Carousell Group today announced the appointment of former Razer executive Edwin Chan, as its CFO.

Chan, who will report to Carousell co-founder and group CEO Quek, Siu Rui, will oversee the group’s overall capital strategy, including corporate development, fundraising, as well as mergers and acquisitions. He will also oversee corporate controllership and accounting, financial reporting, investor relations, legal and compliance functions.

“It is an absolute privilege to partner Edwin and welcome him to our team. His passion for our mission, depth of company building experience leading Razer from Series A to IPO, and exemplary leadership will be invaluable as we chart our next chapter in our mission to inspire the world to start selling,” says Quek.

“Lucas, Marcus and I look forward to working with Edwin and learning from each other to better serve our community of tens of millions of users across our eight markets in Asia, and to make secondhand the first choice,” Quek adds.

Chan previously worked at Razer for 12 years. He served as its CFO between 2013 to 2019 before he was appointed Razer’s chief investment officer in early 2020.

“Carousell is on the cusp of spearheading a powerful new era in online commerce. It is not like any of the businesses I have helped build before. Being a fan and user of the platform, it led me to connecting with Siu Rui many years ago. I have since continued to admire the co-founders and their journey in building Carousell to become a truly people-oriented, mission-focused company. I am truly honoured to be part of the team’s journey as Carousell continues to be at the cutting edge of reimagining online classifieds and becoming the leading brand in key vertical segments,” says Chan.
