We're very pleased to announce that Johnny Horgan has joined BidX1 as Managing Director of Europe to oversee our continued international expansion. Johnny joins us from CBRE Ireland, where he led the Capital Markets team for the last five years as their Executive Director.

At CBRE, Johnny was heavily involved in high-profile property deals and developed the team to become one of the market leading real estate and investment agencies in Ireland. Prior to that, he was a member of the Executive Management team at Irish Life Investment Managers for five years and a founding partner of Warren Private, a private equity firm that focused on acquisitions and property management for European, Irish and UK assets.

Horgan has over two decades of experience working in real estate investment. He also holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University College of Cork and has completed the Advanced Management programme at INSEAD (Paris). 

Stephen McCarthy, Founder & CEO at BidX1, said: “Following the successful launch of our digital trading platform in South Africa and our expansion into Cyprus and Spain, we have been provided with an exciting opportunity to grow our best-in-class team. We are looking forward to welcoming Johnny to BidX1 and benefitting from his wealth of expertise across European markets.

“In the past year BidX1 has had over 1.7 million web visits from 185 countries, showcasing the appetite for a transparent, data-driven digital property sales platform.  BidX1 is gaining momentum across our international footprint and we are looking forward to Johnny leading further expansion into Europe.”
