the soap dispenser ultimately recognized that the absence of variety in their growth and also screening groups led to their item stopping working to give soap for darker-skinned people. Visualize flight terminals and also dining establishments setting up these soap dispensers just to discover they did not function. This occurs on a daily basis and also the most effective firms recognize that variety is not simply an employing statistics or feel-good task, yet definitely vital to draw in and also preserve clients and also staff members.

Finally, what is a leisure activity or interest you appreciate beyond job?

My trouble is that I have way too many passions! On the whole, I enjoy physical fitness and also sporting activities. My preferred sporting activity is basketball without a doubt, yet I additionally enjoy snowboarding, snowboarding, and also I lately grabbed boxing. Every person in the Santa Barbara workplace center informs me I need to attempt pickleball … so I think that’s following on the listing!

AppFolians enjoy where we function, and also you can also. We’re constantly seeking skilled people to join our group; put on end up being an AppFolian today!
