Ainsley Duncombe formally oversaw the Middle East division of the daily deal giant – but has moved on to the UAE real estate portal to become the company’s first ever international business director. He will lead an aggressive expansion plan in order to reach multiple new markets – including Egypt and Lebanon.
Previously, Duncombe was a founder of UAE TV & Radio company Saluki Media. In addition, Duncombe has an impressive award-winning international track record across Europe, India and the US, notably at 118 Group where he directed call centres of over 60 personnel spread right across the globe – significantly increasing their profitability, the company said in a statement.
Renan Bourdeau, propertyfinder.ae managing director, said: “We are delighted that Ainsley has decided to come on board as our international business director as we know his proven outstanding leadership qualities, extensive sales and marketing abilities and entrepreneurial spirit will ensure we truly stamp our authority in the targeted new countries.”
Full details of propertyfinder.ae’s business expansion plans are set be officially unveiled in coming weeks, the company said.
“I am excited to be joining propertyfinder.ae at what is undoubtedly a pivotal moment in the company’s history,” said Duncombe. “This will be an exciting role.”
