High-profile Connells’ Group Commercial Director Jon Notley, has left the company less than 20 months after joining on a permanent basis.

Notley’s appointment in February last year followed a six-month period when he helped the agency integrate with Countrywide following its acquisition.

Short term

Connells says Notley’s appointment was always intended to be short term even though he said at the time he joined: “I am extremely proud and delighted to join Connells Group on a permanent basis.”

He also said: “I look forward to doing my bit to realise the huge opportunity we have in front of us.”

Richard Twigg, interim CEO of Connells Group, told The Neg: “When Jon agreed to re-join Connells, primarily to drive forward a number of key projects, it was always anticipated that this would be short term and that he wanted some time away from business life in the near future.

“Having successfully completed these key projects, Jon has decided that now is the right time to take some time out.  Connells would like to thank him for all his efforts and wish him well in the future.”

Long career

Before his involvement with Connells, Notley had spent several years launching deposit alternative platform Zero Deposit, where he remains a director.

Notley has enjoyed a long career in the industry. In the early noughties, he joined working in sales just after it was snapped up by The Digital Property Group which at the time also owned PrimeLocation.

Notley later jumped ship to the early incarnation of Zoopla before TDPG itself was bought by ZPG and, as the new portal grew, he rose to become its chief commercial officer.
