Rent.com.au founder, CEO and managing director Mark Woschnak has decided to step down ahead of the company's next phase of commercialisation and growth citing the need for "new leadership".
Woschnak, who has been at the helm of Rent.com.au for close to 10 years has presided over a number of important milestones, including successfully listing the company last year and consecutive years of growth.
“I am extremely proud of what RENT has achieved and my role in its success, from founding the business in 2007, through to successfully listing the Company on the ASX in June last year,” Woschnak says.
“The Company is now approaching a dynamic new phase of commercialisation and it is timely to introduce new skills and leadership to take the business through.
"I leave the company in very safe hands, from the board level down to the management team and staff." .
As a significant RENT shareholder, Woschnak adds he's keen ongoing supporter of its future success.
The role of CEO will filled by Greg Bader, who has been providing strategic consulting services to RENT, while a thorough recruitment process is undertaken.
Bader, who has worked in the Information and Communication Technology industry for more than 20 years, most recently held the positions of Chief Business Officer and Chief Technology Officer respectively with iiNet.
RENT non-executive chairman Dr Garry Garside says the board supports and respect Woschnak's decision to leave the company at this point in its development.
“What Mark has achieved in the creation of RENT is remarkable. He leaves RENT in a strong market position and we wish him every success with his future endeavours.”
Woschnak will step down immediately.
