Martin Samworth, the former EMEA and APAC CBRE Chairman, has joined the advisory board of the real estate AI and technology platform RE5Q.
In his 35 plus-year tenure at the firm, Samworth spent ten years as managing director of CBRE UK and five as managing director of EMEA, working across all real estate sectors at the highest levels.
Founded in 2018, RE5Q is a Big Data platform using Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning to enable the evolution of the real estate industry. Formed to address a lack of quality data for real estate asset managers, it is now revolutionising a number of traditional areas of the sector.
Part of Reech Corporations Group, RE5Q develops and scales solutions through a range of JVs and Consortiums and is already being applied to sectors including asset management, media and consulting services. It also has the potential to re-shape many others – such as the mortgage industry and insurance.
By joining the Advisory Board, Samworth will be supporting RE5Q as it continues to develop its proposition across the real estate industry segments. He will be acting as an ambassador for the business and demonstrating to potential users how it can be used to grow their business.
Martin Samworth said: ‘I have always been a huge advocate for change, evolution and digital enablement. RE5Q encompasses all these elements. It works with the real estate industry to develop genuinely transformative solutions – and this is needed now more than ever. I am looking forward to supporting the business as it drives this initiative forward.’
