Asia-Pacific’s first commercial property platform CorporateRealEstate.com has appointed Joe Waller as Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Joe is the former Technology Strategist and Chief-of-Staff of Betfair, the world’s biggest sports trading platform.
It is a move that further demonstrates CorporateRealEstate.com’s commitment to developing a unique purpose-built online platform for the commercial property sector. It’s also the company’s third major senior appointment in three weeks, following the high-profile appointments of two JLL Directors, Tom Barr and Don Mackenzie as Directors.
Joe Waller says that he is excited by the prospect of working with a platform that supercharges how agents and agencies can market and sell, reshaping the way that stakeholders in the commercial property sector connect.
“I’m passionate about how to utilise technology, not just to support and drive businesses, but to transform them and revolutionise their sectors. CorporateRealEstate.com offers so much more than what was previously available. Using their industry knowledge, Adam Flaskas and Grey Rogers have created a platform that connects corporate tenants, tenant representatives and investors to real estate opportunities in a way that’s simply never been done before”, said Waller.
CorporateRealEstate.com Co-Founding Director and property entrepreneur Grey Rogers says the appointment of Joe Waller is paramount for the platform’s expansion into new markets.
“To build an international platform like CorporateRealEstate.com, it was imperative that we hired a CTO who had a proven track record of building a global .com brand. Joe’s depth of expertise is critical to our expansion through Asia-Pacific”, said Rogers.
In his 10-year tenure with Betfair, Joe played a key role in growing the company from a UK technology start-up into the world’s largest Internet betting exchange. With annual revenues of over $700 million, Betfair’s technology matches 30,000 trades a minute – more than all of Europe’s stock-exchanges combined. In 2010, Betfair floated on the London Stock Exchange as Europe’s biggest .com at the time.
