The Australian-owned proptech firm has appointed a prominent tech veteran as the company’s new chief technology officer (CTO).

John Natsioulas has been named the new CTO for Hutly, a real estate tech company that specialises in property contract transactions and payment solutions.

Mr Natsioulas brings with him over 20 years of experience in a range of organisations, including a nine-year tenure at PEXA.

“Throughout my career, I have sought opportunities to build complex technology products delivered in a simple way that meets the needs of our customers,” said Mr Natsioulas.

“In my role as Hutly CTO, I am focused on building and strengthening Hutly’s technology capabilities and product offerings, which I believe will be transformative for the industry,” he said.

In particular, Mr Natsioulas shared that he is eager to continue streamlining outdated processes through harnessing the power of technology.

“Property is rife with complexity and inefficiency, and technology has a significant role to play in streamlining and simplifying the experience for all parties involved,” he said, noting that data security and “transacting with trust” would also be a strong focus.

Jeremy Hastings, founder and managing director of Hutly, cited Mr Natsioulas’ “unrivalled industry reputation and calibre of expertise” as major reasons behind the appointment decision.


“John’s passion and technical expertise align perfectly with our vision, and under his leadership, I am confident our platform will mature to deliver an unmatched digital experience for all players,” Mr Hastings said.

“Hutly was founded with the belief we can create a more equitable and transparent economy within real estate,” he said. “To achieve this, Hutly has a clear plan to be the digital rails that transact property.”

“We are in safe hands with John who has strong pedigree in both payments and leadership from his time at PEXA.”

This is not the first time that Hutly has appointed a C-suite leader with experience at prominent tech firms.

In early 2022, Stuart Spiteri was named Hutly’s new chief executive officer, following an extensive career at Google, News Corp and Akamai.

As of 2024, Hutly stated that it services “over 47 per cent of the east coast property market”, including an established partnership with the Real Estate Institute of Victoria.
