Leading estate agency and property services provider Connells Group announces Jon Notley has rejoined the business in the role of Group Commercial Director.
Jon joins in a permanent capacity following a six month stint as Interim Project Director at the time of the Countrywide acquisition, where he supported the successful integration of the business. In his new role, he takes on a range of responsibilities including heading up the Group’s conveyancing businesses, managing key commercial relationships, supporting the continued growth and development of the Group by identifying and leading acquisition and investment opportunities. Jon will take the lead on significant projects across the Group and also joins the Connells Ltd Board.
“I am extremely proud and delighted to join Connells Group on a permanent basis after helping with the Countrywide acquisition in 2021,” says Jon. “I‘ve known the business for almost twenty years and have always been impressed by the quality of the team and their determination to succeed. I look forward to doing my bit to realise the huge opportunity we have in front of us.”
“This is a significant appointment for Connells Group and we are thrilled to welcome Jon back to the business, further strengthening our senior team,” says CEO David Livesey. “Jon will add value for us in all areas and we look forward to benefitting from his deep understanding of the property industry and proptech world to ensure we continue to innovate and lead the profession.”
Jon’s previous roles include, most recently, CEO of Zero Deposit which he co-founded in 2017. He joined Findaproperty as sales director in 2005 shortly after its acquisition by Daily Mail Group, which was merged with PrimeLocation in 2008 to form the Digital Property Group (DPG), before moving to Zoopla in 2011 where he played a key role in the merger of Zoopla and DPG and Zoopla’s subsequent IPO in 2014.
