New head of Trade Me Property appointed

Nigel Jeffries is joining Trade Me as the new head of Trade Me Property.

Mr Jeffries was chief executive at CoreLogic (formerly known as PropertyIQ), the Wellington-based property information company. He has more than 25 years’ experience in the property, information and technology markets in New Zealand and beyond, including senior roles at Quotable Value and RP Data. He is also a director of ASX-listed BigAir Group, Australia’s largest fixed wireless broadband company.

Trade Me head of commercial Jimmy McGee said there had been intense interest in the head of property role. “The calibre of applicants has been fantastic, and we’re rapt that Nigel will be joining us – he’s an experienced senior executive with a great knowledge of the property industry in New Zealand.

“Nigel is coming on board at an action-packed time too. The market is hot in Auckland and Canterbury in particular, there are some exciting changes under way, and we’ve just had the busiest week in Trade Me Property’s history with an average of 138,000 domestic unique visitors to the site each day last week – over 100,000 more than our nearest competitor.”

Nigel starts at Trade Me later in the year.
