Gebbett is the former General Counsel and Head of Corporate Affairs at now Tencent- owned iflix, having led the sale of the emerging-market streaming startup to Tencent in mid-2020. She has also held in-house legal positions at 21st Century Fox and Sky and was named one of Southeast Asia's top 100 in-house Lawyers in the 2019 Legal 500 GC Powerlist.

Juwai IQI Group Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Georg Chmiel said:

“Emily worked on Sky’s investment in iflix and iflix’s various fundraising rounds and is an expert in the legal and fundraising requirements at fast-growing technology companies like Juwai IQI."

“At iflix, Emily and her team designed a bespoke end-to-end contract lifecycle management system which significantly increased the efficiency of the legal team and freed her to make more strategic contributions to the business. “We are extremely lucky to have such a talented and experienced legal professional as our new Group General Counsel.”

Gebbett for her part said on her appointment:

“I enjoy being a part of rapidly moving businesses that are constantly evolving and growing, and Juwai IQI is one of the fastest growing technology companies in Asia. The company is growing transactions at approximately 300% in 2021, from the 17,000 completed in 2020, and it is also building a 2,000-person strong team in Kuala Lumpur for global research and development. I could not be more excited to be a part of the next phase of Juwai IQI’s growth.”

Juwai IQI has recently made headlines for expanding its network of agents around the world to markets as diverse as Portugal and Mongolia as well as for being one of the first few large real estate tech companies to commit to net carbon-zero by 2030.
