Tradeling, the eMarketplace focused on business-to-business (B2B) transactions in the Middle East and North Africa has announced the appointment of Harry Pappas as Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective immediately.

As CFO, Harry will focus on accelerating and expanding the business and leading the creation of finance function within the company to enable its strategic growth plan.

Pappas joins the company with over 20 years of experience in finance and accounting within global enterprises. He possesses expertise in financial management, investor relations, fundraising, strategic planning and risk management.

He previously served as chief financial officer at Niometrics, a Singapore-headquartered deep network analytics and cybersecurity company where he implemented systems and raised capital to finance growth that eventually led to the recent acquisition of the company by private equity backed Mobileum. Harry held several senior roles within brands such as Mobiserve and Delta Partners Group.

“With Tradeling being on an exponential growth journey, we are thrilled to have Harry join our team” Tradeling’s CEO, Marius Ciavola stated. “Harry is a strong and seasoned executive with a track record in developing successful corporate strategies and integrated business planning. As the company keeps expanding, his financial expertise will be crucial in positioning Tradeling as the dominant B2B eMarketplace in the MENA region.”

Pappas commented: “I’m looking forward to starting this adventure with Tradeling. To be a part of the company’s growth and journey to unlocking the region for B2B buyers and sellers is quite exciting.”

Meanwhile, earlier this year, Tradeling launched Tradeling Pro, an artificial intelligence and machine learning digital procurement solution for multinational businesses and big enterprises. Tradeling Pro streamlines the purchasing process for large businesses by offering flexible payment periods and combining bills into a single monthly invoice regardless of the number of vendors involved.

“With Tradeling Pro, procurement teams at large organisations don’t need to find, communicate or manage multiple suppliers; Tradeling does it on their behalf by acting as a single supplier with a key account manager as a main point of contact. The offering curates a catalogue of goods which only displays items typically required by the buyer. Tradeling Pro can also recommend alternative goods for buyers at the most competitive of prices because we can drive down costs through bulk orders while ensuring the quick delivery of in-demand goods which are stored in our warehouse,” Ciavola had said then.
