The newly enlarged Emoov has recruited digital big hitter Adam Day to run its estate agency operation.
Adam, who founded Hatched.co.uk, one of the first online-only agencies to launch in the UK in 2006 before the it was sold to Connells in November 2015, had until now been working at EasyProperty.co.uk.
After initially working with Connells to help double the size of Hatched, in July 2017 he jumped ship to EasyProperty where until recently he headed up its operations.
During his time there he was tasked with reorganising the company’s tech from a consumer-facing brand into a B2B operation following its acquisition by The Guild’s parent company GPEA.
That task would appear to be completed now, and the newly-enlarged Emoov, which bought Tepilo and Urban last week, is clearly a bigger fish for Adam.
“This is a real step up given the Emoov and Tepilo positioning as the number two online/hybrid player in the space,” he says.
“With circa 12,000 listings per annum to oversee – and growing – it will be an exciting new challenge for me.
“Russell and I have known each other for many years and respect each other enormously, so I’m glad to be part of the new, winning team at Emoov and Tepilo alongside the existing senior management.”
Adam’s recruitment is part of an aggressive team building exercise by Emoov’s CEO Russell Quirk in recent months which has included Urban’s founder Adam Male as well as two JustEat former executives in July 2017.
“I’ve been keen for some time to further strengthen the senior team at Emoov with great, proven estate agency experience,” says Russell.
“Adam’s blend of online and high street provenance makes him the ideal person to oversee estate agency performance at both Emoov and Tepilo from here on. He’s a key-hire and one that I am delighted to have spent some time persuading to join us.”
Before establishing Hatched, Adam Day worked as a Sales Manager for Country Properties in Hitchin for nearly nine years.
