Interview: Gabby Leibovich

Gabby Leibovich has established himself at the forefront of the online deals industry in Australia with two very popular sites, CatchOfTheDay and Scoopon. In particular, CatchOfTheDay has grown exponentially since Leibovich started the business five years ago, when he began selling excess merchandise out of his garage.

In this podcast, Leibovich explains the business model that he believes has allowed him to weather the GFC and pinpoints the challenges that traditional, physical department stores must now face.

Press play to listen.
