DMG Information (DMGI), the business information division of the Daily Mail & General Trust plc, today announces that Mark Milner, formerly Managing Director of Landmark UK Property, has been appointed to the position of CEO Landmark Information Group. He will be based in Landmark’s UK offices, but assumes responsibility for all of Landmark activities in UK and Europe. Milner replaces Stephen Stout who has been appointed to the new role of CEO DMG Information Asia Pacific.
Milner joined Landmark full time in September 2012 from The Digital Property Group where he was CEO, and has been a member of the Landmark Board since 2009.
Landmark is the UK’s leading provider of land and property search information, including digital mapping, environmental risk reports for property professionals and sophisticated property management tools to surveyors, risk and fraud managers and the broader financial markets. It also has operations in Germany in the form of On-Geo, and interests in Holland.
Commenting on his new role, Milner said, “Landmark is truly a great company and I feel privileged to be taking over the reins of such a successful business from Stephen Stout who has steered the business with such great leadership and judgement. Happily I will be able to draw on Stephen’s experience as he will remain on our Board, and I have every confidence our new Landmark will go from strength to strength; we have many exciting plans for new and existing customers, and a great selection of people in the team to deliver against those ambitions.”
Commenting on the appointment, out-going CEO Stephen Stout commented: “Mark has made a big impact on Landmark since his arrival and I have absolute confidence he and the team will continue to have success expanding Landmark’s UK business and developing further in Europe. Landmark is in great hands.”
Milner will report to Suresh Kavan, CEO of DMGI, who commented, “We are delighted to have Mark at the helm at Landmark. He and his team have already restructured the UK business and launched a series of products aimed at the financial risk and environmental markets. I am very confident he will expand our position in the UK market and continue the work to take Landmark further into Europe and build upon our successes in Germany.”
