Bertrand Gstalder (45) will become new CEO of SeLoger.com – the leading operator of online real estate portals in France and a company of Axel Springer SE – effective August 1, 2016. Roland Tripard (44), who has headed the company since 2008, will leave his post at the end of July.
Andreas Wiele, President Marketing and Classified Ad Models at Axel Springer: „SeLoger.com is the cornerstone of our real estate classifieds business. I am convinced that Bertrand Gstalder is the perfect choice for starting a new chapter in the success story of the company. Based on his entrepreneurial track record, his vast leadership experience gained as CEO of Fnac.com, and his familiarity with SeLoger.com, he is the right person to take the company into an exciting future. I am also extremely thankful to Roland Tripard for his excellent job in building up and growing SeLoger.com, and I wish him all the best for the new professional challenges that he would like to take up.“
Prior to joining SeLoger.com as General Manger, Bertrand Gstalder was CEO of the popular e-commerce platform Fnac.com and, before that, of Fnac’s ticketing and travel subsidiary. As entrepreneur, he co-founded the review site Cityvox.fr, which was bought by Yelp in 2014.
With around 30 million monthly visits to its core offering SeLoger.com, the company is the leading operator of online real estate portals in France. It was founded in 1992 and acquired by Axel Springer SE, the leading digital publisher in Europe, in 2011. Over the last years, SeLoger.com has extended its leadership into specialized sub-markets with dedicated brands, such as Belles Demeures, SeLogerNeuf, or Construire. Recent innovations also include LouerVite, the first platform dedicated to rental projects in France.
