Gilles Blanchard

Chairman Zameen.com & Co-Founder SeLoger.com

Gilles Blanchard is the Chairman of Zameen.com and Co-founder of Seloger.com, the largest real estate portal in France and a pioneering effort that started out on the French MiniTel – a Videotex online service accessible through telephone lines – in 1992 before moving to the World Wide Web in 1999.

Following its initial public offering (IPO) in 2006, Seloger.com made headlines when it was acquired by Axel Springer AG in a buyout in 2010 for $960 million. Today, Seloger is a wholly owned subsidiary of Axel Springer AG and the second-largest shareholder in the Asian online real estate giant iProperty Group.

In 2012, Mr Blanchard invested in and joined Zameen.com as Chairman. He is regarded as an authority in the property portal world and is no stranger to treading uncharted territory, with extensive experience of working in a variety of real estate markets across the world.
