A reshuffle at the top of PropTech Group aims to offer greater support to the firm’s growing product offering.
The firm has made three significant promotions, while announcing that chief revenue officer Bill Nikolouzakis will step away from the business.
Luke Paverd, the founder and chief executive of Eagle Software, will move into the role of chief operating officer after joining the firm last year during his company’s acquisition. He will now be responsible for driving the company’s operational strategy.
Joe Hanna, PropTech Group’s CEO and managing director, spoke of Mr Paverd’s business acumen in announcing the appointment.
“Luke Paverd has nearly a decade of experience building real estate CRM software. He is a master team builder and product visionary who will greatly contribute as COO. In his new role, he will help shape and deliver on our product roadmap and vision for the future,” Mr Hanna said.
Meanwhile, Luke Thomas, chief operating officer of PropTech Group’s web design and development agency, Website Blue, has been promoted to become chief commercial officer of the group. Website Blue became part of the conglomerate in March 2021.
Mr Hanna described Mr Thomas as an “industry expert who understands the commercial opportunities and challenges better than perhaps anyone”.
In his new role, he will oversee the commercial strategy of the company’s partnerships, third-party integrations, and training services while ensuring franchise groups get the best possible value from PropTech Group products.
Finally, the company’s head of marketing, Audrey Nicoll, has been promoted to the new role of chief marketing officer after joining the organisation in March 2021 with 20 years of marketing leadership experience under her belt.
“Audrey is a creative and data driven master marketer. In her new role, she will focus on efficient growth and increasing revenue with both product-led and group-wide initiatives,” Mr Hanna said
These changes, according to the CEO, will serve to “tightly [knit] together our subsidiary businesses and partnerships to provide greater value and a better experience for our customers”.
