Simon Rose is chief executive of Commercial Property Guide, an independent commercial property portal.
Simon and his father, Stephen, originally acquired Commercial Property Guide as a CRM system, rebuilding it and marketing this to the Victorian commercial real estate industry. With a significant amount of listings acquired through their work with CRM agents, the Roses identified a gap in the market and launched Commercial Property Guide the portal.
Simon is also CEO of Rose Technology, a group of companies delivering digital communications solutions, whether it be online media, email marketing, catalogue management, call centre technology or software. Simon began in the dot-com industry in 1999 with carsales.com.au as the national dealer of sales.
