PropTech company Fixflo ( which provides repairs and maintenance software used in hundreds of thousands of properties, has announced the appointment of Michael Murphy MBE as non-executive Chairman and the formation of a heavyweight Advisory Board.

Fixflo has also announced a formal Advisory Board comprising John Davis (former CFO of Yell Group plc and Pearson Inc), Mike Wroe (former CFO of JustEat), Tim Ward (former marketing director of the Financial Times) and serial entrepreneur Steve Pankhurst who co-founded Friends Reunited.

Michael Murphy said: “Fixflo is a hugely exciting business which is already adding value to thousands of businesses around the world and I’m looking forward supporting the team on their growth journey.”

Rajeev Nayyar, Managing Director of Fixflo commented on today’s announcement:

We’re absolutely delighted that Michael has agreed to lead our board and that John, Mike, Tim and Steve are to become formal advisors to Fixflo. We’ve been leaning on advice from Michael and others on an informal basis over the past months, in some cases, years. At this stage of the company’s maturity, it made sense to formalise arrangements and assist us in the next phase of our growth.

2017 was a record-breaking year for Fixflo in terms of the number of people we helped with property repairs and maintenance management, and we had the one millionth repair managed through our systems in the UK. We also meaningfully expanded beyond the residential property sector that Fixflo is best known for, into providing maintenance solutions for property companies managing assets including petrol stations, offices and industrial estates in different countries around the world.

Having delivered 37 system upgrades during the course of 2017 at no additional cost to our clients, through 2018 we remain relentlessly focused on supporting our clients in delivering service excellence.

To all of our clients who have supported us on this journey thank you and please make sure your teams know how to get the most out of your Fixflo system through our free training program.”
