Customer insights firm TwentyCi Group has appointed Mark Witherspoon – the former data services director at Zoopla and uSwitch owner ZPG – as non-executive chairman to help drive and support the next phase of the company’s growth.
Witherspoon brings 30 years of experience across retail financial services, property risk, data management and modelling in key non-executive roles and consultancy.
At ZPG, he was responsible for brands including PrimeLocation and Hometrack.
As a specialist in property data, TwentyCi claims to cover 96.6% of all UK property moves and publishes the quarterly National Property & Homemover Report, a real time review of the UK housing market. It also recently supplied the data for The Sunday Times ‘Best Places to Live’ homebuyers supplement.
Witherspoon will also join the board of TwentyCi group company View My Chain in a non-executive capacity.
He said: “This is a very exciting time for me to be joining the business which has already demonstrated huge potential in the data tech space. We will now be able to really focus on growing our share of our target markets and building on the excellent work that Ian and the team have delivered.”
TwentyCi founder and CEO Ian Lancaster added: “Attracting Mark to the team was a considerable coup and a reflection of how far TwentyCi has come in just six years, but this is an exciting time for the business and we now want to accelerate our growth even faster.”
