Australia-based property vertical Domain has appointed a new chief revenue officer in former Google and Uber executive John Foong (LinkedIn profile). He will replace outgoing chief commercial officer Tony Blamey.
Foong previously spent 12 years at Google, as the director of scaled partnerships and programs for Google Cloud, and then the global director of partner sales and strategic alliances at Google and then two years as the global head of account management and customer engineering at Uber.
“I am excited to see a global leader of John’s calibre return to Australia, bringing with him the experience that our business needs right now, as we continue the next phase of our marketplace strategy,” Domain CEO Jason Pellegrino said.
“John’s outstanding track record in rapidly scaling large digital solution sales and customer success teams will be invaluable as we double down on the support we offer our customers and the agent community.”
Foong returns to Australia to take up the role of chief revenue officer at Domain on September 27, where he’ll be responsible for sales operations, go-to-market strategies, and customer experience of Domain’s property marketplace, in addition to its agent solutions division.
“It’s been great to see Domain accelerate its digital-first solutions to support customers and agent partners at every stage of the property journey. In addition to leveraging my global experience in these areas, I am particularly excited about engaging with our hard working agent community, and developing Domain’s 350-person strong sales team as leaders and expert advocates,” Foong said.
Foong’s appointment will apparently replace the role of chief commercial officer, held by Tony Blamey. No announcement has been made about Blamey’s departure from the company, though Pellegrino issued his thanks for Blamey’s service.
“Tony’s career journey at Fairfax and Domain has been deeply aligned with Domain’s success. We thank him for the critical role he has played in Domain’s successful journey to date and wish him well for his future career.”
