Furniture search engine ufurnish.com has appointed David Marshall as its chief technical officer (CTO). David has long been a technology leader in online B2C, having previously held positions as CTO at restaurant booking platform Bookatable, and online travel industry stalwart Lastminute.com, where he was chief technical architect.

David joins the business on the back of a successful exit at Bookatable, which was recently sold to The Fork, a subsidiary of Tripadvisor.

David brings years of experience and insight in online search and discovery to ufurnish.com. He says: "I met founders, Deirdre and Ray, and instantly felt that this is the perfect business for me. The company has an extremely clear vision of becoming the market leader in search and discovery for home furnishings and I can bring a huge amount to the business to ensure it achieves that vision. It's such an exciting time to be in technology and working with such a high-growth business as ufurnish.com."

ufurnish.com founder and CEO Deirdre Mc Gettrick comments: "David brings a wealth of technical knowledge and capability to the ufurnish.com business, but importantly is also a great cultural fit. We are delighted to have him join our leadership team and to be on our journey."
