Richard Howells is Chief Executive Officer of leading commercial property portal PropList.
With a true passion for data, coupled with decades of experience implementing revolutionary software into a vast spectrum of industries, Richard controls both the day-to-day business activities and the technological aspects of PropList.
The portal’s functionality and user interface are designed to be as simple as possible, with the buyer at the heart of all elements.
Having worked within, and headed up, software, administration and business support teams in commercial property for 15 years, Richard has seen every success and pitfall associated with technology in commercial property. He has helped develop PropList to become what he believes is missing in the sector – a commercially dedicated listing site that is designed for the user, that still listens to the agent’s needs.
Prior to Richard’s property experience, he worked for a leading logistics company, moving it into a new era by introducing route planning software, signing pad technology and designing a bespoke database. The successes of his software implementation so early in his career sparked his passion for problem-solving via IT.
Having been part of PropList since spring 2018, Richard firmly believes that in five years’ time, this venture will have spread overseas reaching an international market. He is also looking forward to being at the helm of further enhancements, as he works alongside agents to find out what they need to achieve greater results.
