Proptech payment firm Flatfair, which has developed a 'no deposit' solution for landlords, tenants and agents, has appointed Francois Tual as co-CEO of the business.
Joining the senior management team at the end of August 2022, Tual's role will see him take charge of the firm's strategy and finance.
He was previously chief capital officer at Habito, the award-winning digital mortgage broker, having built his career in international banking with firms including Goldman Sachs and BNP Paribas.
Tual will join co-CEO of business operations Gary Wright and chief technical officer Bartosz Alksinin to bring the financial expertise needed to further grow the business.
At the same time, Franz Doerr, one of the firm’s founders, will stand down as a director.
Wright, co-CEO of Flatfair, said: 'Francois joins us at a truly exciting time for the business. It’s been a record year of results for new signings and revenue, and his financial expertise will prove instrumental in building on these successes. We’re delighted to welcome him to the team.'
Said Tual: 'Flatfair has already done so much to make renting fairer and easier for thousands of people, and I’m thrilled to be able to oversee the company’s finance and strategy in order to bring the benefits to thousands more.”
Said Doerr: 'I’m grateful for being part of the founding team that turned an idea into what is now a multi-million revenue business that benefits thousands of renters and landlords.'
