- Jan 22, 2016
New York—In a recent strategic move, the young and growing New York-based Reonomy has appointed Brooks Pettus as its first chief operating officer.
The Manhattan-based commercial real estate high-tech team is growing fast, as Reonomy’s CEO Rick Sarkis noted in prepared statements: “We created the role of Chief Operating Officer because 2016 is about high impact expansion … We are now moving into a high-growth phase, in order to offer this unique value to new users in new markets with new products. I am thrilled to have Brooks join us as he is the ideal choice to lead this charge. He comes to Reonomy with deep experience in growing start-ups into fully fledged businesses.”
Pettus boasts an entrepreneurial experience of over two decades, the second half of which he mainly dealt with building high-tech businesses from their early stages all the way to market maturity. During the past ten years, he has been CRO & SVP of Sales and Marketing for Beatport, COO of Qualvu, and CEO of FocusVision-acquired 24tru.
Pettus sees huge potential in his new role with the venture-backed company: “Reonomy is making big waves in the commercial real estate tech space, and I’m excited to be a part of its future … Reonomy has identified a unique way to aggregate data and to make it useful to their customers. They already have a product that customers can’t live without.”
