We obtained information that Susie Sugden, Managing Director of Lazada Indonesia, has resigned. This is the second resignation of the top personnel in the Rocket Internet regional group in the last month after Nadiem Makarim decided to resign as Zalora Indonesia’s CEO in April. Lazada and Zalora are the cutting edge of Rocket Internet e-commerce business in Southeast Asia. Lazada is present in mid-May of this year and focusing in the area of electronic and household items.
Of course, the resignation of these two key personnel is intriguing among the instigators of the internet businessmen. Moreover, a few days ago, a large e-commerce company in Indonesia has formed an association to improve the quality of e-commerce ecosystem of Indonesia which is in the stage of growing – with a fast growth, according to the culture shift. Unfortunately, for the time being, we are still groping in the dark, what on earth is going on inside Rocket Internet.
Susie Sugden, prior to serve as Lazada Indonesia’s leader, was working for leading consulting firm, the Boston Consulting Group. Sugden has a social science background from University of Melbourne.
