Property technology company PropertyGuru Group (PropertyGuru) has today announced the promotion of Genevieve Godwin to the role of Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO).

Based in Singapore, she moves up from the role of HR Director, in which she helped strengthen the company's talent growth and development across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam for over 1,200 employees.

Through that role, she also played a key part in enhancing the employee experience through improvements in the company's HR tech; upgrading the firm's recognition & benefits programmes to create a more inclusive and supportive work environment, and, most significantly, bringing to life a culture of learning at PropertyGuru.

Moving forward, as CHRO, Godwin will continue to focus on all these areas as well as further enhance employee learning and development. In 2020, she will work with senior management and the board of directors to further develop a holistic approach to talent, encompassing the launch of PropertyGuru's employee value proposition and a focus on integrated talent development across the group.

Commenting on this, Hari V Krishnan, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, PropertyGuru Group, said: "I am delighted to announce Genevieve's elevation to Group CHRO.
