Aidan Rushby, the CEO and co-founder of British rental app platform Movebubble, has announced he will leave the company after seven years. Movebubble is currently looking for a new CEO to replace him.

Rushby (LinkedIn profile) helped launch the platform after graduating from Bristol University. The inspiration came from the difficulties he faced trying to rent a suitable property as a student. It also helped that he had experience as a branch manager for lettings and property management firm Ocean Group.

Movebubble launched in 2013 and became a portal for agents and landlords as well as an app for tenants to find their next property, listing around 25,000 properties. It is also a lettings platform for build-to-rent developers.

In October, Rightmove‘s former chairman, Scott Forbes, joined Movebubble as a director but left three months later for undisclosed reasons.

Movebubble has raised £3 million in funding from one of Spotify’s founders, VC firm Blackfinch and build-to-rent specialist Quintain Living (formerly Tipi), which has a 10% stake in the company

In a statement to The Negotiator, Rushby said he plans to start a new venture outside the property sector.
