Gary Barker, who was to be CEO of the highly anticipated customer and agent-focused real estate platform, is stepping down from the position before the official launch of the site, stating unforeseen family reasons.
Barker was named CEO in September after he stepped down from his position at Reapit following the initial COVID crisis.
“The opportunity to work on such an amazing business for our industry and with a formidable team of people was a great privilege. I personally remain a big supporter of Michael, Kenny, and everyone at Boomin and will continue to be an ambassador. For now, I must concentrate all of my time on my family.”
Boomin was conceived by the brothers that brought us Purplebricks with a goal to disrupt the industry by offering more than the average listings site. With its forward-thinking business model, its attracted the attention of other such disruptors like Say No to Rightmove, who is wholeheartedly backing the startup.
The launch date of Boomin is still in limbo.
