Rod Fitts is President and founder of the American Vacation Rental Owners’ Association (AVROA). Founded in 2011, AVROA today is an organization representing owners’ and managers’ interests around the world.
Before AVROA, Rod founded and operated a trade school that transported education into automotive and steel companies in the United States. At the time the school was forced to close due to the financial crisis in 2008 it was teaching 1500 students a year in 10 states and had improved the skills of over 17,000 steel workers, automotive workers and veterans.
Rod has a degree in Economics from Lake Erie College, an MBA from Baldwin Wallace College and over 30 years’ experience in businesses development.
In addition to managing AVROA, Rod owns and manages two vacation rentals in Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA.
“I feel that all the experience I have had in business over the years has brought me to this point and I feel very fortunate that I have yet another opportunity to build an organization with the potential to help so many people and for such a long time.”
