Australian real estate mega-company, REA Group, has welcomed Eleanor Creagh as the company’s new Senior Economist. Creagh is a veteran financial commentator in Australia and brings with her deep experience in local and international capital markets.
REA Group Chief Audience and Marketing Officer, Melina Cruickshank, said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Eleanor as we continue to drive our ambitious data strategy forward. Bolstering critical economic and data capabilities will form the foundation to REA’s future growth as a property data powerhouse."
Creagh will work with REA Group’s Director of Economic Research, Cameron Kusher, and will take the lead when it comes to driving the company’s economic research program and keeping consumers up to date via market analysis and commentary. She will work out of the REA Insights team, alongside specialist economists Anne Flaherty and Paul Ryan.
“Eleanor will play a key role within the REA Insights team, utilizing proprietary data to deliver unparalleled market intelligence to help support our customers and consumers make the most informed property decisions.”
Creagh has held a number of leadership positions, including Senior Market Strategist at Saxo Markets Asia Pacific where he provided real-time economic updates, data analysis, and insights into what moves and drives capital markets.
Commenting on her appointment, Eleanor said:
“I’m excited to join a dynamic team in a global growth business. REA Group has the most comprehensive view of the Australian property market with millions of people around the country visiting realestate.com.au each month. I’m looking forward to bringing a fresh analytical lens to the team and helping deliver value to our customers and consumers.”
The move to bring on a new economist could be part of REA’s recent agreement with PropertyGuru, where REA shifted its Thai and Malaysian assets to the Malaysian real estate giant.
