Champion Hires Multi-Family Industry Professional, Jenny Donnellon

Champion has expanded its team, hiring Jenny Donnellon as the company’s new sales executive and brand ambassador. For the past 13 years, Donnellon has worked as a media consultant for For Rent Media Solutions, a division of Dominion Enterprises. She will now aid Champion in the acquisition of future third-party management opportunities, as well as be the company’s representative for business to business initiatives.


President and CEO Brian Yeager said he is delighted to have Donnellon join the Champion team. “Jenny has years of experience in the multi-family industry and knows the Columbus market very well. Her strong sales background will undoubtedly take Champion to its next level,” Yeager said. “Jenny will focus on strengthening the relationships we have with the local communities where our apartments are located and will also be an asset in areas such as business development.”

Donnellon has more than 20 years of experience in multi-family property management. During her career she has worked for some of the leaders in the industry, including Fogelman Management Group, Trammell Crow Residential and The General Investment and Development Companies. Donnellon began as a leasing consultant and quickly climbed the ladder advancing into roles as an assistant manager and property manager, prior to joining For Rent Media Solutions.

“For Rent afforded me the opportunity to form great relationships in the Columbus market, from managers, to regionals, to owners,” Donnellon said. “It also allowed me to learn the local market inside and out and help both local and national companies with their marketing plans.”

Donnellon is a graduate of Ohio University, receiving a degree in communications and has also been an active member of the Columbus Apartment Association for 20 years, where she earned her Certified Apartment Manager designation.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of such a growing company and look forward to the growth opportunities that lie ahead,” she added. “I truly believe in the business model that Champion has set forth of offering an affordable product in great sub markets in good school districts, with outstanding service being a focal point.”
