Australian reviews, ratings and rankings website for real estate agents RateMyAgent has made two new senior hires to support its ambitious plans for international growth in 2020.
Senior marketing executive Emma Nguyen joins as head of marketing and will lead RateMyAgent’s international marketing operations after departing a similar role at Typsy earlier this year.
The role will play be central in ensuring RateMyAgent becomes an "Australian household name" and expanding into new markets.
“As we’re in the midst of our US expansion, these roles are fundamental in maximising market opportunities and increasing brand trust and recognition both overseas and in Australia,” RateMyAgent CEO Mark Armstrong says.
“We’ve been on the hunt for a few months for the right people and we couldn’t be more excited to work with Emma and Stephen. We hope to see them become integral parts of the RateMyAgent team and help shape the business well into the future."
Reporting directly to the chief operating officer, Michael Davey, Nguyen will be tasked with building, developing and leading RateMyAgent’s marketing team and operations.
Having headed up marketing operations across Asia-Pacific, European, UAE and North American markets respectively, Nguyen has previously also held roles at Morgan McKinley and Virgin Pulse.
Also securing a leadership position is Stephen Watson, who joins as head of sales. Watson will drive the set-up and development of the company’s ANZ sales operations.
Watson will work closely with the executive team to accelerate sales performance and maximise market opportunities in a time of rapid expansion.
