BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) – A longtime Gautier business has closed after 37 years and reopened in Biloxi.
Mayor Andrew “Fofo” Gilich helped cut the ribbon Tuesday morning at Equity Lifestyle Properties (ELS).
ELS owns and operates a network of manufactured home communities, RV resorts, campgrounds and marinas across the country.
The new Biloxi facility will serve as a member service for its 82 campgrounds.
“Our customers are looking forward to camping this summer, and our agents here are ready to take their calls and make those campground reservations this summer,” said Senior Vice President Dan Perlis. “So it’s a really exciting time.”
The new building features a private office interior design, high ceilings, ergonomic seating, standing desks, dual screens, a spacious kitchen area, state-of-the-art video conferencing and a training room.
It has been redesigned and refurbished into a state-of-the-art work environment amid the pandemic.
“We were hoping to get in a little earlier, but I mean, it was definitely worth the wait,” said Pazjon Brown, contact center operations manager. “Once you see the location, the interior of the office, you will absolutely love it.”
ELS also hosts a job fair on Friday and Saturday with on-site interviews.
Management is looking to hire about 25 people for positions ranging from customer service and reservations to financial services.
