As soon-to-be Executive VP of European Markets for Adevinta, Santorsola will lead teams in the Spanish, German, Italian, Austrian, Hungarian, Dutch, and Irish markets. 

On his position transition, Santorsola said: 

“A new stage for the company begins. Adevinta becomes the world leader in online marketplaces and our presence in Europe is strengthened. In this position, the Spanish market will continue to have great weight.

"I am very grateful for these three years at the helm of Adevinta Spain for all that we have achieved together, especially in this last period of the pandemic." 

Adevinta's new management team will continue to be led by the current CEO, Rolv Erik Ryssdal, and will consist of the following members:
