Foreclosure data company RealtyTrac® has a new Chief Executive Officer, Jamie Moyle. This is the second time in less than a year that the company has appointed a CEO.
After Homefacts, the company which Moyle founded and was its CEO, was acquired by RealtyTrac, he came onboard as President and Chief Operating Officer.
RealtyTrac stated that appointing Moyle to the role of CEO position solidifies the company’s firm commitment to maintaining long-term growth, nurturing expansion into untapped areas of the market, and continuing its mission of dramatically improving the overall experience of transacting real estate.
Moyle replaces Brandon Moore, who according to RealtyTrac, will serve as a consultant to the company’s board of directors and focus on “intensive testing initiatives” and site optimisation.
Previous to Homefacts, Moyle developed online vacation rental sales retailer SkiWest, which he sold to Overstock.com in 2005.
“Armed with innovative technology, a formidable data offering and an aggressive roadmap toward expansion, I’m excited to lead RealtyTrac’s transition to the next level, starting immediately with visible enhancements to the RealtyTrac website aimed at making it a more usable tool for consumers,” said Moyle. “These enhancements, which are on track to be unveiled within the next few months, will provide real estate consumers and professionals with more of what they have come to expect from RealtyTrac — easier access to the information they need to effectively make the right decisions about real estate.”
“The acquisition of Homefacts earlier this year provided RealtyTrac with a unique opportunity to increase its capabilities and simultaneously tap into the entrepreneurial experience of Jamie Moyle,” said David Hull, Partner at Renovo Capital LLC, which acquired a majority stake in RealtyTrac in November 2011. “The entrepreneurial vision and operational expertise possessed by Moyle as Homefacts founder and CEO — along with his previous experience at SkiWest and Overstock.com — made him an obvious choice to step into this new role, building on the strong foundation established by previous CEO Brandon Moore.”
