Zoopla has appointed six executive hires across its product, technology, data, strategy, HR, finance and commercial divisions.

David Wascha joins Zoopla in August as chief product and technology officer, Andy Marshall joins as chief commercial officer and David Ross joins Zoopla’s data arm, Hometrack, as managing director of data.

Others joining are Neil Edwards as chief financial officer, Alex Rasmussen as strategy and corporate development director and Catrin Anderson as chief people officer.

Charlie Bryant, managing director of Zoopla, said: “Our ability to build an executive team of such impressive individuals with deep experience in disruptive technology reflects the continued investment in our journey to develop our broad offering to provide the best value for money for our agent clients and become the UK’s number one property destination.

“Agents are beneficiaries of the digital marketing revolution and our goal is to provide tools which help them to be as efficient, and to reach as wide an audience, as possible.

“This is why the investment in our host of products and software is crucial to continue helping agents make waves.

“I’m confident our new executive team are the ideal group of leaders to take Zoopla to where we are aiming to be: the preferred partner for both agents and consumers.”

Wascha joins from The Photobox Group where he was group chief product officer and responsible for transforming its five brands such as Moonpig and Photobox.com.

Marshall joins from Experian, Ross from Callcredit, Edwards from Simply Business, Rasmussen from Boston Consulting Group and Anderson from Dyson.

This team joins Gary Bramall, who joined in December from MyTaxi as chief marketing officer and Richard Donnell, research and insight director, formerly with Hometrack.
