Proptech firm Offerpad is set for “meteoric growth” and has onboarded a handful of C-suite executives to help it reach its goal of expanding beyond its iBuying business.
The company has made major appointments in the past few weeks, the latest being the addition of Steve Johnson as its new chief operating officer. Johnson joined Offerpad’s new president, Andrew Low Ah Kee, along with chief growth officer David Connelly and chief legal officer Ben Aronovitch – all of whom were brought on board last week.
In a statement, the firm said that the move is “designed to help position and prepare Offerpad for even more meteoric growth through Q4 2020 and into 2021.” Offerpad expects Johnson to help grow the offerings and concierge services of its Real Estate Solutions Center.
The exec, whose industry experience spans more than 25 years, will lead Offerpad’s operations, as well as oversee the development of its product team. Johnson most recently served as managing director and president of global finance company InvestorForce.
“Steve and all the new executives who have recently joined the team at Offerpad are key to pushing this company forward with even more strategic, efficient and focused purpose,” Offerpad CEO and founder Brian Bair said. “With their added support, we look forward to the successful execution and implementation of our aggressive growth initiatives and plans.”
Offerpad has created four new positions to assist Johnson in advancing its mission to provide its customers with the easiest way to buy or sell a home. The iBuyer hired industry veterans Ted Best as senior vice president of product management, Scott Daggert as vice president of customer experience, Matthew Brohn as vice president of strategic initiatives, and Abbie Mirata as director of training and operational performance.
“Offerpad is a unique company with a unique vision and tenacious drive to give home sellers and buyers the best experiences in real estate,” Johnson said. “The company has achieved a great deal in its first few years, and I believe that with our renewed focus on operational effectiveness and these great new hires, the sky is the limit for our brand and business.”
