The Dubai-based online marketplaces operator Dubizzle Group (formerly EMPG) has appointed Pablo Londono as its new Chief Financial Officer.
Prior to joining Dubizzle Group, Londono (left) worked in a variety of finance leadership roles during a 15-year stint at Amazon including as CFO of the company's MENA operations.
He acquired his Bachelor’s in Production Engineering followed by an MBA from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, with experience spanning various industries, including Technology, Logistics, Manufacturing, and Operations Research.
“Pablo has a highly successful track record that perfectly complements Dubizzle Group’s dynamics across its various markets. We are excited about his addition to the team and look forward to benefiting from the significant experience and expertise he brings to the table,” said Group CEO Imran Ali Khan.
Speaking of his new role, Londono said:
“I am very excited to join the Dubizzle team. It is thrilling to be a part of this dynamic, fast-paced, and customer-centric organization. I look forward to contributing to the company’s continued growth and its unique culture of value-creation."
Londono's appointment comes at a time when the Dubizzle Group is gearing up towards an IPO. After raising $200 million in October 2022, Khan admitted that the firm was "preparing for an IPO in the near future" and since then Dubizzle Group has sold off unprofitable overseas assets such as Thai marketplace Kaidee, Mexcian real estate portal Lamudi and Bangladeshi real estate portal bproperty.
