Former MoneySupermarket exec joins Purplebricks


Gareth Helm, a former Brand Director of Chester’s MoneySupermarket, has joined the board of Purplebricks.

He will join the tech-led estate agency as an independent Non-Executive Director, starting in October.

“I am incredibly excited to be joining Purplebricks as a non-executive director,” he said.  

“I am confident the Group has a valuable brand which is certainly relevant in today’s market. I look forward to contributing to the discussion in the Boardroom and as a source of support and advice for the ELT [executive leadership team].”

Helm has more than 30 years’ marketing experience, having joined Zoopla as its first ever Marketing Director when he left MoneySupermarket. He has also held senior roles at McDonalds, Mars and Homeserve.

He is one of 2 new Non-Executive Director appointments at Purplebricks, with Adrian Gill, the ex-Finance Director and Group Commercial Director of Connells also joining the group.

“I am absolutely delighted that Adrian and Gareth are joining our Board. Since becoming chief executive in April, my priority has been to put in place the strongest possible executive leadership team (“ELT”) that combines the right capabilities, experience and mindset I believe we need to succeed in delivering our turnaround plans,” said Helena Marston, Purplebricks’ Chief Executive.

“The subsequent appointment of Adrian and Gareth to our Board is complementary to our ELT, providing additional industry and marketing expertise which will be invaluable to me and our Board, as well as providing positive challenge for the ELT.”
