Vivara by GCO Ventures, a rental proptech launched in Spain earlier this year, has appointed Llàtzer Puigpelat Barrado as COO and Albert Playà Vidal as CTO.

Vivara has joined an already crowded field that includes the likes of Wolo, Zazume and JoinHome. It aims to match tenants with rental properties in 30 Spanish cities.

Puigpelat Barrado (above) joins Vivara from real estate asset manager Servihabitat, where he worked for more than five years — first as business transformation lead and later as head of the CEO office.

Earlier in his career, he was a manager at Deloitte and an IT outsourcing consultant at Indra.

Puigpelat Barrado has a degree in civil engineering and a master’s in civil engineering and mathematics from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.

Albert Playà Vidal comes to Vivara from Wallbox Chargers — a manufacturer of electric vehicle chargers — where he was head of software engineering (platform and business products) for three years. Prior to that, he was CTO at Trekksoft and, before that, Emailing Network.

Earlier in his career, he worked for marketplace operator Trovit for three years — first as principal software engineer and later as director of technology.

Playà Vidal has a degree in computer science from the University of Girona and a master’s in project management from EAE Business School.
