Atlanta-based apartment-listing provider RentPath named ParkMobile CEO Jon Ziglar as its new CEO, effective Aug. 16.
In his new role, Ziglar will be responsible for growing RentPath’s business by expanding its product and service offerings to help rental property owners connect with serious tenants, fill vacancies and manage properties.
Ziglar’s appointment follows the April acquisition of RentPath by online real estate brokerage Redfin. The incoming executive will shepherd the integration of RentPath’s rental listings onto Redfin.com to expand RentPath customers’ exposure to tens of millions of Redfin visitors, according to a press release.
“Jon is a world-class CEO, with the technology and sales expertise to grow a marketplace, the drive to compete and the vision to re-imagine the home rental experience,” Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman said in the release. “Hiring a CEO of Jon’s caliber is a major commitment from Redfin to the home-rental market. He’s a deeply values-driven person who’ll do right by our customers, and he’s here to win.”
At ParkMobile, which provides an app to help drivers pay for metered parking remotely, Ziglar helped grow the customer base by more than 800% while expanding its products beyond on-street parking to include event and airport reservations, electric-vehicle charging and toll payments, RentPath said.
Ziglar held executive positions at Ceridian, Elavon and Raymond James before joining ParkMobile.
