Deposit alternative provider flatfair says it’s set to make big announcements soon - and in the meantime it’s attracted a key appointment from a rival firm.
The firm says it “expects to announce a number of new partnerships with large Build To Rent operators and estate agents in the coming months” without giving any indication of their identities.
Meanwhile Gary Wright - former chief operating officer of the firm’s major rival, Zero Deposit - is joining flatfair’s senior leadership team.
This news comes as one of flatfair’s founders, Daniel Jeczmien, steps down as chief operating officer.
“Despite the pandemic and associated lockdowns, I’m proud of how we have risen to the challenge by continuing to innovate and launch new products...Over the next year, I am confident that we will continue to grow both in the traditional private rental sector and in the expanding Build To Rent space” says chief executive Franz Doerr.
In another change to the company structure, general counsel Natalie Connor has been appointed to the board of directors.
Doerr continues: “Natalie’s counsel to the board has been vital to the company’s continued growth and success, and in particular to navigating the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, and I am delighted that I will now be working more closely with her alongside the rest of the senior leadership team. I would also like to welcome Gary, who I am confident will prove instrumental in ensuring the continued success of our No Deposit product.”
