K-Club Breakfast Speaker – 2nd July 2020

Steve Oliver

Co-founder & Group CEO of Music Magpie

Steve Oliver is the co-Founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of musicMagpie, the world’s largest recommerce business, achieving a turnover of c£135m in just its 12th year of trading.

Starting life as a service that enabled users to trade-in their old CDs, DVDs and Games, the company has re-invented itself in the last three years to become the UK’s biggest and best mobile phone recycler, with well over half the company’s turnover now coming from the consumer technology.

The business is the world’s largest seller in the history of both Amazon and eBay globally, recently surpassing 10m positive feedback scores on its eBay selling account, but its biggest single sales channel is now from the musicMagpie online store which was launched four years ago to complete the model of being the ‘lazy man’s eBay’ where both buying and selling used product is fast, free and easy. The business has a simple mission statement and that is to be “The trusted and smarter way to buy and sell for you and the planet” with sustainability at the heart of everything it does.

The business also has a fast-growing US brand operating the same model, called Decluttr, based out of Atlanta, Georgia that is now run rating at c$50m per annum.
