Following the recent acquisition of BriefYourMarket, proptech supplier, nurtur.group has announced that Damon Bullimore has been appointed as the Chief Technology Officer of the group. Acting CEO and Co-Founder of BriefYourMarket, Bullimore will further enhance the organisation’s tech offering to the brands within the network.
Bullimore has held several notable senior positions, including CTO of Property Logic, MD of Ashley Adams, CTO of Fraxion, Founder of ScanGate and was also a Director of E Services at Epro (Royal Mail). As the CEO and Co-Founder of BriefYourMarket since 2008, Bullimore is responsible for the business’s growth, as well as its technology and product strategies. Under his leadership the business has developed into an award-winning organisation and one of the UK’s fastest growing technology companies. Bullimore has been instrumental in the continued transformation and development of the business through his strategic planning and foresight, an example of which is BriefYourMarket’s recent acquisition of Yomdel, an industry-leading live chat provider and KnowYourMarket, a market insight provider.
As CTO at nurtur.group, Bullimore will be responsible for enhancing and implementing the organisation’s product development roadmap, while assisting in further development of innovative digital and tech services to ensure all our products are best in class for our customers.

“I am very pleased to be able to be a part of an organisation such as the nurtur.group that is focused on innovation within the digital and tech space for the property sector. nurtur.group has the desire to become best in class with a laser focus on investment for all our proptech products, a vision I know we are all focused on achieving. The business is well positioned to deliver not just industry leading services, but also technology solutions to all its Members and Licensees. I hope that both my wealth of knowledge and extensive experience within the proptech sector can help to support the goal of the organisation,” says Bullimore.
Cooke adds: “It is great to welcome Damon to the team. His appointment to the senior team will allow nurtur.group to continue to focus on product and tech development for the property professionals within the network. Technology has always played an important role in the industry, none more so than in current times.”
