“As we embark upon our next phase of growth we need to have a strongly defined alignment of roles and responsibilities that will help drive speed and intensity of execution,” said, Dhruv Agarwala, Co-founder & CEO, PropTiger.

Sunil Mishra in this position will lead the company’s new homes business including business development, sales and collections. Sunil will be based at the company’s Mumbai office. Sunil was previously the CEO of Karvy Private Wealth, the wealth management business of the Karvy Group, wherein he was instrumental in building up the wealth management and real estate broking businesses since inception.

With over two decades of experience, Sunil has been in key leadership roles at Bharti Airtel and Reliance Communications. He has also worked at WorldTel, a UK based private equity firm and KMPG Consulting. Sunil is an engineer with a PGDBM from IIM Bangalore.

Rohit Hasteer in his new role will be responsible for all facets of the company's human resources including talent acquisition and leadership development. Rohit will be based at the company’s headquarters in Noida. He brings extensive experience as an HR professional having worked with startups and fast growing businesses across multiple sectors.

Neeraj Chaturvedi will be responsible for building the company’s brand and leveraging its new acquisitions. Neeraj will be based at the company’s headquarters in Noida. He comes with eighteen years of work experience in general management and marketing both in India and abroad and has launched businesses and brands in FMCG, media and telecom.

Prashan Agarwal, Co-founder, has decided to pursue other entrepreneurial opportunities after more than 4 years with the company.

“I welcome Sunil, Rohit and Neeraj to the Proptiger.com team. They bring extensive experience in their respective functions and will provide the necessary leadership depth that will drive the next level of growth for PropTiger.com. These appointments will help us to consolidate our leadership position in the online real estate space and enable us to build on our strong track record of growth and execution”, said Dhruv Agarwala. “We acknowledge the contribution that Prashan has made to the company and we wish him the very best in his next endeavor”, added Agarwala.

“The online real estate business in India is growing at a very fast pace. Our promise of being a one-stop digital real estate platform for consumers and our unparalleled expertise in consummating transactions makes us ideally positioned to assume a leadership position in the space. In my role at PropTiger.com, I look forward to fuelling growth in revenues and providing consumers a world class service experience”, said Sunil Mishra.

“Having worked with several high growth organizations, helping them build their people management strategies, I am happy to be part of the dynamic team at PropTiger.com and will work together with the team in building the company into one of the best places to work”, said Rohit on his appointment as Chief Human Resources Officer.

“It is a very exciting time for online real estate portals and I have no doubt that we will redefine the industry and reduce the information asymmetry which exists in this sector. However, the customer problem extends beyond just information; the process of buying in itself is very tedious and unnerving for a customer. Thus with a full stack offering for customers, I believe PropTiger.com is in pole position to get their preference. So, I am very excited to be here at this juncture and am in the process of building the core marketing team and the extended team of media and creative agencies,” said Neeraj Chaturvedi.
