Yopa has announced that Ben Poynter, the hybrid agency's Chief Executive Officer, will stand down at the end of this month to "pursue new opportunities"

The company's Chairman, former Countrywide Chief Executive Grenville Turner, will lead the search for Poynter's successor, the agency has confirmed.

Yopa says that Poynter's departure follows the successful completion of its recent round of fundraising, in which the agency secured £16 million of additional investment.

"Since taking over as CEO Ben has led the business through a period of substantial change, improving the financial performance and laying the foundations for the future success and growth of the company."

Formerly the agency's Chief Financial Officer, Poynter became Chief Executive in April 2018 as Co-Founder and former Chief Executive Daniel Attia became Chairman.

"First and foremost, I would like to thank all the employees and agents for their commitment to help build what is a very special company and I wish them all the very best for the future," says Poynter.

"I’m proud to leave the business with strong foundations to build on and am confident that Grenville Turner, a seasoned executive in the property sector, will help Yopa appoint a new CEO to lead Yopa through its next phase of growth in the coming months."
