According to a blog post announcing the appointment, Brunelle (LinkedIn profile) brings more than 20 years of digital display expertise to Kijiji Canada, which is part of the EBay Classifieds Group.

Most recently, she served as national sales manager at Olive Media. Brunelle was a co-founder of the technology startup Spaceishare Inc. — a Canadian marketplace for self-storage and parking — and still serves as the company’s CRO. She also worked at Yellow Pages Group and Casale Media, now known as Index Exchange.

Based in the Toronto area, Brunelle will oversee display sales and focus on building media agency relationships across Canada.

Kijiji is the country’s top classifieds site, reaching more than half of Canada’s monthly online population; despite competition from rival Craigslist.ca — which has failed to transfer its U.S. success to Canada. EBay Classifieds operates in more than 20 countries and more than 1,000 cities worldwide.
