MyHomeGroup, owner of SellMyHome.co.uk and RentMyHome.co.uk has appointed its first Head of Market Insight to lead in-house property market research projects.
Fionnuala Earley, formerly Chief Economist at Countrywide, joins on a consultancy basis to provide all three of MyHomeGroup’s business streams - sales, lettings, property management – with market analysis which will feed into the strategy and direction of the group.
Prior to joining MyHomeGroup, Fionnuala spent more than five years at Hamptons and Countrywide as Residential Research Director and latterly as Chief Economist. Before that, Fionnuala was Senior Economic Advisor at The Royal Bank of Scotland and Chief Economist at Nationwide. Fionnuala also serves as a Non-Executive Director at Bath Building Society and is a highly respected and well known housing market commentator.
Fionnuala commented: “I’m delighted to have joined the MyHomeGroup at this very interesting time in the housing market. I’m looking forward to representing them as a spokesperson and helping to provide insight to the group and its clients on housing market issues.
Will Clark, Managing Director at MyHomeGroup, commented on the appointment: “It is a complete privilege to welcome Fionnuala to the team. In a short space of time her insights have added incredible value to the team here as well as our clients. We are excited about the future!”
Fionnuala’s appointment is the second heavy-weight appointment the MyHomeGroup has made this year. In the Spring, Manoj Varsani was appointed as Chief Technology Officer further to a multi-million pound investment into MyHomeGroup from Guinness Asset Management’s Enterprise Investment Scheme Fund.
