Robyn Perriss, a veteran Finance Director at Rightmove, has announced that she is stepping down. During her 12 years with the company, she saw revenue skyrocket five-fold and share trading at a record high.

The date of her departure has not been announced but is likely to be during the second quarter of next year. She will continue in her role over the coming months and support the recruitment of her successor.

Perriss, who is well liked and respected in the city, said:

“It has been an enormous privilege to have been part of the Rightmove journey and its success for more than a decade.

“I am immensely proud to have worked in such an outstanding and innovative growth business and alongside so many talented Rightmovers.

“Rightmove is in a strong financial position with exciting opportunities ahead as it continues to innovate to make home moving easier.”

CEO Peter Brooks Johnson said: 

“Robyn has been a huge asset to Rightmove. In the dozen years she has been with Rightmove, firstly as financial controller and latterly as finance director, Rightmove’s revenue has grown by nearly five times.

“Robyn has been an integral part of this journey, most notably through guiding our finance function as it has developed during a period of strong growth and ensured that our investors remained informed and fully engaged.”

With Rightmove shares currently riding high, one measure of her success has been the sheer number of times that investors have been urged to get on board by City writers.
