The southeast Asian property portal group FazWaz has appointed James Whitehead as its new Cambodian CEO. Whitehead brings a wealth of experience from similar classifieds businesses in the region having held the position of CEO at Digital Classifieds Group Laotian brands Banlao.la and Yula.la as well as having previously been general manager of Realestate.com.kh in Cambodia itself.
As we reported earlier this month, FazWaz has expanded operations to Cambodia and in doing so rounded out the brand’s presence in Southeast Asia. The company has entered into a memorandum of understanding with leading portal Realestate.com.au whereby existing customers will have their listings appear on FazWaz and able to tap into the portal group’s international network.
Speaking about the opportunities ahead for him and FazWaz in Cambodia, Whitehead said:
“I’m super excited to be back in Cambodia, I know the Realestate.com.kh team very well and we are delighted to have Moek Chenda the founder of Realestate.com.kh as a Business Development Manager onboard FazWaz. I am also looking forward to marketing with the leading real estate platform in the country to build our brand and generate leads for the new developments that we will be focused on in Cambodia”
