Spotahome appoints Alan Burns as Chief Financial Officer


In 2019 Renaissance continued to work with Madrid based, digital property rental business Spotahome and their charismatic founder Alejandro Artacho. On the back of some amazing fund raising and hyper growth internationally, Alejandro was keen to expand his leadership team to include a CFO - and to pivot the full c-suite team to London from Madrid.

Spotahome is one of the most exciting high growth consumer internet companies to emerge in the past decade. The company’s mission is to reinvent real estate and change the way of renting forever by delivering the best consumer rental experience.

Operational in 17 countries and 33 cities the business employs more than 400 people and has recently completed the relocation of its senior team and HQ to London.

Working with Renaissance, Spotahome successfully hired Alan Burns as its new Chief Financial Officer. Alan joins from Photobox having spent the last eight years as Group CFO, leading that business through a period of significant growth and evolution, including the acquisitions of Moonpig, Hofmann, posterXXL and Greetz. Prior to that, he spent several years at Expedia.

“I couldn't be more excited to report that Spotahome has hired its first CFO. Few times in life you have the privilege to connect with someone so fast; and that was the case with Alan. I’m sure we’ll accomplish wonders together and wish him all the success with us!”.
