OnTheMarket has revealed its new CEO who is Jason Tebb, 45, an industry stalwart with 20 years’ experience including at senior levels within LSL, Chestertons and Foxtons.
This makes him the only former estate agent to lead a major property portal. Rightmove’s Chief Executive is a former management consultant and Charlie Bryant, who leads Zoopla, is a former banker.
Tebb has been group COO of Ultimate Holdings until now. It’s a property company which owns or has interests in several house builders and also operation specialising in property investment, financing and consultancy services and part of his role was to be its media representative.
Prior to that he helped launch hybrid London estate agency Ivy Gate and before that he was a Regional MD at LSL, an Area Director at Chestertons and started his career from a junior level at Foxtons.
“Having worked in the estate agency sector for the last two decades, I have first-hand experience of every size of business, from a single office independent to the largest of property PLCs,” says Tebb.
Christopher Bell, Non-Executive Chairman comments: “We believe Jason has the skills and sector experience to take the Group forward and achieve our objective of building a strong, agent-backed, profitable and technology-enabled business.”
