“Today marks the last day of my 7+ year tenure with #olxgroup. It's been an amazing journey where I gave the whole of myself and got even more back.
“My role has been changing in scale and nature over the years. Now I feel like this is the moment for me to cut ropes. I'm taking a break before starting my hopefully next big thing.”
