After 20ish years in corporates including Blue Chip consulting, Banking and Big Oil I’ve begun the live of a startup. Through Konnexsion I seek to work with and use disrupting technology to digitise business operations. Mixing technology with a personal interest in property we have launched KPM, a Property Management solution enabling landlords, property companies and agencies manage rental portfolios. The solution seeks to effectively manage the assets (property, contents) as well as drive an improved collaborative experience throughout the tenancy: between agent, landlord, tenant and maintenance team.
