We intend to change that, and Rahul Yadav's experience in harnessing the consumer housing market at via technology will add the key element. The cutting-edge and highly consumer-focused technology platform and support infrastructure we will build here will bring in a complete transformation of the residential property business," said Puri.
"I consider my appointment as Chief Product and Technology Officer at ANAROCK Property Consultants the logical next step in my career and it is of course a complete privilege to work with an outstanding industry leader like Anuj Puri. Given my product and technology background, I am fascinated by the highly tech-driven approach that ANAROCK is adopting for its residential real estate business and I already feel very much at home here. I am extremely excited as I look at the immediate and long-term future of this company as a result of these innovations," said Rahul. (As quoted by The Business Standard)
