Move Inc., the operator of realtor.com, has named Vineet Singh as realtor.com’s first-ever chief data officer.

In his new position, Singh will “focus on driving innovation to make it easier for homebuyers, sellers, and dreamers to find their perfect home” through data science and engineering.

“This new role underscores the vital importance of economic and consumer data to the online real estate industry,” said Move’s Chief Technology Officer Suhail Ansari in a press release.

“In addition to supplementing our comprehensive and accurate listing information with better market data, a focus on data science and engineering also enables us to drive a much more compelling and personalized user experience. Vineet brings the right mix of academic, research, analytics and data science experience to drive innovation that will help realtor.com demystify one of the biggest decisions most people will make in their lifetime.”

Singh says his short-term and long-term goals include rapidly evolving realtor.com’s mobile apps and websites to be more consumer friendly with deeper data analytics and partnering with real estate professionals to create new data products to help improve consumers’ home search experience.

“I am very excited about the commitment that realtor.com and Move Inc. have made to leverage data as a key differentiator to transform the experience of home buyers, sellers, and renters to be easy, stress-free, and even delightful,” says Singh.

“Clearly, consumers expect more real-time, intelligent, personalized interactions in this age of Apple’s Siri, Netflix movie recommendations, and self-driving cars and we intend to rise to the challenge with a world-class team of data scientists and engineers.”

Before his time at realtor.com, Singh led data mining, research and analytics efforts at the world’s top technology companies such as Intuit, Hitachi and IBM.

Furthermore, Singh holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, a master’s degree in computer science from MIT and a Ph.D. in artificial intelligence from Stanford University.
