Nathan Stanogias 05 November 2016

There’s no stopping us! The Re-Leased team has been growing and we’re excited to introduce you to Richard, Sam, James, PJ, and Jack – our UK Dream Team based in Oxford Circus, London. Read our new team spotlight below!

Jack Hammond

Jack has joined the Re-Leased team in London to help build out the sales development process. He is excited about working in a fast paced environment and playing his part in a growing company with Re-Leased.

Originally from Christchurch, Jack was studying during the 2010-11 earthquakes and worked as a structural engineer. He moved to London in 2016 seeking new challenges in the start-up world.

An engineer at heart; he spends his spare time building apps, and can be observed dragging his girlfriend to look at construction sites on the weekends. Jack is enjoying living in London and taking advantage of the various galleries available and the vibrant music scene. Find Jack on LinkedIn or drop him an email.

PJ Gerbes

PJ comes from a technology and property background which includes ten years’ experience in various roles at Trade Me, a leading property classified website. Over that time she honed her customer service skills, became a master at advocating for customers, and discovered a passion for tech-driven outcomes. She’s built a personal brand based on customer focus, creativity, and a good old kiwi can-do attitude.

After a brief stint at a London housing association, PJ is excited to get back into the tech scene with a fast-paced, no holds barred company like Re-Leased. After seeing the opportunity in the PropTech industry, she was keen to dive in and get involved. In her new role as Customer Success Manager, PJ’s main focus is making things better for the customer and ensuring that they love the product as much as she does.

A bit like a chameleon PJ is known to change hairstyles as often as the weather and enjoys dabbling in a bit of make-up artistry and nail art. Outside of work you can find PJ at live music events or exploring the many wonders of London and beyond. Find PJ on LinkedIn or drop her an email.

James Higgie

James has joined Re-Leased’s London office, heading up the Sales function for the United Kingdom and global markets.

The decision to join Re-Leased was an easy one, he’d been scoping the UK market looking for a company that was the preeminent product in an industry that is asking for disruption. He found this opportunity with Re-Leased.

Previously James held a number of roles with another SaaS company Figured, an Agricultural financial tool which integrated with Xero. James was part of the team that took the company from startup, to established award-winner across a number of markets. Most recently James was based in Australia where he looked after the NSW and Victoria market and was part of the Commercial roll out of Figured in both the NZ and Australian markets, and early stages of the push into the USA.

James has a real passion around bringing disruptive technology to industries which have been historically neglected by providers, namely AgriTech and PropTech.

Away from work like any good Kiwi he spends most waking hours following the movements of the All Blacks and is something of a test-match cricket tragic. Now based in the UK James is looking to explore as much of Europe as the weekends allow. Find James on LinkedIn or drop him an email.
