PropTech Chief Commercial Officer role based in London, UK

Commercial buildings consume huge levels of energy, a staggering amount of which is wasted. In the UK a typical building is responsible for nearly 4 times the carbon emissions it was designed for. This is because the systems controlling energy consumption are highly complex, prone to error and performance is opaque.

Our client is a UK-based, CleanTech and PropTech start-up, spearheading the green revolution – transforming buildings to become healthier and smash their carbon emissions.

Their mission is to empower property owners and facilities managers to better understand their buildings and to provide actionable recommendations to improve on their ESG targets. Their proprietary software and innovative technology collects and analyses building data to offer digestible and user-friendly recommendations while providing a collaborative tool for on-site teams. They currently stream over 1 billion data values per month from 1.2 million m2 of real estate and clients include Natwest, Legal and General, Great Portland Estates and The Crown Estate. Their revenues are currently over £1.2 million / year.

Our client has won 14 awards in 5 years covering property technology, cleantech, building controls, smart cities, green buildings, energy, innovation and data analysis. They have been specifically mentioned in the UK parliament, showcased at COP, and are involved in multiple UK government consultations and advisory groups.

The company is currently raising capital to accelerate growth in the UK and is preparing for a Series A and global expansion in 2022 – 2023. The technology is well established in the UK and has been tested in the US and in continental Europe. The team is confident of its relevance globally.
