Onyedika Oha, formerly the Head of Grop.ly West Africa has left the company and joined a new competitor.
Grop.ly, a Nigerian Groupon clone which launched in May 2010 provides deals from local businesses to customers. The company is globally headquatered in Houston, USA with operations in West Africa and Lagos, Nigeria as its regional headquaters.
As CEO of Grop.ly, Oha handled overall strategy and day-to-day operations of all components of the business for a period of eight months.
The group-buying site allows consumers 40% – 90% discounts from spas to salons, manicures to movies.
This week, Oha confirmed to us at TechLoy that he has left Grop.ly and joined DealDey.com. When asked about his new role at DealDey, he said: “I’m officially the Head of Gyst.com, which is a sister company to DealDey.com”.
In case you don’t know, Gyst is Nigeria’s number 1 local search engine for businesses and movies. DealDey (launched in March 2011) is a group-buying service that offers deals from local businesses to customers.
Prior to this, Oha was Director, Sales Group at Mobinatrics, where he was in charge of finding and crafting new market opportunities across a global spectrum (horizontal/vertical markets). He also ran both Sales, Marketing and Business Development Sub-groups along a plethora or independent product/service-lines.
