Groupon has announced that Patrick Schmidt, previously co-CEO of Groupon Australia and New Zealand, has been chosen to lead Groupon’s Latin America business.

Tobias Teuber, who shared responsibility with Schmidt as co-CEO, will become the sole CEO of Australia and New Zealand.

“I want to thank the entire Groupon Australia and New Zealand teams for the great experience and excellent work,” Schmidt said. “I am extremely proud what we have accomplished in the first 12 months, especially becoming the market leader in Australia, according to Telsyste.”

Teuber said there are exciting times ahead for Groupon in both Australia and New Zealand

“Our market leadership is a testament to the fantastic teams we’ve built in both countries. It’s also equally important for Groupon to lead the market in terms of customer service and support for merchants,” he said.

“We have and will continue to invest in providing the best possible local support for our customers in Australia and New Zealand.”
