TORONTO, October 2, 2018 – Kijiji Canada, part of the eBay Classifieds Group, has announced the appointment of Kevin Au to the position of National Account Executive, joining Kijiji’s Display Sales team.
Kevin comes to the Kijiji team with an extensive background in strategic account planning and management as well as digital sales. He most recently held the position of Senior Account Executive at Chameleon Digital, where he led the launch of a new mobile offering to agency and direct clients.
