The Group also today announces that Stephen Morana has informed the Board of his intention to step down from his role as Chief Financial Officer.A succession plan to replace Stephen is well advanced and the Company plans to announce his successor in due course. Stephen will continue in his current role until his successor joins to ensure a smooth transition.

Alex Chesterman, Founder & CEO of Zoopla Property Group, said: "Stephen and I have worked closely together for almost three years. During this time he has played an important role as part of our leadership team and has shown huge personal commitment. He helped to prepare the Company for its life as a public company, culminating in our successful IPO in 2014. He has been an outstanding CFO and whilst we will be sad to see him move on, we understand his desire to pursue new opportunities and wish him every success in his future endeavours."

"I am extremely excited about our strategic plans for 2016 and beyond. The acquisition of uSwitch marked a significant step in our mission to become the consumer champion at the heart of the home, but there remains much more to do. That's why I confirmed my long term commitment to the Group last August."

Stephen Morana commented: "I will be sorry to leave such a great business. Alex has been an inspirational leader and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with him. I feel proud to be leaving Zoopla Property Group in such good health, with an outstanding leadership team and a strong strategy to drive future growth."
