Drawn to living at beautiful vacation destinations since his college days, Laird worked the kitchens, rental counters and delivery routes throughout the U.S. before returning home to North Carolina’s Outer Banks, landing squarely in the Vacation Rental world. As investor, banker, rental manager, general contractor and now insurer, there is little about the industry that he doesn’t have hands-on experience with. He recounts his hurricane history like a roster of old uninvited friends, taking the destruction they’ve left in stride as a part of the OBX experience, and leading him to a heartfelt appreciation for the challenges and concerns of vacationing guests and the VRM industry. A self-confessed workshop piddler, Laird is crazy about his daughters Liz and Ede, as well as UNC basketball. He is on a decade-long home ACC game attendance streak – go Heels!
