There has been a change in management at OLX Brazil with the news that Andries Oudshoorn is set to step down from his role with Olivier Aizac replacing him as CEO by June 1st.

Oudshoorn leaves OLX Brazil after 12 years, eight as CEO, and will take on an advisory role at the joint Prosus and Adevinta-owned marketplace operator. He was previously the founder and CEO at BomNegócio, which merged with OLX Brazil in 2015.

“Olivier is an experienced professional in marketplaces around the world. I am fully confident that he will continue OLX’s success and carry forward our culture of innovation, commitment and passion."
