The Remote CEO Builds Online Reputation To Seal Deals

   “Remote work is not less communication. It’s actually MORE  communication, that’s how it starts.
But just because you don’t see each other,  you need to feel like you over communicate a bit
to keep those things together. Keep that personal relationships.”   

Jakob Rost

Jakob moved to Indonesia from Berlin more than 7 years ago to become Managing Director of Lazada. Jakob built Lazada’s Marketplace from zero to 70% of GTV and managed geographical expansion for the group.
