Eurora is extremely excited to announce the appointment of James Doyle as CEO of its Latin American (LATAM) operations, marking Eurora’s strategic entry to the world’s fastest-growing retail e-commerce region.
Eurora’s expansion to LATAM
According to Insider Intelligence, LATAM saw a remarkable rise in sales to $104.60 billion in 2020, a growth rate of 63.3% – a figure five times greater than pre-pandemic forecasts. The region’s digital buyer base, currently exceeding 300 million individuals, is forecasted to grow more than 20% by 2027, as per Statista; and its e-commerce market is on a trajectory to expand its volume by 25% between 2021 and 2025, exceeding $700 billion, as per analysis by AMI.
Anneli Aljas, CEO of Eurora, comments: “Latin America’s rapid growth and extensive digital buyer base make it an ideal market for our AI-powered e-commerce compliance platform. Our presence in the region will simplify cross-border trade compliance for companies, both those wanting to enter the region as well as local businesses wishing to export globally.”
More about James Doyle
James brings over two decades of executive experience in strategic leadership positions with companies like Marks & Spencer, Emirates SkyCargo, Kuehne+Nagel and Swissport Europe. His deep understanding of the cargo delivery, supply chain, and e-commerce sectors positions him well to steer Eurora’s expansion into this dynamic market.
Doyle shared his enthusiasm: “I’ve joined Eurora given the transformative potential of its AI/ML backed cross-border trade compliance solution on the evolving landscape of global trade and supply chains. I am eager to lead Eurora’s entry into LATAM, simulating growth and unlocking trade between LATAM and the rest of the world.”
