“Greg brings to Juwai.com so much expertise in Australian and APAC property, finance and business that he is a treasure to have on our Board,” said Juwai.com Board Chairman Georg Chmiel.
“This year, Juwai.com has delivered rapid growth on its financial and operational metrics. We expect Greg to work closely with the existing Board members and the executive team on delivering on our vision for Juwai in 2019 and beyond.”
“I am delighted to join the Board. Juwai.com has a promising future, given the size of its addressable market, its lead over potential competitors and its role in the cross-border property sales process,” said Mr Paramor.
