The  Sunday Times “Top 100 British Innovators” has been released and we’re proud to announce that our own Russell Quirk is among those highlighted.

For the fourth year in a row, Maserati hosts the event recognising the entrepreneurial spirit and acknowledges disruptors across several industries. Each year the theme varies and this year honours innovators who have contributed to their sectors with the execution of an original idea.

As a result, it’s not surprising that Russell is being appreciated for his hard work and vision in revolutionising a broken sector that lacked trust and integrity in the eyes of the consumer.

Emoov was created to disrupt the traditional industry by charging fairer fees, offering excellent customer service, upholding transparency throughout the home selling process and all with a sophisticated technology platform that has been built to empower its users to have control of their property sale.

Having sold his stake in the families third-generation high-street estate agency business, Russell started Emoov and has been working ever since to offer the consumer the perfect blend of the old and the new. He realised that technology was a crucial element changing numerous sectors across society from insurance, to shopping, to entertainment by improving service levels why reducing overheads – which results in a better price point to the customer.

After eight years in business, Emoov continues to develop in a thriving industry sector, helping to evolve the way people sell their homes and how they think about estate agents.

Russell is joined in the top 100 by Monzo’s Tom Bloomfield, Sipsmith’s Sam Galsworthy and Fairfax Hall, Ladbible’s Alex Solomou, Citymapper’s Azmat Yusuf and Freddie Garland of Freddie’s Flowers.
