SkyRun Vacation Rentals was started by Barry Cox and Steve Falk in 2004 to bring their combined 40 years of expertise in business development, web design, web application development, marketing and sales to bear on the vacation rental property management industry. Both Barry and Steve owned vacation rental properties which they self-rented and saw the opportunity to bring today's internet marketing and productivity techniques to a vacation rental industry that largely was stuck in the 80's relying mostly on returning guests and more traditional sales channels.
After 6 years of operating and adding vacation rental locations and developing our own systems, Steve now owns and operates 2 SkyRun locations (SkyRun Keystone and SkyRun Steamboat Springs) and Barry is CEO of SkyRun Vacation Rental Services.
SkyRun Vacation Rental Services offers the overall SkyRun Vacation Rentals brand, franchises, software and services to vacation rental companies (SkyRun locations and others). Essentially, we offer the software and services developed from scratch for the vacation rental marketplace that have made us successful. We offer our software and services in 2 ways. 1) traditional software and services for purchase running your own vacation rental company or 2) Included with a SkyRun Franchised location where you own and operate a SkyRun Vacation Rental location using our systems and branding and sales network. The choice is yours.
About SkyRun's CEO:
Barry Cox - Barry founded SkyRun Vacation Rental Services after a 22 year carrer with IBM in both IBM's Global Services and Software divisions.

SkyRun's systems are the result of Barry's unique blend of experience on both the 'business' and 'i/t' side of things. Barry's 22 years of IBM experience, blended with 7 years of experience as an entreprenuer running and developing systems for his own property management business provides a set of expertise unmatched in the property management industry.
