Fig Puts Money Into When You Move
Proptech platform When You Move launched to market today, fully automating the end-to-end process of UK conveyancing. The latest tranche of funding is bolstered by prominent proptech VC, Fig, the backers of Smartr365, MOGO and Property Detective, bringing the total amount raised to £3m. Beyond Fig’s raise, funding has been secured across a hybrid network of friends and family, private HNW investors and incumbent shareholders.
With directed expansion plans in place for 2018/19, the finance will be used to build out the solution’s customer excellence teams and scale up the development team. With this in mind, key hires include Dan Rodgers, CRO, and Rob McKellar, Head of Conveyancing. Rodgers joins When You Move with an extensive background in B2B tech sales, playing pivotal roles in building global software and data businesses. Before joining When You Move as Chief Revenue Officer, Rodgers led commercial functions for tech businesses in the UK and across EMEA. He began his career within Thomson Reuters, holding numerous client facing roles before moving into management positions. Rodgers has extensive experience in building, managing and measuring high performing customer-centric functions focused on delivering growth. McKellar brings with him a wealth of legal and operational experience in residential conveyancing in both corporate and traditional practices, and has headed up legal departments delivering thousands of completions each month.
Simon Bath, CEO and Founder said, “This is a really exciting time for the business, from launching in a range of new locations to increasing the number of features that we offer. We’ve utilised a number of investment rounds to achieve some great milestones that we’re really proud of, and today’s launch marks a significant shift in our growth plans. When You Move is primed to enable conveyancing firms, mortgage brokers and estate agents to effortlessly provide information to one another and, in doing so, free them up to perform the important jobs rather than filing paper work and chasing other parties.”
