Real estate property portal REA Group and its Australian CEO, Jamie Pride, have parted ways. Pride was with the company for less than a year and his departure apparently is effective immediately.

We’re not quite sure why Pride had to go. REA Group posted increased revenues for the first half of the Australian financial year. The Australian part of REA’s business accounted for 80 percent of the company’s revenues, delivering $73 million. That’s a year on year growth of 33 percent and a 6-month growth of 11 percent.

Pride joined REA in April 2008 and was responsible for all Australian operations across five brands: RealEstate.com.au, RealCommercial.com.au, Property.com.au, RealHolidays.com.au and HubOnline.com.au.

Prior to joining REA Group, Pride was based in Singapore for four years as the vice president, Asia Pacific Services at Salesforce.com. He has also held positions at Red Hat Software, Fujitsu, and Cisco Systems.
