Rupert HuntFounder & CEO
Rupert founded SpareRoom in 2004. He's a passionate advocate of flatsharing and believes living with the right people beats living on your own any day. In 2016 he used SpareRoom to find two housemates to share his 300 year old London townhouse with 'pay what you can afford' rent and filmed the results for a YouTube series.
Matt HutchinsonCommunications Director
Matt has been SpareRoom's media spokesperson since 2007 and regularly provides comment and opinion on renting, sharing and housing for the UK and US media. He spearheaded SpareRoom's six year Raise the Roof campaign, which led directly to the UK government encouraging more homeowners to rent out their empty bedrooms to combat the housing crisis.
