As co-founder and CEO of Vero Leasing, Lou Baugier leads his team through the process of developing purpose-built tools that streamline leasing and deliver an unparalleled renter experience. His main focus is on the execution of a shared vision, with his co-founder, to revolutionize the leasing process.
Even with the impact of COVID-19, Baugier pushed his company through the challenges and utilized this time as an opportunity for innovation and growth. In response to the pandemic, he and his team built a patent-pending fin-tech solution, Income & Assist Verification (I&AV), born out of necessity to allow property managers and landlords to verify the financial situation of rental prospects and current renters and enable renters to seek crucial financial assistance.
“I am easily most proud of having assembled the team we have at Vero,” he says. “The biggest determining factor of success, especially at the seed stage of a business, is the human capital driving the vision.”
