The team of Aussie entrepreneurs who bought the once-iconic TradingPost from Telstra a year ago have made another acquisition – this time it’s jobs and services booking website ServiceCentral.
Founded in 2005 by father and son duo Bruce and Danial Ahchow, ServiceCentral established itself as trade and service businesses began re-allocating their advertising spend from print to online.
TradingPost CEO Geoff Holmes said acquisition is consistent with the group’s growth strategy for TradingPost, and in particular, the trades and services category, which it plans to roll out over the coming months.
“We see many opportunities to build on the ServiceCentral offering and provide even better results for consumers, while giving trade and service businesses greater advertising exposure and increased lead generation at lower costs,” he said.
ServiceCentral’s outgoing CEO, Danial Ahchow, said it was fantastic to see the website become part of an iconic brand.
“The passionate and experienced team now at TradingPost are well positioned to take ServiceCentral into the next era of growth and expansion,” he said.
