Gemma Coles Appointed CEO at Kyero

Kyero, the UK-based international property portal, today announced the appointment of Gemma Coles as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with immediate effect.

Gemma takes over the leadership role from Co-Founders Martin and Louise Dell who set the business up in 2003 with an initial investment of just £5,000 – Kyero has since grown to become the largest international property portal in the UK, with over 750,000 properties for sale across Europe, and a turnover of £4 million.

It also has relationships with over 10,000 estate agents across Spain, Portugal, Italy and France, including Re/Max, Century 21, Engel & Völkers, Coldwell Banker, IAD and Taylor Wimpey.

Louise Dell, Kyero Co-Founder, comments:

“Gemma has delivered consistent and impressive growth across the business over the last three years despite a series of significant challenges within the international property market. At the same time, she has always ensured that Kyero’s founding ethos as a business with heart and soul has always been at the forefront, not least through her leading the work to achieve B Corp status in 2022.

“The potential for the business moving forward is significant as we look to strengthen and expand our foothold in all four territories, and with Gemma at the helm, and the exceptionally talented global team working alongside her, we are confident that we will achieve our ambitious growth targets over the coming years.”

Gemma Coles, CEO, Kyero, adds:

“Despite the significant recent growth of the business, we remain nimble and well-positioned to respond to the considerable opportunity that exists in the market, particularly as data suggests that buyer confidence in the overseas market is high compared to some domestic markets.

“I am delighted to be taking on the role of CEO, and proud to be driving growth with such a talented team.”

Coles joined the company as Managing Director in 2020 having previously been MD at IPG Mediabrands-owned digital consultancy Mubaloo where she led a 50-strong team and built strategic partnerships with the likes of Apple and EE, overseeing key client accounts including Channel 4, RAC, Met Office and Hargreaves Lansdown. She also helped to position the company for acquisition by IPG Mediabrands. Since joining Kyero she has delivered revenue growth of 50% despite the significant market challenges of both Brexit and Covid-19.

A key founding principle of Kyero is to conduct business in a socially responsible way and offer its employees a better work-life balance. As well as achieving B-Corp status in 2022, it supports Spanish homelessness charity Hogar Si RAIS, and its global team is fully remote.
