EVORA Global has announced the appointment of Pradeep Menon as its new CEO, overseeing its global expansion and technological development.
Pradeep Menon, who joined as the company’s President last November, took the reins on May 1st. Pradeep was previously Managing Director at Refintiv. He was also co-Founder of RiskMetrics Group, a global risk management firm that he helped scale from a startup to an IPO, culminating in the firm’s sale to MSCI.
EVORA’s current CEO, Chris Bennett, will remain as Founder and Board member, acting as a Senior Advisor to the company.
Chris, who founded EVORA with Ed Gabbitas and Paul Sutcliffe in 2010, said Pradeep’s tech experience and previous roles make him ideal to lead the company into a period of planned growth.
“Pradeep has a rich experience of developing and growing tech companies and it is as a technology solutions company that we believe EVORA’s future growth lies. His wealth of experience and unique track record will help us accelerate our mission to deliver a low carbon economy to the real asset markets. I am very much looking forward to working with Pradeep to deliver on our ambitions.”
“I’m looking forward to spending more time with clients and others in the real estate market, explaining what I believe the future holds for our industry and how through collaboration we can achieve meaningful change. Meanwhile, I’m confident that Pradeep has the skills, knowledge and experience to drive the business forward.”
Pradeep said he joined EVORA as he wants to be part of a company dedicated to tackling climate change and making a real difference to the world.
“Chris and his team have built an exceptional company with values and a culture that I respect. If we are successful in our goals, this will not only be good for the company but also good for the planet. We operate in the real estate sector, which accounts for almost 40% of global emissions. Guiding the sector towards net zero is an ambition about which I’m truly excited.”
Pradeep’s appointment as CEO is part of a major restructuring of the business by Bennett and the other Founders, which began with an investment in October 2022 by Bridges Fund Management, Farview Equity and MSCI.
