OWNR, a San Francisco based disruptive real estate technology platform which has operationally established in the huge and untouched German residential real estate market, has appointed David Raabe as Chief Business Officer through a Kobolt driven executive search process. His mandate is to be a right hand-man to the Founder-CEO, Nils Kohle, providing strategic and operational support as OWNR ramps-up across the German and broader international markets.
David arrives from First Utility, where as Head of Corporate Development he was part of the team that sold the business to Shell Petroleum. David previously worked for Citi and GP Bullhound, before co-founding LQD Wifi, which was sold to Verizon.
Nils Kohle, the Founder-CEO of OWNR, said "David is an entrepreneurial and sophisticated executive, who brings a deep knowledge of scaling disruptive businesses and will help expand our capacity to drive strategic initiatives. Based on his international experience and his deep understanding of the markets I am really looking forward to working with him".
David in turn added, "OWNR has enormous ambitions to disrupt the way the residential property market works. It offers a transformational proposition for consumers. I am delighted to join Nils and his high calibre team in shaping this compelling proposition".
