Online group buying portal Groupon has appointed Malaysian Joel Neoh as its new vice president and general manager in Southeast Asia.

The company said Neoh would manage its operations in India, Singapore, and Thailand in addition to his existing role as chief executive for Malaysia.

"In just three years, Groupon has grown into a daily habit among consumers across 48 countries around the world with more than 36 million active customers worldwide," said Neoh. "I am excited to lend a hand to further drive growth within the region given that Asia is one of the major markets for Groupon."

Neoh co-founded a successful student agency during his undergraduate years before moving on to create Youth Asia. He started Groupsmore, a local e-commerce platform in 2010, which was acquired by Groupon, Inc.
