Hari Krishnan’s appointment as PropertyGuru President and Chief Business Officer will be effective in January 2016
LinkedIn executive Hari Krishnan will be joining the PropertyGuru Group, which owns top online property portal PropertyGuru, as President and Chief Business Officer from January 1, 2016, the company announced in an official release today.
Krishnan will lead and accelerate regional business growth, with the Country Managers and Sales Enablement teams in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia reporting directly to him.
“PropertyGuru is synonymous with the process of searching for a home in Singapore. As a happy customer, I am now excited to help the company to its next growth phase across the region. Surfacing the unique insights available on the platform, and by partnering even closer with real estate agents and developers in the region, we are looking to be the go-to platform for everyone who wants a dream home,” said Krishnan, who first used PropertyGuru when he relocated to Singapore.
At LinkedIn, Krishnan is Managing Director, APAC and Japan. The University of Mumbai alumnus joined LinkedIn as its first employee in Asia in 2009 and was its Country Manager in India before being promoted to his current position.
“PropertyGuru is the market leader in three of the four markets (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia) we operate in and we continue to grow rapidly. I am therefore delighted to welcome such a seasoned executive as Hari to lead all our business activities regionally,” said Steve Melhuish, CEO and Co-founder, PropertyGuru Group.
Krishnan’s appointment comes after James Sundram, who was former PropertyGuru MD (International), left to head YuuZoo Corporation as CEO in October.
