“I’m pleased to be welcoming Mark to the ever-expanding OnBuy team at such a critical and exciting time for the business,” OnBuy founder and chief executive Cas Paton said.

“The global industry experience Mark brings from big names will be invaluable to OnBuy as we continue our worldwide expansion.

“Mark has grown businesses in the UK, North America and the Middle East, so I’m confident that this level of expertise will drive OnBuy forward even faster.”

During his time at eCG, Mark managed his time between driving growth within the Canadian domestic market and developing the global commercial strategy with a specific focus on mobile as consumers migrated to the small screen.

He also managed and negotiated the group’s commercial partnerships, including Google and Facebook.

Lister said: “I’m looking forward to getting started at OnBuy. Success in the ecommerce sector comes from providing a phenomenal customer experience, so it’s exciting to be joining a growing team of skilled individuals to help accelerate OnBuy’s already impressive growth.

“With the experience I’ve gained over the years, both nationally and internationally and with the learnings I bring from previous roles, I’m looking to maximise the global opportunity for OnBuy.

“By working with my colleagues across the business, I’m confident that we can deliver on the promise of a fair, transparent marketplace model to customers and sellers across the world.”

Lister’s appointment comes as OnBuy hires its first C-suite to oversee a growing team of over 75 people, just four years after launching.
