Anders Skoe joined Trade Me on 22 July as our new CEO.
Anders comes to Trade Me from Finn.no, a Norwegian classified and marketplace business very similar to us. Anders was CEO of Finn and vice-president of Nordic Marketplaces at Schibsted in Norway.
Before joining Finn in 2010, Anders worked for Google and Radiance Technologies.
“I’m really excited to be at Trade Me. I continue to be impressed by Trade Me’s history, values, people - and potential,” he said. “I’m spending my first few months here learning everything I can about how this awesome Kiwi business works and seeing what challenges and opportunities there are in front of us.
“I’ll be catching up with Trade Me’s diverse customers too, so I can get their take on how we work.”
Anders, his wife and their three children moved to New Zealand last month and are settling into the Kiwi way of life.
Trade Me’s previous CEO, Jon Macdonald, left after over 10 years in charge but has joined the Trade Me board as a director.
