Property software giant Reapit has found a new CEO three months after previous incumbent Gary Barker quit to join Boomin.

Reapit’s new boss is Mark Armstrong who takes over from interim CEO Adrian Gill, who is to remain with the company.

Armstrong brings with him over 30 years of experience in the IT industry having worked in senior leadership roles in diverse sectors including enterprise application support, application development, SaaS and business process management.

Before joining Reapit, Armstrong was the Group Vice-President and General Manager EMEA at Rimini Street, a market leader in third-party support.  Prior to that he held positions at Progress and LexisNexis, where he was responsible for driving many of the property industry data integration standards.

Reapit and its customers across the globe are expected to benefit significantly from Armstrong’s international experience and in-depth understanding of delivering market leading technology.

Armstrong, says: “Reapit is a strong business and a respected, well-known brand name in the proptech sphere, and I am looking forward to working with everyone on the team to continue delivering feature-rich, innovative estate agency CRM solutions for agents across the UK and internationally.
