The market capitalisation of property listings group Domain Holdings was slashed by $A420m on 22 January, after the sudden resignation of CEO Antony Catalano sparked a sharp fall in its share price. The stock closed 17.2 per cent lower at $A2.75 as investors pondered the reason for Catalano’s departure just two months after Domain was spun off by Fairfax Media. Independent director Greg Ellis has been touted as a potential successor to Catalano. He currently heads Scout24 in Germany and he is a former CEO of Domain rival REA Group.
