Ryan Watkins grabs GM role at GrabOne

Ryan Watkins has been appointed General Manager at GrabOne. He takes over from Vaughan Magnusson who was in the role for a year and has stepped down to pursue other opportunities.

Watkins has extensive experience in the online advertising space, with prior roles including three years’ tenure as Sales Director at GrabOne, where he successfully expanded the sales team from 12 to 52 people, and two years as Sales Manager at finda.

Having worked with SME advertisers for the past six years, Watkins brings to the table a strong understanding of group buying and demand channel management.

He is excited to be leading New Zealand’s leading daily deal team during GrabOne’s next phase of growth.

In his new General Manager role, Watkins highlights three key goals for the coming year: “I’ll be focusing on launching a range of new products that meet both the goals of our business and those of our merchant partners; will continue to evolve the GrabOne business to give our 1.4 million consumers relevant content and an enhanced buying experience; and will ensure our business model remains flexible to meet the challenges of the desktop to mobile migration.”

Watkins holds an MBA from Auckland University of Technology and a Bachelor of Arts and Economics from Massey University.

GrabOne leads the online deals market and has grown to become one of New Zealand’s largest ecommerce businesses. Its family of websites includes: Experience, Escapes, Store, Bottle and GoBook.
