Property software market leader Reapit has appointed Dawson Scott as its first Chief Technology Officer and tasked him with making the company a more significant proptech player and a ‘global’ force.
Scott started at the company yesterday, joining from Thai telecoms firm True Corporation and before that spells at DPD and Rolls-Royce.
Reapit says it has appointed Scott to lead its efforts to be more innovative and customer-centric for sales and letting agents, and help direct its fast-paced acquisition programme since being bought by a US private equity firm 18 months ago.
Last year that included buying web design firm Resource Techniques Ltd, mobile-based agent work management service Pocket Size Media and marketing platform AgentBox.
“Reapit has the vision and acknowledged position as market leader, and perhaps, more importantly, the reputation for innovation and reliability – to become the global platform for real estate professionals,” says Scott (pictured, above).
“I am pleased to be joining the group at this very exciting time and I look forward to working as part of the Reapit leadership team for our CEO, Gary Barker.”
Barker says: “Appointing him to CTO is testament to our dedication of putting our customers’ success at the heart of the business. Dawson’s role and his wealth of expertise and knowledge will translate into significant value for our customers.”
Reapit is based principally in the UK and Australia but also has a presence in Europe, and Scott’s appointment is a clear sign that the company has designs on becoming a more global provider of estate agent software.
