Real estate group Domain has appointed a new Managing Director and CEO following the resignation of its previous leader in January.

The role attracts a base salary of $1.2 million as well as a $500,000 signing-on bonus for remaining in the role until 31 December 2018.

The incoming CEO was formerly the MD of Google Australia, and prior to that worked in several roles over a 15-year career — spanning corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and finance at Dakota Capital Partners, LEK Consulting, PepsiCo International and KPMG.

The Domain Board ran a comprehensive global search for the role, attracting a strong field of international and local candidates.

A spokesperson for the Domain board said they were delighted with the appointment, saying the successful candidate’s “career as a digital executive with deep experience in sales, strategy, operations and product and technology speaks for itself.”

Domain’s new appointee said they were “delighted to be joining the incredibly talented team at Domain and can’t wait to be part of the exciting growth journey ahead.”

Domain’s interim CEO will continue in the role until their successor takes the reins on 27 August.
