GetGround has appointed former Google and Facebook executive Marco Grossi (pictured) as VP of revenue.
Grossi was part of the founding team for Google Cloud, Google’s cloud computing service.
From Google, he became head of SMB advertising in EMEA for Facebook, and most recently, Grossi worked at Stocard, a German digital wallet app.
Moubin Faizullah Khan, co-founder and chief executive at GetGround, said: “Marco’s appointment is a huge win for GetGround and he is an important asset in our fast-growth strategy.
“Working closely with our data and product teams, Marco’s experience and perspective will help us ensure we have the best possible understanding of what customers – present and future – want, need and value while rolling out our extended product roadmap.”
Grossi added: “GetGround may be less than two years old but already it’s adding $1bn of property on an annualised basis: the company is being highly disruptive to a very traditional industry, making it just the sort of business I love to support.
“With its clear, customer-driven strategic approach and awesome collaborative team culture, GetGround stands to become the definitive marketplace that helps anyone to invest in hard-to-access assets.”
