Kijiji Welcomes Chris Loschiavo as Account Executive

TORONTO, July 13, 2017 – Kijiji Canada, part of the eBay Classifieds Group, has announced the appointment of Chris Loschiavo to the position of Account Executive for the Display, Agency Sales team, based in Toronto.

Kijiji is thrilled to have Chris move into this role – he was previously an Account Executive on Kijiji’s Direct Display team. As a member of the national Agency Sales team, his role now shifts to partnering with select media agencies to grow business and continue amplifying Kijiji’s premium advertising solutions.

Chris has been with Kijiji since 2014, when he started as a Sales Planner in Toronto. During his time, he has been responsible for ensuring smooth campaign executions, as well as driving national business development and strategic sales. More recently, Chris transitioned from a Sales Planner to an Account Manager position, where he broadened his responsibilities and began managing small agencies’ business portfolios. Chris rose further in the organization to join the Direct Display team as an Account Executive, where he continued his relationships with smaller agencies and direct clients, until transitioning over to the Agency Sales team.

Prior to Kijiji, Chris was a media planner with Carat, where he worked primarily in the autos sector.

“Chris’ background in both media planning and sales will assist in elevating Kijiji’s diverse offerings, and expanding our reach as a company,” said Alan Maitland, Head of Display, Jobs & Real Estate at Kijiji. “His expertise and familiarity with the Kijiji brand and its network of retail-focused, eCommerce sites – combined with his industry experience – makes him a perfect fit for the Agency Sales team.”

Chris Loschiavo remarked:

“Kijiji has a unique user story to tell right now. Through data-driven insights, we’re helping brands reach Canadians – already in a shopping mindset – throughout their purchasing journey. This provides a unique opportunity to partner with some exceptional agencies that I know will benefit from our data-driven solutions. I look forward to building on the positive momentum Kijiji is currently experiencing and leveraging my industry – and company – knowledge to further the growth of the entire team.”
