Odhran Ginnity appointed to the board of Daft Media Limited
Daft.ie, Ireland’s leading property website, has appointed Odhran Ginnity to the Board of Directors.
Along with the appointment, Mr Ginnity who was the chief operations officer at the company, is taking up a new role as CEO of sister company Adverts Marketplace Limited. Adverts Marketplace is the company behind Adverts.ie, the fast growing marketplace app and website which has seen usage doubling in the last 12 months alone.
Commenting on the appointment, Eamonn Fallon, Co-founder of Daft Media said, “The successes in Daft over the last seven years have been driven primarily by Odhran and his team. Daft’s position as Ireland’s No.1 property website is now firmly cemented. We’re looking forward to seeing Odhran repeat this run in a new, high potential market”
Speaking about the opportunity, Mr Ginnity said, “Adverts.ie is a mobile-first platform for buying and selling items. It is in a great position to benefit from the explosion in mobile commerce that will happen in the coming years. Adverts.ie is already similar in size to Daft in terms of traffic and usage and thanks to the smartphone, the growth of the last 12 months looks set to accelerate”
Further to the move, Gordon Stewart, chief financial officer with Daft.ie, has been appointed acting CEO while the board oversees a recruitment process to fill the vacancy.
