The EAT report that James Cann, one of the Dragons on Dragons'Den, has been appointed Chairman of Look4aproperty.com.
There are the usual comments within the EAT forum, but I for one would like to welcome him to this space. The industry needs more people like James, Lee Bramzell, Dan Lee, Mike Carter, Ed at Nestoria to name a few. These are all entrepreneurs and innovators with the mindset to improve the industry and the end user alike and this industry needs them.
Mike at Zoomf mentions looking forward to round one between Miles Shipside of Rightmove and James. I too look forward to this as I have seen Miles speak about his company with about as much passion as a small child pulling the legs off a spider. Listen to the likes of James speak and they will be right behind the product/company, enthusiastic and constructively positive. I am predicting a knockout in round one.
Good luck to them.
As an aside, search for 'James Cann look4aproperty' in google and nothing of interest comes up. The EAT ought to have a look at their SEO as I would expect the next time you search this query, my post may just appear. Furthermore, look4aproperty doesn't appear either. The appointment is reported in their blog, but this was also a little hard to find??! Sign me up to the Board gents!
