Each year, RISMedia showcases a group of outstanding individuals in the real estate industry for their accomplishments. We’re excited to announce that our CEO, Venkatesh Ganapathy, has been recognized as a 2020 RISMedia Futurist!
RISMedia Newsmakers are known for their steps toward creating a better real estate process, advocating for causes around the world, and dedicating themselves to leaving a positive impact on the real estate industry. As a RISMedia Newsmaker, Venkatesh joins 300 other esteemed inductees in accepting this award.
Venkatesh (or “Ven” for short) immigrated to the U.S. in 2008 to study at the Ohio State University. After college, Ven joined a management consulting company in Chicago, but changed career trajectories when the idea for MoveEasy came to him. Along with his close friend and business partner, Niraj Patel, Ven launched MoveEasy in 2013 and the rest was history.
Since founding MoveEasy, Ven led the company from a customer base of under 300 agents to over 55,000 agents today. In addition to working with esteemed real estate brokerages around the country, MoveEasy is continuing to make big partnerships on a daily basis. On the tech side of the real estate business, MoveEasy is constantly evolving. Our service integrates fully with Amazon Alexa and Google Home for incredible ease of access. In addition, MoveEasy was recognized by Inman News in ‘10 Tech Products We Loved In 2019’. Other recent awards include being recognized as the ‘Minority-Owned Business of the Year’ by Columbus Business First.
So what does 2020 hold for Ven and MoveEasy? The shift from a moving concierge company to an actual “lifestyle concierge” service is our newest and most exciting change. MoveEasy is dedicated to staying adaptable in order to bring the absolute best service to our clients. “I’m honored to be mentioned with some incredible real estate professionals and MoveEasy is truly excited for what’s to come.” – Venkatesh Ganapathy
Congratulations to Venkatesh and the rest of the 2020 RISMedia Newsmakers!
