Zoopla has brought on six new veterans, one of which is the new Chief People Officer who formerly worked for Dyson. The British property portal says it is now listing more rental properties in London than Rightmove.
Zoopla has claimed top position in London’s rental market and revealed that 2,000 agents have joined or rejoined the company over the past 12 months as it forms a new executive team.
The portal now claims to list 49,000 homes available to rent in the capital, which makes it the largest of all the portals in this sector.
Zoopla also claims that its recently-launched UK Cities House Price index is becoming the leading market data source for estate agents operating in urban areas.
The portal has also hired its latest wave of new talent including senior executives from Experian, Simply Business, Callcredit, The Photobox Group, Dyson, eBay, Amazon and Microsoft.
The new arrivals include Andy Marshall who becomes its Chief Commercial Officer, David Ross (Hometrack MD), Neil Edward, (CFO), Alex Rassmussen (Strategy & Corporate Development Director) and Catrin Anderson (Chief People Officer).
Zoopla has been on the hunt for product and technology, data, strategy, HR, finance and commercial talent since its £2.2 billion acquisition by US finance giant Silverlake in May 2018, which wants to see a more experienced executive team running the portal.
