ANDY BOTHA is set to build on his financial executive career as chief financial officer (CFO) of Zoopla, the online property website.
Botha will formally take up the new role on 18 April 2016 having spent three years as chief commercial and financial officer at notonthehighstreet.com.
Before that he spent five years at Betfair in a number of commercial roles and also had a stint as FD at lastminute.com.
He will join Zoopla’s recently strengthened senior leadership team, which includes Paul Whitehead, the newly appointed group strategy director, who switched from his USwitch chief commercial officer role.
