Indian real estate platform Housing.com has received an investment of an undisclosed amount from Vineet Singh, former business head of 99Acres.com.
Singh built 99Acres.com and Naukri.com from start-ups to scaled companies as part of Infoedge's executive leadership team for a decade. He will now work closely with the Housing.com management team in a senior advisory role.
“Housing.com has been a disrupter which has redefined the way consumers buy and sell homes in the marketplace," Singh says.
"With a great product and a strong management team, I am a proud investor in Housing.com and look forward to further this dynamic company on its path to becoming the largest and most trusted player in the online real estate space."
A veteran in the real estate industry, Singh has a proven track record of delivering high-growth results in the offline and online space. Having spent a decade in the online space, he is a specialist in B2B and B2C marketplaces.
Prior to joining InfoEdge, Singh worked with Xerox and Thomas Cook and is an expert in the areas of strategic planning, large scale execution, and sales & operations management.
Currently, Singh is co-founder, CEO and MD of Buildczar.com, one of India's largest marketplace for building materials and finishing products.
Housing.com Chief Executive Officer Jason Kotharisaid says Singh brings with him enriching experience, deep understanding of the ecosystem and a decade of high-achieving sales leadership in the online real estate space.
"On board as a personal investor, Vineet will also serve as a senior advisor to the company working closely with the management team," Kotharisaid says.
"We believe that his association will further fuel the ambitious growth plans of Housing.com."
