Carter is currently serving a six month notice period with his current employer and OnTheMarket will make further announcements regarding his joining date in due course.
Carter brings a wealth of finance experience and joins from AIM-listed Brand Architekts Group PLC, an international beauty brand business, where he has been CFO since 2020 and led the recent acquisition of main market listed Innovaderma. Prior to that, he was group finance and operations director at Technetix Group Ltd, a global technology company, and has also held financial roles at Alliance Boots, BSkyB Plc and Procter and Gamble. Carter trained as a chartered accountant with PwC.
Carter said: “OnTheMarket is widely recognised as a leader in the industry, and this is an exciting time to be joining the business. I look forward to working with Jason and the team to further differentiate the proposition and build a “one-stop-shop” for agents and housebuilders across the entire property ecosystem.”
In addition, OnTheMarket has appointed Simon Bullock as interim CFO with immediate effect to provide the finance function with experienced leadership between Clive Beattie’s departure on 27 January 2023 and Tom joining the Board. Simon has 30 years of finance experience, with more than 20 years at CFO level, including at Caxton FX Limited, AIM-listed Bonhill Group Plc, Merit Group Plc and Aurasian Minerals Plc. Simon will not join the Board of OnTheMarket.
Christopher Bell, non-executive chairman, said: “I am delighted to announce that Tom will join OnTheMarket as CFO. His proven experience will be a great asset to the team as we continue with our strategy of building a tech-enabled property business.”
