FocalAgent has announced the appointment of Lee Wainwright as its CEO.
Wainwright, who holds 26 years of experience with Countrywide, was previously CEO of Purplebricks before his departure in March of this year.
Jeremy Hallsworth, CEO of FocalAgent, said: “Lee has a passion for estate agency and a deep understanding of all parts of the UK residential property sector.
“He has worked at all levels, from Negotiator to CEO, and also uniquely within traditional, corporate and online sectors.
He added: “We’re delighted he is joining us at a truly exciting phase in our growth and we look forward to him helping our current and future customers make the best possible use of visual content for themselves and their vendors and landlords.”
Wainwright said: “Property marketing is changing in the digital age and being able to harness the power of brilliant visual content with clever technology is adding real value to estate agents in both sales and lettings.
“I love the products and I love what they do for estate agents and their customers even more. The ambition at FocalAgent is infectious and I know I’m joining a great business at a genuinely exciting time.”
FocalAgent aims to improve business for agents by improving visual content for their business. It was formed in January 2019 after a merger of AudioAgent and KeyAGENT.
It is the sales and marketing arm of the wider Focal Ventures group, and its customers include Connells, Countrywide, LSL, Purplebricks and Romans & Leaders.
