Following rumours of developments at online agent eMoov, founder Russell Quirk has confirmed that two of his top people have been “asked to leave the business”.
One is Stephen Jury, the director of media and communications at eMoov, for whom Jury successfully achieved an extraordinary level of media coverage.
The other is Tariq Dag Khan, chief marketing officer.
Today Quirk told EYE: “I asked Stephen Jury and Tariq Dag Khan, formerly two of eMoov’s marketing management team, to leave the business this week.
“We’re a rapidly growing business with 130% year on year growth already in 2016 and, inevitably, there will be changes to our infrastructure as our needs change and grow.
“A number of our competitors seem to be going through similar transitions with both Purplebricks and easyProperty changing senior marketing management in recent months.
“It’s all part of an agile and ambitious approach to succeeding in this space.”
It is not known whether either Jury or Khan have actually left the business, or on what terms and arrangements.
However, we did ask Quirk about the importance of Jury’s role so far.
Quirk replied: “Stephen was responsible for one part of our marketing function and within which there are seven other roles overseeing separate channels.
“As the bulk of eMoov’s PR creative ideas come from me, I will continue to head up that important aspect ongoing.”
