KUALA LUMPUR, March 13 (Bernama) -- Rea Group has apppointed Henry Ruiz Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Rea Group Asia, with immediate effect.

In a statement today, Rea Group said, Ruiz, currently the group's Chief Digital Officer, would oversee its Asian businesses, including iProperty Group across South-East Asia and Chinese property site myfun.com.

"He would continue to report to Rea Group CEO, Tracey Fellows, and retain his position on the Board of PropTiger, the group's joint entity in India," it said.

Fellows said Asia was a key region in the company's long-term growth strategy as it looked to transition those markets to digital real estate advertising.

"Ruiz's expertise, knowledge and experience in delivering world-class digital products and consumer experiences is the perfect grounding to drive this digital transformation.

"Our purpose is to change the way the world experiences property, and we have an exciting opportunity in this region to do just that. We'll do it through creating great products, for the benefit of consumers and driving value for customers. Henry is very well placed to step into this role," said Fellows.
