Singaporean property portal group PropertyGuru has appointed Daan Prince as its Chief Financial Officer.
Prince predominantly worked for at Royal Philips over his career, and in his most recent role as Finance Director at Lumileds Singapore led the successful global implementation of SAP for the finance function at all Lumileds sites. Prince was instrumental in helping Lumileds spin-off from Royal Philips.
Steve Melhuish, CEO and Co-Founder of PropertyGuru said Prince’s expertise lay in value creation, business growth and change management, and his role will be to oversee the financial and operational aspects of PropertyGuru across all its markets while working alongside Melhuish and the Board of Directors.
“I’m delighted to welcome such a high calibre finance leader into our Guru family,” Melhuish said.
“Daan possesses an impressive track record, technical skillset, commercial acumen, strong people skills as well as experience gained in highly competitive technology industries.
Over the last 18 months, we’ve been working hard to build a world-class leadership team at PropertyGuru. Daan’s appointment completes that jigsaw and I’m confident that he will play a key role in PropertyGuru’s continued rapid growth.”
Prince said he was honoured to join the team and to work alongside a capable leadership team.
“The company has already undergone an impressive growth journey towards becoming the leader in online property search in this region,” he said.
“I hope to bring fresh and innovative ideas on how PropertyGuru can continue that journey sustainably while harnessing operational efficiencies.”
