“While I will be stepping down from my role as CEO, my commitment to the region and its untapped potential remains steadfast,” said Marius Ciavola. “I am deeply grateful for my incredible journey with Tradeling, and I look forward to leveraging my expertise to continue driving positive change. There are still many unaddressed challenges and opportunities within this space, and I am excited to focus on solving them.”

Their unwavering commitment to innovation and shared vision have contributed significantly to Tradeling’s achievements and impact on the e-commerce industry.”
He continued: “I would also like to express my appreciation to DIEZ and Tradeling’s board of directors for their efforts in reinforcing Dubai’s position as a progressive nerve centre for global commerce. It is for the UAE’s futuristic vision that we were able to see the untapped potential in the e-commerce space and truly shift the future of trade in the region.”
Marius’s strategic insights, relentless drive, and dedication to excellence have been invaluable assets to the growth of many businesses in MENA over the past 15 years.
His commitment to driving organizations with a clear purpose and fostering growth in the e-commerce space will continue into the next stop in his journey, which will be announced shortly.
