As announced in a LinkedIn post yesterday, OLX Europe head, Sergey Gapochenko, has stepped down from his role at the company. 

In the post, Gapochenko wrote:

“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.”

Gapochenko has spent the last seven years dedicated to optimizing OLX Europe as the Head of New Ventures. Before he was promoted to Head of New Ventures, Gapochenko held two prominent positions as General Manager, first as GM Ukraine & Central Asia, which he held for 5 years between 2013 and 2018, then as GM Europe & Central Asia, OLC Markets for a year and seven months. 

Gapochenko has deep experience in digital media, having worked for a number of media businesses before joining OLX.
