TradeGecko parts ways with head of marketing after two months

Jaime NgThe global VP of marketing for Singapore startup TradeGecko has abruptly left the company after just two months.

Jaime Ng was hired in April to build the company’s brand as the three year-old inventory management business expands into new countries and verticals, but has moved on, TradeGecko confirmed this afternoon. A replacement has yet to be found.

The experienced performance marketer joined from PurpleClick Media, where she ran campaigns for Facebook, Google and Yahoo. In her career, she has worked in digital marketing roles for TripAdvisor, MySpace, Mediacorp and Premier Farnell Group.

TradeGecko’s CEO Cameron Priest told Mumbrella in a statement: “TradeGecko has a proud record of attracting and retaining some of the best talent in the market. As a fast growing technology company we are constantly evolving and adapting as we expand into new markets.”

“We thank Jamie Ng for her contribution to TradeGecko and we wish her all the best for moving forwards with her career,” he said, adding that the company has “a fully capable marketing team” and international expansion plans would be going ahead as planned.

The news emerges just a month after the company opened an office in Toronto and just as TradeGecko looks to set up in Melbourne and move into the beer, wine and spirits vertical.
