Moving on

Today is my last day at Trade Me.

In 2000 I was the first person hired who didn’t share a surname with Sam.

After a crazy 18 months I left to go and live and work in London for a bit. In that first stint I’d seen Trade Me grow from 10,000 members to 100,000. Shortly after that Sam and Jess left too. Whether Trade Me would make it was an open question.

Times have changed!

Nonetheless, I have mixed feelings about leaving for a second time.

You sometimes don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. It’s a great crew here and a working environment that I haven’t experienced anywhere else. It’s been an honour and a privilege to be part of it.

On the other hand I’m really excited about the challenges which are ahead.

I’ll talk more about those here in the next few weeks.

Stay tuned …

  1. Wow, there’s some news!

    I’m sure it is a bitter sweet move for you after having such a big role in making TM what it is today. Look forward to seeing what comes next.

  2. vio con dios, hombre. You will be missed.

    Remember, when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
