Helen O’Reilly, UK head of marketing and digital at Colliers International, has been appointed to the board of the UK PropTech Association (UKPA) to accelerate digital transformation in the property industry.
Helen was voted on to the board by members alongside James Dearsley (Unissu), Louisa Dickins (LMRE) and Kristjan Byfield (The Depositary).
Helen O’Reilly, UK head of marketing and digital at Colliers International, commented: “With over 400 members, the UKPA is rapidly becoming a real force within the property industry. Becoming a member of the association’s board is a great honour as PropTech is something that I am passionate about. Not only that but it is a great reflection of our values at Colliers where we strive to develop industry leaders, empowering them to think and act differently to drive exceptional results.”
Sammy Pahal, Managing Director of the UK PropTech Association commented “Running a board election and giving members of the industry a chance to get involved was vital for making the UKPA a membership organisation truly led by the members. This is about providing value to our members and to the wider industry, and I am therefore delighted to have a diverse group of individuals representing both PropTech’s and Property companies, the residential sector and commercial sector. Each board director has a unique perspective, experience and skillset to bring to the table and I am very excited to see what ideas they have in our first board meeting in January. I am also grateful to all 40 applicants for their willingness to volunteer time to support our objectives.”
The UKPA was set up in 2018 with the aim of encouraging engagement between PropTech and property businesses. Members include M7 Real Estate, Nuveen Real Estate and Altus Group.
