Six Independent Agents Join Our Strategic Board

We are very excited to announce the appointment of six independent representatives from across the estate agency community to our Strategic Board, chaired by Sarah Edmundson. The composition of the Board, which also includes co-founder Kenny Bruce, Chief Product Officer Tom Kirk, Chief Operating Officer Andrew Stewart and Brand Director James Kydd is now complete, with its first official meeting scheduled for early August.

The purpose of the Strategic Board is to act as a conduit between the Boomin management team and the estate agency community. A regular two-way dialogue with agent partners is essential to ensure Boomin is always focusing its considerable technology resources and innovation on solving agents most pressing problems.

Whether it is upgrades to existing unique features such as Sneak Peek, Secret Property, MatchMaker or Property Playground or the development of new groundbreaking functionality that is currently in the pipeline such as ChainMaker, the input from these agents will play an important role in shaping the end product. In turn these agents will engage with the wider agent community in order to deliver the most effective, innovative and seamless solutions on the market.

Joining the Strategic Board to actively champion the full spectrum of views across the estate agency community will be:

Reagan Bradley | Operations Director, Paramount Properties | Award winning multi discipline independent, London

Mark Manning | Managing Director, Manning Stainton | 19 branch chain across Leeds and West Yorkshire

Gareth Overton | Head of Residential Sales, Henry Adams | 16 branch office network spanning Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire

Charlie Perdios | Managing Director, Anthony Pepe | Five agency brand network across London

Wendy Peterman | Managing Director, Peterman | Family run, London-based independent agency

Asad Riaz | CEO of Location Location | North London focused independent agency

Sarah Edmundson, Chairperson of Boomin’s Strategic Board, said:

“I am delighted by the overwhelming response we have received from agents keen to participate in our Strategic Board and help to shape the innovative future of the industry. They recognise that Boomin has the DNA necessary to deliver a better experience for agents and consumers. This group of first class independent agents are reflective of the wider agency community and I am honoured and privileged to have their involvement. I am confident that together we will build upon a culture of continuous improvement.”

Mark Manning, Managing Director of Manning Stainton, said:

“We committed to the Boomin platform with a certain amount of trepidation but have been impressed by its alternative approach to the portal space and the potential of the tools and innovations the platform offers. Being able to oversee and participate in the development of Boomin to ensure that the interests of the agent community and consumer remains at its heart is a great opportunity.”
