Property management company :Different has added a chief revenue officer to the fold, luring a top executive away from Domain.
The company’s appointment of Tony Blamey, formerly Domain’s chief commercial officer, follows on from its $25 million Series B raise in September, led by Antler alongside x15ventures, the Commonwealth Bank’s venture-scaling entity.
That capital raise coincided with the announcement of a strategic partnership between :Different and CBA, which will see both groups collaborate on exclusive offers and benefits and is to be led by Mr Blamey.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the team at :Different. Having spent much of my career around the property market, I’m inspired by their mission to take care of homes and the people who live in them,” Mr Blamey said of his new position. The executive counts over a decade of experience working in real estate-focused roles among his expertise.
“:Different combines intuitive technology with personal connections to deliver amazing experiences for tenants, owners and our partners. I’m looking forward to building on the success of the business to date and driving the next phase of growth,” he added.
:Different co-founder Ruwin Perera described Mr Blamey’s appointment as a significant win for the company.
“We’ve experienced 12 months of tremendous progress, and now with our CBA partnership and incredible talent like Tony on board to lead this crucial part of our business, the next 12 months are shaping up to be our biggest yet,” Mr Perera said.
Giving some insight into the company’s upcoming strategic goals, he outlined that “Tony will be instrumental in building out our agent proposition. We want to help agents grow the value of their rent roll asset and leverage world-class technology-driven user experiences to help them delight their customers.”
