Real estate player PropertyGuru has appointed Daan Prince as its new CFO, effective as of 6 June.
Prince brings 12 years of experience in the Asian and European technology markets, the bulk of which was spent at Royal Philips. His most recent position as Finance Director at Lumileds Singapore saw him help the company spin-off from Royal Philips.
His new role will be to oversee the financial and operational aspects of PropertyGuru across all its four markets in Southeast Asia. He will work alongside Group CEO Steve Melhuish and the board of directors to drive and execute the company’s rapid regional growth strategy.
“Daan possesses an impressive track record, technical skillset, commercial acumen, strong people skills as well as experience gained in highly competitive technology markets,” said Melhuish.
“Over the last 18 months, we’ve been working hard to build a world-class leadership team at PropertyGuru. Daan’s appointment completes that jigsaw and I’m confident that he will play a key role in PropertyGuru’s continued rapid growth.”
Said Prince: “I hope to bring fresh and innovative ideas on how PropertyGuru can continue that journey sustainably while harnessing operational efficiencies.”
