SEYMOUR, Conn. (December 18, 2019) - There have been quite a few exciting announcements at The Junkluggers over the past several months - from celebrating their 15 year anniversary in June to announcing a partnership with minority investor Contractor Nation in August and opening the first franchise in the state of California in November. With the company on the brink of explosive growth across the country, starting with several franchise deals closing in December, The Junkluggers now announces the expansion of our executive management team with the recent hire of Vicky Hochhauser as Director of Business Development and Karren Nash as Appointment Center Manager.

“Both Vicky and Karren are joining The Junkluggers at a pivotal time, as the growth of our franchise network across the country is accelerating,” said Josh Cohen, The Junkluggers founder and CEO. “Each of these talented women brings a track record of success with them, and both will be instrumental in driving and supporting our expanded sales efforts.”
Vicky Hochhauser brings to The Junkluggers over thirty years of experience in the travel, publishing and digital media industries, developing partnerships and leveraging marketing to enhance overall sales performance. Most recently, Hochhauser was the Business Development Manager for our Long Island and Queens franchise where she was able to strengthen its strategic partnerships with local charities, professional organizers and real estate agencies leading to consistent referrals and contributing to solid revenue growth as well as a strong channel for donations. In her new role at The Junkluggers, Hochhauser will be leading the effort to grow the company’s strategic partnerships and accounts on a national level while working directly with The Junkluggers franchise partners to drive sales and partnerships on a local level.

“I am thrilled to be joining the team doing what I love, developing strategic and tactical plans, while coaching and mentoring a team of people who are passionate about what they do,” says Hochhauser. “The Junkluggers has been on my radar for a long time and I have watched it grow from a start-up to an emerging brand. I admire the commitment to their mission of giving back to the community and I’m excited to help bring our eco-friendly junk removal solution to more companies that are focused on their sustainability efforts.” Karren Nash is currently the Director of the International Call Center at Treehouse Internet Group, a division of Contractor Nation. Nash oversees the strategic planning and execution of all Call Center Operations for Contractor Nation and was the natural choice to manage The Junkluggers’ Appointment Center. She has over twenty years of sales operations and call center management experience and is skilled at coordinating analytical, strategic and customer service resources to meet franchise expectations and ensure customer satisfaction. Nash’s role at The Junkluggers will include staff recruiting and training, implementation of effective Quality Assurance programs, and management and leadership of processes for the continuous improvement of the customer experience.

“I love what I do, and I was immediately drawn to The Junkluggers work hard/play hard while supporting a healthy work/family balance mentality,” says Nash. “Leading people to become better personally and professionally is what makes me eager to go to work every day, and I am excited to join a team that supports one another and works hard to accomplish the goals set forth by a company they believe in.”
