RealMassive, creator of an open data marketplace for the commercial real estate industry, announced Thursday it has appointed two new board members.
Lynn Atchison, chief financial officer of HomeAway and David Mather, managing partners of Ensys Capital, join Craig Hancock and Hank Seale, founder and chairman of Q2 Holdings.
“Lynn and David have so much experience,”Hancock said. “I can’t be more thrilled to have these professionals on our board.
Both have a proven track record of building and leading successful data and technology companies, he said. They will help RealMassive immensely on its quest to become the leading commercial real estate marketplace, he said.
RealMassive, founded in 2013, has 22 employees, and recently moved into an entire floor at 1145 W 5th St. Civitas Learning formerly occupied the space.
RealMassive, which is a disruptor in the commercial real estate industry, has grown quickly and its data is now available in 33 markets. The company has raised $10 million in funding and is using that on product engineering and to build out its sales and marketing organization, said Hancock. It will most likely seek additional funding next summer, he said.
The addition of Atchison and Mather will help the company grow even faster, Hancock said. Atchison has extensive experience working with high-growth startups as the CFO of HomeAway and as the vice chair of the Austin Technology Council’s board of directors. She also previously served as CFO of Hoover’s.
Mather, with 25 years of technology leadership experience, currently serves on the board of MTPV and managing part of Ensys Capital. He also previously served as president of Hoovers.
RealMassive is tackling a big market. The commercial real estate industry has been opaque with information, Hancock said. RealMassive has created an open, listing database of commercial properties. Its platform reduces costs, increases efficiencies and accelerates deal flow, Hancock said.
