Housing.com appoints Jason Kothari as chief executive officer

Housing.com has announced the appointment of Jason Kothari as its new Chief Executive Officer. Kothari, who joined in the capacity of Chief Business Officer in August of this year, has been unanimously appointed by the Board of Directors.

Since August, Kothari has played an instrumental role on a number of key initiatives, including establishing a strong senior management team for the company by hiring Chief Financial Officer Mani Rangarajan, General Counsel Nandini Mehta, and Chief Marketing Officer Nikhil Rungta, a strategic partnership with MCHI and CREDAI, India’s largest real estate developer body, the launch of first-of-its-kind product BRAND FALCON, among others. 

“Housing.com is one of those rare companies that has the potential to impact millions of people in their journey of buying, selling and renting homes. I am honoured that the Board has entrusted me with the responsibility of leading this dynamic company.  We have built a world-class product and highly talented team, and it’s now time to rapidly progress towards our mission to build a world-class company,” said Kothari.

Prior to joining Housing.com, Kothari was the co-founder & CEO of Valiant Entertainment, where he led the successful acquisition and turnaround of former $65 million unit of video game company Acclaim Entertainment, which owns and controls a library of popular entertainment characters, resulting in a 50x company value increase and global media recognition calling the company “Marvel 2.0”.  The Company raised over $300 million from leading strategic investors like the former CEO of Marvel and Chinese media conglomerate DMG Entertainment.

Kothari holds a Bachelor of Science from University of Pennsylvania's The Wharton School, where he has served as a Guest Lecturer on Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital.
