Rightmove, the online property portal, has appointed Andrew Fisher as its new non-executive chair.
Fisher takes the hot seat from Scott Forbes who retires at the end of December after 14 years chairing the company.
Fisher was previously chief executive and executive chair at Shazam, the music app, and currently chairs the remuneration committee at Marks & Spencer. He has also served as a non-executive at Merlin Entertainments, the amusement park operators.
Rightmove, with a market cap of around £5.4bn, made headlines in recent weeks after provoking the ire of estate agents over the fees it charges for advertising.
Half-year results published in July showed both revenues and profits up 10% on the same period last year. Revenues stood at £143.9m and profits at £108.2m.
However, the company conceded that estate agents, its main clients, had seen a drop in transactions during the period.
