buying, selling and renting homes. I am honoured that the
Board has entrusted me with the responsibility of leading this dynamic company," said Kothari on his appointment.

Prior to joining Housing.com, Jason was the co-founder &
CEO of Valiant Entertainment. He holds a Bachelor of Science
from University of Pennsylvania's The Wharton School.

With presence in 50 cities and employing about 2,500
