Property data firm Sprift has hired a new senior team member who until a few weeks ago a similar role at rival Homesearch.
Dan Fuoco (main pic) left Homesearch in September and has now joined Sprift as its Commercial Director, tasked with breaking new ground and exploring new markets with Sprift’s property data including mortgage lenders and asset management firms.
Prior to joining the property data sector, Fuoco had worked in estate agency since leaving school at 18, working his way up to be branch manager at Woking firm Waterfalls.
He also has property in the blood – his mother was an estate agent while his grandmother owned a conveyancing practice.
Matt Gilpin (pictured), CEO at Sprift, says: “This is a very exciting point for the business and I am delighted that Dan has come on board to explore new avenues for our extensive property data and is overseeing our venture into new markets.
“Our mission remains unchanged, ‘to better inform buyers and, ultimately, reduce the time it takes to complete a property sale’ – we want to improve the home buying and selling process.
“Our data is only as good as those who are using it, and – already – it is having a huge impact on swathes of agents.
Dan Fuoco says: “I have a deep understanding of the applications of the data and how it can be used.
“I also have an appreciation for the pain points and the key cogs of the property information cycle. I truly believe that Sprift has the power to fill so many of these gaps and to support the requirement for minimising risk.”
In May this year Sprift signed an exclusive deal with property portal OTM.
