Placester Welcomes Allen Bonde, SVP Marketing, and Chad Kelly, VP Finance
By Matt Barba
Between recent agreements with major real estate franchises, our continued participation in the NAR’s REALTOR Benefits® Program, and raising our total investment to over $50 million, Placester is poised to grow even more quickly in 2016. To help us scale our business and our brand to keep pace with this growth, I’m pleased to announce that we’ve added two new members to our leadership team: Allen Bonde (top left) and Chad Kelly (right).
As Senior Vice President of Marketing, Allen Bonde will play a key role in helping Placester spread its message to a wider audience of real estate professionals and organizations. An early proponent of self-service apps and data-driven marketing, Allen was most recently VP of Product Marketing & Innovation at OpenText, Canada’s largest software company.
As Vice President of Finance, Chad Kelly will help Placester put our most recent funding to work, keeping Placester on a path to rapid but responsible growth. A CPA with two decades of financial and operational experience, Chad comes to Placester from Leaf, where he served as Vice President, Finance.
We’re so excited to have Allen and Chad with us as we continue our efforts to give real estate professionals more and better tools to market their businesses on the web. If you’re interested in joining us, check out our full list of open positions at Placester’s careers page.
