Smoove CEO, Jesper With-Fogstrup, to step down from the business.

By PEXA - February 26, 2024

PEXA Group Limited today confirms the departure of Smoove CEO, Jesper With-Fogstrup, who has taken the decision to leave the conveyancing technology business after three years to pursue the next stage of his career.

With-Fogstrup will leave the business officially in August, and will be assisting in a smooth transition. His leadership responsibilities will be assumed by PEXA’s UK CEO Joe Pepper during this time. A comprehensive process to appoint a successor is underway.

UK CEO Joe Pepper commented: “I would like to place on record my thanks to Jesper for all his hard work over the past three years. He has been instrumental in Smoove’s growth, delivering significant platform development and business growth, the successful rebranding of the business to Smoove from ULS Technologies and most recently, overseeing the sale of the business to PEXA in December 2023. We look forward to the next phase of Smoove’s development as we seek to further empower Smoove’s platforms through integration with PEXA’s new technologies.”

Outgoing Smoove CEO Jesper With-Fogstrup added: “Over the past three years, it has been an incredible honour to witness the transformation of Smoove. The decision to step down is not made lightly, but I am confident that now is the right time for this transition after the successful sale of Smoove to PEXA. Smoove is in a strong position, thanks to the collective efforts of our talented team, and it is with great optimism for the future that I pass the baton to our new owners.”

PEXA continues to scale its proposition in the UK. It launched a payment system in September 2022, resulting in the UK’s first ever digitally enabled remortgage transaction. It has established its UK headquarters in Leeds, following its acquisition of conveyancing firm Optima Legal in December 2022. It completed the acquisition of Smoove in December 2023, providing access to more than 75 conveyancer firms through Smoove’s conveyancer platform, in addition to another 2,100 firms through Smoove’s role arranging panels for lenders across the UK market.
