It was this same passion and curiosity that drove young Cameron to start several businesses, including a web design firm, as well as several iterations of what would be known as TradeGecko today.
Constrained by New Zealand’s limited ecosystem, he would make the difficult decision to leave friends, family and loved ones behind and pack his bags for Singapore – where fast forward several years TradeGecko has grown to a global platform, with significant venture backing and customers in over 90 countries. Now , Cameron manages a team of 50 across offices in Singapore and the Philippines. As CEO his wide range of responsibilities encompass everything from development-centric roles like fund raising and business development to functions like HR.
The future’s looking bright for Cameron Priest and TradeGecko – and perhaps his lifelong dream of building a billion-dollar company might not be so far-fetched after all.
