Dubai-centered dubizzle, a leading provider of classified advertising in the UAE, recently announced three new leadership staff appointments in its continuing quest to remain the emirates’ preeminent online ad space and service provider as it grows.
Jean-Pierre Mondalek will be general manager of motors, Vineet Singla becomes general manager of new business and product director and Anthony Blackford is the new head of display advertising.
With a team of more than 160 individuals, dubizzle, which was recently ranked as the UAE’s ninthh most visited website by SimilarWeb, has invested in skilled personnel to increase user value and experience.
"As we continue to grow and expand our presence across the UAE, we have aligned our business model accordingly," Barry Judge, general manager at dubizzle, said. “The addition of seasoned professionals to the dubizzle team supports our strategic growth plans and we are confident that under their leadership, we will continue to further strengthen dubizzle's presence and offering in the UAE.”
Prior to taking the helm at dubizzle, Singla served as chief product officer for OLX South Asia as well as working for Yahoo. Mondalek supported a team at Uber Technologies, also in the UAE; while Blackford brings valuable expertise gained during his tenure at eBay.
"Two years ago, dubizzle monetized the motoring section of the platform and has since experienced tremendous growth in both listings and leads - making it the most liquid automotive marketplace in the UAE,” Mondalek said. “As a Dubai native, I'm excited to join dubizzle and look forward to delivering innovative digital solutions to the UAE automotive sector that offer consumers and dealers the best return on investment, and of course, the best quality motoring ads for our established and growing user base."
