DIMICKE Le Masson, a qualified Chartered Accountant, has joined as Shojin’s Financial Controller. He has 12 years’ experience in the financial services industry at major firms, including PwC, Barclays Capital and EY consulting.
Le Masson will be supporting the financial, operational and risk management capabilities across the Shojin Group, ensuring it can securely scale as it seeks new real estate projects for its investors.
Following a year-long sabbatical, Jonathan Self has been appointed Head of Asset Management. Self is an integral component of Shojin’s origination team, responsible for identifying new investment projects and assessing their profitability and security.
Finally, James Mumberson has joined as Marketing Manager. With over 13 years of experience across multiple sectors, Mumberson is a specialist in marketing and customer acquisition – he will be executing multi-channel marketing strategies to help Shojin acquire new customers globally.
The company, which offers fractional investment opportunities in high-grade real estate developments, was the first of its kind to launch a digital platform in this sector of the property market. Recently valued at £49 million, Shojin has grown significantly over the past year, generating revenue of £2.22 million in 2022 – a 73% year-on-year increase – and an EBITDA of £0.45 million.
Shojin is aiming for a similar rate of growth in 2023, targeting revenue of £4.1 million. Its new appointments reflect the company’s ambitious plans to expand its number of live projects, return on investments and customer base.
Jatin Ondhia, CEO of Shoin, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Dimicke, Jonathan, and James to the Shojin team. These key hires across different segments of our business represent the need for Shojin to expand in all directions as we continue to pursue ambitious growth targets in the months and years to come.
“While the responsibilities of these roles naturally vary, they are equally essential for the success of our model. Given the great experience and track records each of the three brings to Shojin, I’m excited to see the impact they make.”
