Groupon’ international operations head steps down

Marc Samwer

Groupon’s head of international operations, Marc Samwer, will be replaced by Veit Dengler. Samwer has headed the online coupon firm’s international business, which generates two-thirds of revenues, since Groupon bought his clone, Citydeal, in 2010. Dengler steps down as head of Dell’s Eastern European and Russian operations to take up the post.

Samwer’s time at Groupon has been turbulent, with a record 50 UK advertising code violations for misleading promotions in the past year. In Germany, Groupon has been accused of harsh labour conditions.
