Perth-based office equipment financing company ThinkSmart has appointed former eBay general manager Southeast Asia Sam McDonagh as its executive general manager for its Australasian arm.

Mr McDonagh, a nine year veteran of eBay, will be responsible for continuing to grow ThinkSmart's existing businesses in Australia and New Zealand and will be responsible for developing new territories within Asia.

Commenting on Mr McDonagh's appointment, Mr Montarello said he saw significant scope for continuing to expand ThinkSmart's products within the wider Asian market.

"Sam joins us at a pivotal time as we are building our operations in North America, and cementing our growth within Europe," ThinkSmart chief executive Ned Montarello said.

"His experience with eBay in growing that business throughout Southeast Asia will be incredibly valuable as we look to extract further value from our Australian processing hub."

Mr McDonagh was a founding member of the management team for eBay in Australia in 1999 prior to moving to eBay's main campus in California in 2001 where he worked for nearly five years in a number of senior finance and marketing management roles.
