We have announced the latest in a string of high-profile hires as we position ourselves for continued expansion over the coming year.
Frank McGlade joins us from Just Eat as their new Chief Financial Officer, having served at the takeaway giant as their Head of Corporate Development, contributing to the company’s own period of explosive growth and IPO.
Prior to Just Eat Frank was a Director in Deutsche Bank’s Equity Capital Markets team, where he was responsible for originating and executing initial public offerings and equity capital raisings, largely within the UK.
Frank joined Just Eat in 2012 to manage the company’s initial public offering on the London Stock Exchange, which successfully completed in April 2014 raising £360m.
He then became responsible for managing the company’s global acquisitions and investment strategy and under his guidance, Frank and his team closed more than 25 transactions for Just Eat since they became publicly listed.
The latest hire bolsters our impressive team sheet which already includes CMO Lucy Milne, also formerly of Just Eat, Sales Director Richard Olliffe and COO Guy Halfhead.
I spent six great years at Just Eat and I’m now looking forward to the next challenge at Emoov, and it’s great to have a few familiar faces already in place here.
There are a number of similarities between the two companies, with both providing a disruptive option to a traditional sector that benefits the consumer.
While Emoov has already grown dramatically in eight short years, I’m confident that our best years of growth potential are still ahead of us to become the household name for UK home sellers and, as we continue with our estate agency revolution, it won’t be long until this potential is realised.Frank McGlade
