PropTech company Mobysoft has promoted its COO to the CEO position.

Paul Evans, who has been with the Manchester company for more than seven years, replaces Alex Karle, a former Thomson Reuters executive who joined as CEO in January 2020.

Mobysoft is a predictive analytics software provider to the social housing sector. Its software solutions, used by over 180 housing providers, claim to optimise income whilst treating tenants consistently, fairly and respectfully with its RentSense product.

It also claims to optimise the quality and consistency of their repairs service, increasing tenant satisfaction as a result, with RepairSense.

Evans has extensive experience within the technology & social housing sectors both directly and in conjunction with partners. He has also held executive roles in companies such as Sage & Flexera.

“Paul’s enthusiasm and passion for the Social Housing sector is apparent to anyone who meets him,” said Mobysoft chair Ken Briddon. 

“Paul has formed and now leads highly skilled and knowledgeable teams. Under his leadership I – and the rest of Mobysoft’s board – are highly confident that he will further accelerate Mobysoft’s growth and product development, while retaining our commitment to an excellent service ethos.

“I would also like to use this opportunity to sincerely thank Alex Karle for his years of commitment to bring the company where it is today, as he now has decided to step down from his CEO role. I wish him all the best of luck for the future.”

Evans added: “I am excited about the opportunity to lead the team at Mobysoft. Mobysoft has been very successful in combining customer and sector insight into technology solutions that deliver excellent outcomes for social housing providers and its customers. 

“In recent years Mobysoft has transitioned from a single product – the industry-leading predictive analytics product RentSense – to a multi-product business. 

“We work closely with our partners with a consistent objective of delivering proven outcomes. I am looking forward to further developing Mobysoft’s clear sector objective of providing best of breed technology and service for the social housing sector and their tenants.”
