Real estate listings company Domain has announced the appointment of Jason Pellegrino as its new CEO and managing director.

Pellegrino joins Domain from Google, where he has been managing director for Australia and New Zealand since May 2016 and a member of the tech giant’s Asia-Pacific regional leadership team.

Domain chairman Nick Falloon said: “We are delighted to have Jason join Domain as CEO. Jason’s career as a digital executive with deep experience in sales, strategy, operations, and product and technology speaks for itself.

“His leadership acumen and track record for inspiring and driving performance at Google will greatly assist him to take Domain and its many talented people into an exciting next stage of growth.”

Commenting on his appointment, Pellegrino said: “I am delighted to be joining the incredibly talented team at Domain and I can’t wait to be part of the exciting growth journey ahead.

“I have spent close to a decade with Google and consider myself enormously lucky to have worked with fantastic colleagues, partners and customers, dealing with the rapid shift in technology from desktop to smartphone and now the AI powered world ahead.

“Throughout this time, I have always prided myself on supporting the growth of incredibly strong teams and establishing transparent and trusting relationships with partners and customers – something I am looking forward to continuing as I join Domain.”

Domain said in a statement to shareholders that it ran a comprehensive global search for the role, attracting a strong field of international and local candidates.

Falloon will continue as Domain’s interim executive chairman until Jason joins Domain on Monday 27 August, after which time he will resume his role as non-executive chairman.
